A prayer for Ukraine: Loving God,* We pray for the people of Ukraine,* for all those suffering or afraid,* that you will be close to them and protect them.*** We pray for world leaders,* for compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their choices.*** We pray for the world* that in this moment of crisis,* we may reach out in solidarity* to our brothers and sisters in need.*** May we walk in your ways* so that peace and justice* become a reality for the people of Ukraine* and for all the world.*** Amen.***

You are cordially invited to join Archbishop Leo Cushley for the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh's inaugural Lourdes Day.  The aim of the event is simple; to bring the spirit of Lourdes to the heart of our Archdiocese. We will begin with a Marian procession from the grounds of the Archbishop's residence  to St Margaret's Chapel, approximately a third of a mile away. We'll then conclude with Solemn Benediction followed a celebratory reception.


All are very welcome; priests, religious and laity. If you've never been to Lourdes before, this is a wonderful opportunity to sample the unique pilgrimage experience only it can offer. Ave Maria!
