Statement on the Davao bombing

Filed under: Features,Statements |

Archdiocese of Davao

We, the local Church of Davao, are deeply saddened by the explosion that happened at the night market at Corner Padre Gomez Street, Roxas Avenue, Davao City in the evening of September 2, 2016.

We condole with the families of those who lost their lives even as we pray for the eternal repose of those who died in this most unfortunate incident.  May there be no more loss of lives among those who were injured and are currently in the hospitals.

We also pray for calmness among our people, and at the same time we ask everyone to be vigilant.  As Dabawenyos let us continue to care for one another as brothers and sisters.

For all the people of Davao City, let us continue to offer prayers to the Lord to grant us peace in our community and in our country.

May our Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Peace, continue to intercede for us.
