Our response

In answer to the Holy Father's call for a day of fasting and prayer for peace in Syria and the Middle East, there will be a prayer vigil at St Wilfrid's on Saturday evening, September 7th from 7pm-8pm.
Please come for as much of this as you are able.

Please make this as widely known as you possibly can - invite people from St Wilfrid's Community and anyone else who longs for peace.

Let us ask Mary to help us to respond to violence, to conflict and to war, with the power of dialogue, reconciliation and love. She is our mother: may she help us to find peace; all of us are her children! Help us, Mary, to overcome this most difficult moment and to dedicate ourselves each day to building in every situation an authentic culture of encounter and peace.
