Statement by Bishop Burbidge and Bishop Knestout on the Passing of Congressman McEachin
We are saddened by the passing of U.S. Representative Donald McEachin and offer our condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. We join our prayers to theirs. Together with the Virginia Catholic Conference, we commemorate his public service in Congress and in the Virginia General Assembly and his work to improve the lives of the poor and marginalized in the communities he served.
In prayer and in public, your voices are urgently needed to bring Gospel values to bear on vital decisions being made by those who represent you.
The Virginia Catholic Conference is the public policy agency representing Virginia’s Catholic bishops and their two dioceses.
