Since the Catholic Church massacre in Nigeria on Pentecost Sunday, no group has claimed responsibility.

Gunmen stormed into St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Owo, Nigeria and opened fire on parishioners during Mass. At least 38 people were killed in the attack, including children. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) sent a letter of solidarity to the president of the Nigerian Conference of Bishops.

“In addition to the horrible loss of life, this attack is a disturbing development as it occurred in the far south of Nigeria where such bloodshed heretofore has been largely unknown.

Ed Clancy, Outreach Director from Aid to the Church In Need, joined Currents News to discuss the horrific event and how to help.
