Our parish will pray in a special way at all our Masses this weekend for the people of the Ukraine. Our Mass Collection on this weekend will help to give practical support for families and individuals caught up in this awful war.
Protector God, we pray for the people of Ukraine, for all those suffering or afraid, that you will be close to them and give them your protection. We pray for our world leaders, for compassion, strength and wisdom to guide them in their decisions. We pray for our world that in this moment of real crisis, we may reach out in support and solidarity to our sisters and brothers in need. Lord, may we walk in your ways for the people of Ukraine and for all the world. Amen.
