Join in a Prayer for Peace and for Solidarity with the People of Ukraine

Pope Francis is calling for a day of prayer and fasting on Ash Wednesday, March 2nd for peace in Ukraine. Let us join with Pope Francis in calling for peace. 

A Prayer for Peace and Solidarity:

Holy One, in whom we live and move and have our being, 

We pray for protection for the people of Ukraine.

We pray for all who have died, and for all who have been injured. 

We pray for all who have fled their homeland. 

We pray for all the children, elders and vulnerable Ukrainians who have lost everything. 

We pray for President Zelenskyy and for President Putin.

We pray for world leaders who are working with them for a just and lasting peace.

We pray that love will overcome hatred and division.

We pray that we may do all we can to help them.
