Prayer for Peace in Ukraine

The Community of Sant’Egidio is having a prayer vigil for peace in Ukraine tomorrow evening (Friday, February 25), at 6:30 p.m., in the Church of the Epiphany, in unity with all the countries in which it is present in the world.

It is our first, spontaneous response to the tragedy that is unfolding in these hours in Ukraine. We cannot resign ourselves to war as the last word, but we must unceasingly ask for peace. This is what we implore for the sake of Ukraine and the whole world, addressing everyone, starting with those who have responsibility for nations.

We invite everyone to join us in stopping the folly of resorting to arms.
