Bishop Burbidge Responds to the Terrorist Attack in Manchester



May 23, 2017


In union with all people of goodwill throughout the Diocese of Arlington, I express my deep sorrow and offer my fervent prayers for those who died and for those who were injured at England’s Manchester Arena.  In response to this horrific attack, we must intensify our prayer for an end to all forms of violence.  I call on all of the faithful in our diocese to remember in prayer, especially at all Masses throughout the coming days and this weekend, the souls of the departed and the suffering of the injured and their families.  May our Lady Queen of Peace comfort those who mourn and obtain for the world the peace of her Son, the Risen Lord.
