We, the Religious of the Sacred Heart stand in solidarity to end the senseless violence happening in our nation, our world today.
We pray for the repose of the souls of those who have died;
we pray for the families and those who grieve;
we pray for our communities, our nation and our world;
we pray for the whole human family.
