Lisa Johnston | email@example.com | Twitter: @aeternusphoto Michael Brown was apparently unarmed when a Ferguson police officer shot and killed the 18-year-old on Saturday, Aug. 9. Protest continued on the seventh day after the shooting in the Ferguson neighborhoods surrounding the apartment complex where the shooting occurred. Because of the unrest in Ferguson, Mo. Gov. Jay Nixon had declared a state of emergency and ordered a curfew for the city. Father Steve Robeson from St. John in Imperial was stopped by a former parishioner from his time as pastor at St. Simon of Cyrene. Angela Boone has not been back to Church since Father held a funeral service for her mother, the last funeral at St. Simon’s before it was closed in 2005. The recent events in Ferguson have had an effect on Boone who is considering visiting Blessed Teresa of Calcutta parish’s rosary next week.
