Hundreds attend slain rector’s first death anniversary.
Bangalore: More than 600 people Monday congregated for Mass at St. Peter’s Seminary in Bangalore to mark the first death anniversary of its rector, Father K J Thomas.
“We are disturbed even after one year over the death of Father K J Thomas and still keep asking why such a cruel death. Why it happened in the seminary, particularly?” Bishop Singaroyan of Salem asked during the homily.
The prelate of the Tamil Nadu diocese said the Church and others are groping for answers even after one year of the death.
Fr K.J. Thomas was found murdered with multiple head injuries on April 1, 2013. He belonged to Ooty diocese.
Bangalore police on March 21 announced that they had arrested two priests and a layman in connection with the murder.
However, several groups remain skeptical about their involvement and demand further probe into the case.
