Statement in Response to the January 6th Mob Assault on the US Capitol

We, the Presentation Sisters - USA Unit, were horrified and heartbroken at the assault on the US Capitol while the members of Congress were exercising their Constitutional duty of confirming the results of a free and fair election. We are grateful to the members of Congress who, after the assault was contained, continued their task well into the early morning to ensure that the electoral college votes were certified and confirmed.

We mourn the needless loss of life and are desolated by the lack of accountability of those who hold positions of leadership. 

Today we add our voice to that of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious and many other people of good will in renewing our commitment to the common good and pledging to take up the challenge to use our energy to repair our democracy...
