Supporting the request of the ASSUM Provincial, Fr. Łukasz Andrzejewski and Pope Francis to hope for the cessation of hostilities and pray for peace in Ukraine, I invite all members of the Passionist Family, individually and communally, to observe a DAY OF FASTING AND PRAYER FOR PEACE on 2nd March 2022.
From Fr. Joachim Rego:
"The serious situation of the invasion of Ukraine by Russia today creates great anxiety and concern for our brothers in the ASSUM Province of Poland who have responsibility for the Passionist presence and mission in Ukraine. We express our fra-ternal solidarity with the four Passionist religious: 3 Ukrainian nationals and 1 Polish national, who minister in the town of Smotrych and surrounding areas in Western Ukraine and are most immediately affected by this crisis."
