Message from Bishop Kirk Smith of Arizona – Las Vegas shooting

Posted Oct 3, 2017

[Episcopal Diocese of Arizona]

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I share with you the statement issued today by the Bishops Against Gun Violence, of which I am a member. It is a call to prayer, but also to action.

One small, symbolic action is to join in the bell ringing scheduled for tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. our time. If this is too short of a notice, you might consider doing it another time tomorrow.  

Please know of my solidarity with all of you as we mourn the loss of our neighboring brothers and sisters in Nevada. I have been in personal contact with Bishop Edwards of Nevada, who appreciates our support at this time.
