Cardinal Vincent Nichols has stressed that prayers must continue after more than 100 days of fighting in the Gaza Israel war. Our prayers are not futile and they must continue, not only for peace in the wider Middle East but also in Ukraine and all other areas riven by conflict.
The local Church tells us that the parish of the Holy Family in Gaza continues to be a place of safety for over 600 people, including over 50 severely disabled and very vulnerable children. They need our prayers and practical financial help. There is still an opportunity to support this appeal financially. Donations can be placed in the collection box provided in the Holy Souls Chapel. Your contributions will be sent to the Latin Patriarch, who has created structures to provide food and any assistance needed by many in the West Bank.
Thank you for your generosity.
