Bishop J. Douglas Deshotel releases statement on mass shooting in Orlando, Florida.


The entire Diocese of Lafayette offers their prayers and condolences to the victims and families of victims of the mass shootings in Orlando, Florida.

I ask all Catholics to pray that those who lost their lives may be lovingly embraced by God. Let us pray for all those wounded that they may quickly heal and return to their families.

This horrible evil also calls all of us to pray for a conversion to value the dignity of each human life and that all return to a respect for all human life at every stage of development because the human person is created in the image and likeness of God.”
