Archdiocese of Indianapolis statement on Greenwood Park Mall shooting

We offer our heartfelt prayers for those affected by the July 17 shooting at Greenwood Park Mall.

We share in the grief of our brothers and sisters impacted by this crime, and again ask that we unite in our common humanity to stop the massacres of innocent lives caused by gun violence.

We are convinced that, as a society, there must be respectful dialogue, followed by concrete action, to create a broader social awareness of all aspects of this increasingly horrifying crisis, including mental health, family life, the dignity of human life, the influence of entertainment and gaming industries, bullying, and the availability of firearms. Among the many steps toward addressing this endemic of violence is the necessity of passing reasonable, effective gun control measures.
