Metropolitan Issues Statement on Parkland High School Shooting

Our Lenten Spring is disturbed with the news of another tragic shooting, this time at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. The clergy and faithful of the Northeast American Diocese of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church join me in offering our prayers for the wounded, the deceased, and for their loved ones.

Our reaction to such senseless violence, especially during this sacred season, must be to condemn such evil acts, and come together as a community to support the affected. May our Lord Jesus Christ, offer His comfort and peace to the community of Parkland, Florida, and may He awaken our great nation to act against such violence and evil.
