In Prayerful Solidarity

I would like to share with you the following excerpt, which comes from the public statement released by the Canadian Religious Conference (CRC), of which our community is a member:

The Canadian Religious Conference (CRC) wishes to express its deep sadness and distress at the loss of life resulting from the terrorist attack at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre.  The members of the CRC are in prayerful solidarity with the Quebec Moslem community.  "We wish to offer our sincere condolences to all families in the grief following this heinous act," said Sister Michelle Payette, MIC, President of the CRC.  "We are all created by the One God, sisters and brothers here on earth.  In the face of this tragedy, we need to redouble our effort in favour of inter-religious dialogue, a task already involving many of our communities in Quebec and throughout Canada."
