The shooting today at the elementary school in Uvalde, TX was pure evil. Our prayers are with the victims, families, and community.

A great day for the @DioStPete as Fr. Don Amodeo and Fr. Zach Brasseur are ordained priests! May God bless them as they begin their priestly ministry! #courageouslyliving #courageouspriests

Our prayers go out to the victims and families of the shooting in Buffalo today. Racial hate and murder have no place in society. It is sinful and criminal. 🙏
