Our Prayers and Deepest Condolences

Our prayers and deepest condolences go out to the family of Lisa Lopez-Galvan. We are surrounding her family with our love and support. She was a beloved member of our faith community. Our prayers and deepest sympathies are with her family during this sorrowful time. We take comfort in knowing that the resurrection of our Lord is our consolation and are grateful for His promise of eternal life. We pray for the repose of her soul and healing, peace, and strength for her loved ones and our community.

As we continue to process the details of the tragic shooting that concluded what had been a unifying celebration for our city, let us now remain united in prayer for healing, both physically and mentally, for the victims, their families, and all who are understandably shaken by the heartbreaking event near Union Station.

We express gratitude for the swift actions of first responders and emergency personnel. May God guide the minds and hands of the medical professionals providing aid to the wounded. We humbly seek the Lord’s grace for the healing of all those who were impacted by this tragic event and we pray for peace and unity to envelope the Kansas City community during this difficult time.
