In this time of tragedy the solidarity of faith communities is of the highest importance. We stand with the Sikhs in their commitment to equality, non-violence and compassion. We pray with them to God who unites us all that this heartbreaking act will only serve to strengthen our collective resolve to end the senseless violence which plagues our society.
Ralph Singh,the director of publications and public relations for the Sikh Gobind Sadan, responded to the mass shooting that has devastated the faith community by stating Sikhs, wherever they go in the world build a "community of peace, an inclusive community to stand as an affirmation of what we now call pluralism." As Xaverians we stand in soldidarity with Sikhs in buidling communities of peace.
