He extended his deepest condolences on behalf of the University of Notre Dame.
He said that learning of their loss was shocking, but they will be thought of during Sunday's prayers.
“Alana, whose grandfather Rev. Daniel Simmons was killed, said, 'Hate won't win.' It will not, with faithful people like you. We stand with you in sadness but hope in the love of Christ. We will ask that God give your some peace and consolation, but we will also pray in gratitude for the witness you have given everyone. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for that," wrote Jenkins.
