The massacre in Las Vegas this past Sunday night taking the lives of almost sixty people and injuring almost 600 people affects all of us. All people of good will are welcome this Saturday evening, October 7th to the 5:15 p.m. Mass to pray for all the victims—those who have died and those who have been injured, for healing and for an end to such senseless tragedy in our land. We can never allow ourselves to become immune to horrific violence and also to fail to pray for those caught in the grip of such violence. Those who have died will be especially remembered as we unite them to the Sacrifice of the Lord in the Eucharist.
The Archdiocesan Rosary that will take place later this same evening at the Cathedral Basilica at 7:00 p.m. will also include prayers for all those who have died and have been injured in the Las Vegas Massacre.
