UPDATE: Rabbi Bisno of Rodef Shalom joined the Central Catholic High School community for a school-wide prayer service Wednesday morning November 7th, to honor and remember the victims of the October 27th Tree of Life tragedy. During the Pittsburgh school’s service, students spoke about each victim, and lit a candle for each of them in their memory.


As one Lasallian family, let us continue to pray for peace in our world especially for the innocent victims of the violence in Pittsburgh, at the Tree of Life synagogue. Together as a human family we pray for the 11 who lost their lives living out their faith, and for those who are still recovering, may they find peace in God’s loving presence.



“…all of us are wounded by this inhuman act of violence.” May God “help us to extinguish the flames of hatred that develop in our societies.” -Pope Francis

“In the end, the only response is to do good – for no matter what the darkness, it will never overcome the light.” -USCCB
