BROOKLYN - The aftermath of the deadly Connecticut school shooting that left 20 children and six teachers dead brought many Brooklyn families to church this morning for Sunday services.

Father Edward Doran, of St. Charles Borromeo Church, told his congregation that they had the power to overcome evil in the world and talked about the danger of anger and resentment.

"I feel if we embrace the gospel message of Jesus and live it fully as best we can, we can begin the process of change," said Doran.

One Brooklyn resident says that her faith has kept her grounded since the events in Newtown, Conn. and that everyone needs to come together regardless of religion or faith.
