BISHOP DIMARZIO AND AUXILIARY BISHOP EMERITUS SANSARICQ ISSUE JOINT STATEMENT ON THE SITUATION IN HAITI
The Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn, and Guy Sansaricq, Auxiliary Bishop Emeritus, today have released the following statement regarding the situation in Haiti:
“Today we unite in prayer with our brothers and sisters in Haiti. The assassination of President Jovenel Moïse has sent shockwaves throughout the world and threatens to further escalate the turmoil that has plagued Haiti for some time now.
We join with the many Haitian American Catholics who call our Diocese in Brooklyn and Queens home in praying that calm and peace will win out during this distressing time. We know the uncertainty of what may happen in their ancestral homeland is weighing heavy on their hearts and minds. We ask the Lord to bring them comfort during this difficult time.”
