A mass has been held for the Polish community living on the island of Jersey after six people were knifed to death at the weekend.Those killed included a mother and her two children who were originally from Poland, her father in law and two family friends.
A 30 year Polish man, said to be a member of the family, was arrested on suspicion of murder.
“We are all of course in great shock” says the Catholic Dean in Jersey, Monsignor Nicholas France.
Speaking to Lydia O’Kane he added, “In our church we have a shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa who is Queen of the Polish nation and I said just as people run to their mother in a time of crisis or trouble so I hope they will go to Mary the Mother of God."
A mass to remember those who died is scheduled to take place on Thursday at St Thomas’s Catholic church on the island. Listen
