Archbishop Currie's Statement Regarding Quebec Attack

Archbishop Currie, the Archdiocese of St John's and the whole Church stand in solidarity with people who suffer persecution, oppression, hate and violence. We are one human family. Our parishes have always welcomed refugees and immigrants of all faiths and of none. We offer our prayers for those who died and were injured in the attack in Quebec, and also for those who cannot see beyond their limited horizons of hatred or bigotry. We pledge to continue to build bridges, rather than walls. Love is stronger than hate.

We encourage people to join the human shields being formed on Friday at the mosque on Logy Bay Road and at the chapel at the School of Social Work, MUN.

Build bridges, not walls.
