Priest Brutally Beaten but Expected to Recover

A Phoenix Priest was badly beaten in a attack. The attack killed another clergyman. The attack happened at a Roman Catholic Church in the downtown Phoenix area. According to the church officials, luckily the Priest is expected to make a full recovery.

According to a visiting pastor from San Diego (Rev. Carl Gismondi) The Reverend, Joseph Terra has been moved out of the hospital’s intensive care unit on Saturday night but will still need some time to recuperate after the attack that happened last Wednesday night.

Gismondi led the Sunday Morning Mass had recently visited the fifty-six year old, Rev. Terra at the hospital.

Gismondi’s statement about the Priest’s condition

He was in good spirits.

Police were very worried at first that Rev. Terra wouldn’t survive his severe injuries.

More than one hundred parishioners at the Mother of Mercy Mission had gathered to mourn the twenty-eight year old Rev. Kenneth Walker. Rev. Walker was shot to death by a suspect that the Police are still looking for.

Police Are Searching for Suspect who Shot the Priest

Police are searching for a white male between the ages of 40 and 49 years old. Investigators have been analyzing forensic evidence from the crime scene and Walker’s car. But with few leads, they have gone door to door looking for witnesses.

Gismondi asked for prayers for Terra’s recovery, Rev. Walker, and the unknown suspect. Even though everyone wants to see the man brought to justice, the Catholic believe that you should “pray for those who cause harm”.

A Visitor from Text, Marisa Martinez Talks about the Traci Shooting

It was definitely very real when you come here and see the flowers and the policeman out in front. To hear of anyone being murdered, especially a priest, it is very tragic.

One of the regulars said that her two children adored Rev. Walker.
