Youth Group Offers Prayers & Condolences to NYPD

Our Lady of Grace Youth Group offered condolences to the New York City Police Department as they mourn the passing of Detective Brian Simonsen who was assigned to the nearby 102nd Precinct and where the uncle of one of our Youth Group members is also assigned.  The Youth Group has forged connections with the 106th Precinct by accepting invitations from the Precinct to speak to them about bullying and safety issues.

With the help of leader Tish McGuigan, they designed cards for both precincts. The inside reads:

Our Lady of Grace
Youth Group
Howard Beach
And Our Entire Parish Community
Offer Our Prayers and Condolences
On the Passing of
Detective Brian Simonsen
And All Those of the NYPD
Affected by This Tragedy   

They also placed personal messages inside the hearts.
