Dear Friends, We are approaching the anniversary of the Sandy Hook tragedy. Since that event, it is estimated that approximately 600,000 people in our country have been killed or injured by guns. It seems to me most every night on the local news, I hear of some gun violence event here in San Antonio!  Next week there will be an EndGunViolence Vigil.  It's happening at 7 p.m. on Dec. 13 at the Chapel of the Incarnate Word, located at 4503 Broadway St. Thanks, Sister JT
