NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) - Church leaders in Newtown are receiving standing ovations from parishioners they are helping to cope with the massacre at an elementary school.

Monsignor Robert Weiss of the St. Rose of Lima Roman Catholic church received applause at Sunday Mass and said he is grateful to everyone in the community for giving him strength to get through the week. Eight of the children and two of the adults killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School belonged to his church.

Weiss said it was the hardest week of his life.

The Rev. Kathleen Adams-Shepherd at Trinity Episcopal Church also received an ovation and kisses from a long line of parishioners. She offered a prayer for the 26 victims at the school as well as the gunman and his slain mother.
