Bishop Brennans Statement on Shootings

Bishop Robert Brennan has issued this statement regarding the shootings this weekend in El Paso and Dayton.


“The heart-rending trauma suffered this weekend by the people of El Paso and Dayton calls all of us to turn to our Lord for healing and guidance. As those who suffered the loss of loved ones and who are beginning the long journey of recovery from their injuries, losses, and pain, I ask that all in the Diocese of Columbus hold them up in prayer. May all who suffer find healing in our Lord’s loving care.”

Counting our blessings!

Novena Prayer:

God our Father, Creator of all,
Be always by the side of Your servant Bishop Robert Brennan,
Guide him in his thoughts, words, and actions,
Sustain him as an instrument of Your peace and compassion,
Give him the wisdom and strength to proclaim the truths of the
Gospel by both word and example.

Guide his footsteps so that he may always do Your Will,
Protect him from all evil and harm,
Help him to shepherd the flock of the Diocese of Columbus
and to bring the souls entrusted to his care to salvation.

Help him to convert those who live their lives contrary to the
way of Christ,
And manifest in him Your boundless mercy, Your forgiveness
and kindness.
May he always be filled with Your unfathomable love,
And may he be a vessel for that love to fill the world.
