Atlanta Bishop calls for prayer over school shooting

Posted: Updated:

Members of the Episcopal Cathedral of St. Philips paused for a moment Saturday to remember the victim of the shooting in Connecticut.

Atlanta Bishop Robert Wright said turning to faith in the wake of the tragedy will help the nation heal.

Those in attendance at a scheduled ordination service said it brought comfort to hear the bishop address the shooting Newtown.

The bishop called on those with heavy hearts over the school shooting to pray not only for the victims and survivors, but also the gunman.

A number of other smaller vigils have been held around the Atlanta area over the weekend.
