Mourners attended a Mass for Tuesday’s Texas school shooting victims.

San Antonio Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller celebrated an 8 p.m. Mass at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Uvalde for the community and for the people who have been impacted directly. Uvalde is 85 miles west of San Antonio.

“I don’t know what to make of all of this,” Archbishop García-Siller told The Tablet. “It’s horrible news in the middle of the pandemic, the war, social unrest, the division, the political debates that are fragmenting more and more of our society and something like this is wounding people’s lives in a very profound way.”

The students were scheduled to celebrate their last day of the school year on Thursday.
