Bishop Burbidge responds to military helicopter crash in FL

3-12-2015

Statement by Bishop Michael F. Burbidge:

I ask the faithful of the Diocese of Raleigh to join me in prayer for the marines and National Guard soldiers who were killed Tuesday evening in the training exercise off Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, and for all those involved in the on-going search efforts for any survivors.  During this sacred Season of Lent, we are especially mindful of the sacrifices necessary to serve others and we remain ever grateful to our military, especially those stationed here in North Carolina, for their sacrifices in service to the cause of freedom.
