WASHINGTON – In response to the news of the mass school shooting in Uvalde, Texas reported the afternoon of May 24, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops  offered the following statement from its spokesperson, Chieko Noguchi, director of public affairs.
“There have been too many school shootings, too much killing of the innocent. Our Catholic faith calls us to pray for those who have died and to bind the wounds of others, and we join our prayers along with the community in Uvalde and Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller. As we do so, each of us also needs to search our souls for ways that we can do more to understand this epidemic of evil and violence and implore our elected officials to help us take action.”
