San Francisco, Calif., Mar 30, 2021 / 06:01 pm (CNA).- The Archbishop of San Francisco on Tuesday urged an end to violence against Asian people in the city and across the US, and announced a prayer service for peace.

“The rise in violence against Asian people across the country is alarming and horrific to all people of right reason,” Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone wrote in a March 30 statement.

The number of attacks on Asian Americans in the United States has reportedly increased over the last year. A series of shootings at three Atlanta-area massage parlors earlier this month killed six women of Asian descent.
