Bishop: We mourn alongside our brothers and sisters in Hermann

The following is a statement from the Most Reverend W. Shawn McKnight, Bishop of Jefferson City:

The Diocese of Jefferson City is mourning alongside our brothers and sisters in our community of Hermann, where an incomprehensible act of violence has killed one police officer and wounded another. Let us pray together and ask God to heal all those among us who are in pain from this tragedy. May we find the capacity to free our society from these acts of violence and fully protect the dignity of human life.
