Archbishop Stack sends message of condolence and support to New Zealand in wake of shootings

Having recently spent some days with Cardinal John Dew, Archbishop of Wellington New Zealand, at a meeting of ICEL in Rome, Archbishop George Stack of Cardiff was able to convey to him in a personal message the shock and sadness of the people of Wales at the outrageous attacks on the two mosques in Christchurch. He asked Cardinal Dew to convey to the Immams of those mosques and all who have been traumatised by these atrocities our sympathy and prayers for those who died, for those who have been injured and for those who have been bereaved. The Archbishop said:

“That such violence should have occurred whilst people were attending prayer and worship compounds the tragedy and calls for  an ever deeper understanding and reconciliation amongst the many different communities which make up our cosmopolitan world”.
