French Priest Slain by Muslims One Step Closer to Sainthood (Church Militant)
"DETROIT ( - French priest Father Jacques Hamel, slain by two ISIS terrorists in the middle of saying Mass, is on track to being canonized. Hamel was murdered by two 19-year-olds on July 26, 2016, who slit his throat and took hostages before being gunned down by police. The murder of the 85-year-old priest took place in Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, Normandy, on July 26th, 2016.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack at the church in Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray, Normandy in the north of France.

Immediately following the attack, the French bishops chose to designate July 29 as a day of fasting.
