Bishop David A. Konderla of Tulsa celebrated a memorial Mass at St. Francis Hospital Thursday following a mass shooting on the hospital’s campus in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
“Today we gather to comfort one another and to support one another in prayer as a family, even as we have some of the family members of the deceased here with us,” Konderla said at the June 2 Mass for the St. Francis Health System and those affected by the shooting.
Tulsa police confirmed five casualties of the shooting, including the shooter, which took place June 1 at the Natalie Building, on the south side of the hospital’s campus.
The Prayer of the Faithful during Mass remembered the four deceased: Dr. Preston Phillips, Dr. Stephanie Husen, Amanda Glenn, and William Love. The gunman targeted Phillips as the surgeon whom he blamed for ongoing pain after a back surgery.
