Special Collection for Humanitarian Aid in Ukraine will be held in all the Churches in the country on March 27th. Envelopes for the collection are available at the back of Holy Rosary and Ballintotis.
As I type this there are over 3 million Ukrainians who have had to flee their home. Figures for those killed are unsure. The humanitarian needs of the country grow daily as Russia continues to bomb indiscriminately hitting hospitals, schools, playgrounds, residential areas, electricity stations and various other utilities that are necessary for maintaining a basic way of life. We pray that the incredible resilience and bravery being shown in that country will inspire the whole world to search for peace and justice not only in Ukraine but throughout the world.
