Statement from Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades, Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend

“I ask for the prayers of the faithful of our diocese for the victims of the terrible tragedy in Charlottesville on August 12th. We must always stand against the poisonous sin of racism. As disciples of Jesus, we oppose all hatred and bigotry, including ideologies of white supremacy. Let us combat these evils through prayers, words, and actions that reflect the love of Christ and safeguard the dignity of every person.”
