*A STATEMENT regarding the new manifestations of terrorism and violence

The Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Felix of Cantalice denounces the new manifestations of terrorism and violence against innocent people at their places of worship. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and with their families and loved ones. We join with all people of good will in prayer for a transformation of the hearts of the perpetrators. As we enter this time of preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus the Peacemaker, we pray that all people will respect the life and dignity of each person.
