Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I express deep sympathy on the tragic and violent death of those who died in Chapel Hill this past week and ask all in the diocese to pray for them and their families. May we also be one in asking God to bring an end to all violence in our communities and to fill us with peace. Together, may we renew our reverence for the sacredness of all life and the dignity of every human person.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
+ Michael F. Burbidge
Bishop of the Diocese of Raleigh
