Texas church to hold prayer service one week after mass shooting

Half their congregation is dead, and their house of worship is a bullet-riddled mess, but members of a Texas church targeted in a merciless mass shooting will open its spiritual doors Sunday.

Parishioners at Sutherland Springs’ First Baptist Church will sing songs, lift prayers and share testimony at a community center next door to the tiny white church where 26 people were killed and 20 more were wounded in a Sunday morning massacre.

The service will be held with help from pastors of nearby churches, a payback of sorts for First Baptist’s history or charitable community service including cleaning up neighbors’ property after devastating storms.

“They don’t have a lot of money,” Mike Clements, a pastor at a nearby church, told CNN.

“But they are always willing to give.”

Frank Pomeroy, First Baptist’s pastor, is scheduled to speak.

He killed them at their Co Cavan home before taking his own life on August 29 last year.

A friend of Clodagh’s family said tonight’s service brought the family more pain, adding: “Clodagh, Liam, Niall and Ryan deserve to be remembered, not him.

“The family are incredibly distressed by this service.”

Meanwhile, Clodagh’s relatives are raising funds for Cavan Lighthouse, to be a family aid refuge, here.
