Pope Francis Sends Condolences for ‘Cruel’ Barcelona Terror Attack
2017-08-18 (Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Friday sent a telegram expressing his condolences for the victims of the terrorist attack on Barcelona, in which at least 13 people died and more than a hundred were injured.
Pope Francis expressed his “deepest sympathy” for the victims of Thursday’s terrorist attack on Barcelona “Las Ramblas Boulevard” with a telegram to the city’s Archbishop, Cardinal Juan José Omella. Pope Francis condemned the “blind violence” manifested in the attack, saying it is “a grave offense to the Creator”. Read more here.

Holy Innocents Adoration Chapel to be Refurbished
The Holy Innocents Adoration Chapel will be refurbished in the coming weeks. The walls and ceiling will be repainted and the stenciling touched up. Things will be cleaned and shined up and new chairs will be installed. This work will take three weeks and so the chapel will be closed Friday August 18th at 6:00 PM. and reopened Monday September 11th at 8:00 AM. I am grateful to a number of people who have coordinated this project and raised over $13,000 to cover its cost. We are blessed to have this Adoration Chapel in our parish and I encourage you to sign up to make a regular holy hour once the chapel reopens. Read more posts here.
