Brigidine Sisters condemn the fatal attack on Sir David Amess, a British lawmaker who died after suffering multiple stab wounds at a Methodist church in southeast England.
Sir David, who was a Member of Parliament since 1983, was Catholic, pro-life, and reportedly a strong supporter of Catholic education. When the attack took place he was holding a meeting with his constituents at Belfairs Methodist Church.
We commit to continue to work and pray for an end to all violence – Loving God, make us instruments of your peace.
Cardinal Vincent Nichols, President, Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales issued the following statement following the attack.
