Nice, France: 14th July 2016

 

A message from The Bishop in Europe

I want to assure the people of Nice, and indeed of the whole of France, of my prayers at this time, on behalf of the whole Diocese in Europe. The terrible events of last night, which was to have been a day of national celebration, have reminded us that we must yet again stand together as men and women in the face of violence. I continue to pray for peace and, today in particular, we hold in our prayers the victims of this attack and their families. We also pray for Fr Peter Jackson and the people of Holy Trinity, Nice, situated so close to the Promenade des Anglais who, along with all faith communities of the city, will minister to all affected by this tragedy. May you be strengthened by the prayers of the whole Diocese, your brothers and sisters in Christ.
