Praying for Ukraine

Dear Clergy, Parishioners and friends of False Bay Diocese,

With careless courage, we join our prayers for peace in the devastating situation in the Ukraine.
We pray for an end to war, violence,, hunger and misery.

I call upon our members to make this Sunday and Ash Wednesday a day for prayer for Ukraine, Russia and for peace. For those who can, let us observe a day of fasting on Ash Wednesday.

Be kind to one another in these brittle days.

Love, Prayers and Blessings, +Margaret
