Christ Church Cathedral Mourns Loss of Aaron Bailey

The Christ Church Cathedral family and many in the city of Indianapolis are mourning the death of Aaron Bailey, shot and killed by IMPD officers after fleeing a traffic stop. He was unarmed. Aaron’s criminal history has been shared widely. Yet, Aaron was more than his record. He is a beloved child of God. He was a member of a community of recovery. He was a runner. He was a father and a friend. And to Christ Church Cathedral he was a neighbor, a guest, and a volunteer.

Aaron volunteered all day at the Strawberry Festival this year. He attended the cathedral’s Sunday breakfast for several months. He ran with members in the group, Back on My Feet. Many people mourn his death and are deeply troubled that another unarmed black man has been shot—this time in Indianapolis.

Please join the cathedral and the city of Indianapolis in continuing to pray for his family and the whole community.

May Aaron’s soul, and the souls of all the departed rest in peace. #AaronBailey.
