Catholic bishop will preside at Tucson commemoration
In the wake of the recent shootings in Tucson, Arizona, which left six dead and 14 wounded, religious leaders from around the country are lending their voices to prayer.
Tucson's Catholic bishop, Gerald Kicanas, is set to preside at a public ceremony that will attempt to start the healing process following the shootings, even as shooting victims are being readied for funeral services.
Among those slain in the Tucson shootings were Judge John Roll, 63, and Christina Taylor Green, 9.
