January 02, 2009

The following is from Rev. George Wilkinson, pastor of Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in College Park, MD, following today’s arrest in the Christmas Eve beating of a parishioner in the parking lot of the church:

“The parish community is grateful to the Prince George’s County police for their commitment and their tireless efforts to finding the individual responsible for this terrible incident. We also thank everyone in the community who has offered prayers and support for Mr. Williams, his family and our parish family. These prayers have been a tremendous source of comfort as Mr. Williams heals. May we continue to remember in prayer everyone who was involved this incident and may we pray for an end to violence.”
