Archbishop Thomas Wenski issued the following statement regarding the partial collapse of the Surfside condominium on June 24, 2021.
We all woke up this morning learning about the tragic news of the partial collapse of a 12-story condominium in Surfside. Search and rescue teams continue to sift through the rubble to find survivors and to recover the bodies of those who did not. Our hearts go out to all those affected by the tragedy.
Our Catholic Charities and local clergy have joined with other voluntary agencies and faith leaders to assist in whatever way they can.
We also pledge our prayers for the victims, their families, and first responders.
May the Lord give them strength.
