Prayer Candle

Manchester attack “cruel and cynical beyond imagining” says Primus of Scottish Episcopal Church

May 23, 2017

The Most Rev David Chillingworth, Bishop of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church says

“Our prayers today are with the young people and their families – the bereaved and injured of last night’s atrocity in Manchester.  Every attack of this kind is an appalling outrage.  But to attack a venue crowded with young teenagers and their families is cruel and cynical beyond imagining.  Many of those who have happily been reunited with their families will be traumatised by what they experienced and what they saw.  Our politicians and our whole society must do everything possible to build a community in which such outrages are no more.”
