Archdiocese of San Antonio in solidarity with First Baptist Church of New Braunfels

Statement from Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller, MSpS

The faithful of the Archdiocese of San Antonio, including me and Auxiliary Bishop Michael Boulette, offer our most heartfelt prayers to the families of First Baptist Church of New Braunfels as you mourn the tragic deaths yesterday of 13 senior members of the congregation who were returning home from a spirit-filled retreat at the Alto Frio Baptist Encampment in Leakey.

Especially, our Catholic parishes of New Braunfels -- Sts. Peter and Paul, Holy Family, and Our Lady of Perpetual Help -- are with you spiritually as you minister to the many families coping with this incomprehensible loss of life.

Please know, brothers and sisters, you are in our thoughts in a powerful way at this time, as well as in the days, weeks and months ahead.
