Bishop Provost has issued the following statement on the War in Ukraine:

The news from Ukraine has disturbed us all.  We must join our prayers to people of good will throughout the world for peace in that troubled land, torn by aggression and facing destruction.   As we have entered the holy Season of Lent, may our forty days of prayer with the Lord in the desert raise up to the mercy of our Heavenly Father the casualties of war, the separation of families, the needless destruction of property, the settlement of refugees, and the suffering of the innocent.   Mary, Mother of Peace, pray for us.   Lord, grant our world leaders the wisdom and courage necessary to face these challenges.  May God preserve us from war and keep us in peace.
