Statement of Bishop Thomas J. Tobin on the deadly shooting at Pittsburgh synagogue


“The shooting at the Synagogue in Pittsburgh is a horrendous act of violence and hate, to be condemned by all people of goodwill. On behalf of all the Catholics in the Diocese of Providence, I extend our sympathy and prayers to our brothers and sisters in the Jewish community. Please know that at this tragic time, we stand with you with affection and fraternal solidarity. We also think of and pray for the police officers who were injured while courageously protecting others in the line of duty.”
