NEW YORK – Upon hearing of last night’s unspeakable mass shooting in Las Vegas and the senseless loss of life of innocent people, His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of America, on behalf of all the clergy and faithful of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America expresses with deep sorrow and great pain condolences to the families and friends of the victims.

We, as Orthodox Christians, stand by all our fellow human beings and our fellow citizens as we are called to pray fervently and unceasingly to the God of great love and mercy, for solace and peace to the hearts of those who suffer and repose for those who unjustly and prematurely perished.
