We are saddened by the tragic events at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

The Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon and their entire community are praying for everyone in the Uvalde community. Especially for the victims of this tragedy and the grieving families and friends who are left behind.

We ask everyone to join us in prayer for everyone affected by this tragedy.

Loving God,
Gather to your heart the victims of violence and hate.
In the wake of unexplainable suffering, walk with us.

Comfort those who lost loved ones unexpectedly and needlessly. Renew their hearts with your grace. Wash them with your tears. Breathe your life into their spirits.

Guide us through our fears and anxious moments. Bless us with the knowledge of your presence always.
Raise up among us those who will work tirelessly for unity and reconciliation. May we all become agents of your peace.

Amen
