Welcome to Saint John the Evangelist Parish



A Prayer for Peace in Ukraine

O loving and merciful Father, we are Your people, and we are asking for

the prayers of Your Most Holy Mother and the intercession of St. Olga, patroness of Ukraine.

We pray urgently for peace upon the Ukrainian people.

Send your Spirit of wisdom upon our world leaders.

Send your Spirit of compassion upon those who bear arms.

Send your Spirit of healing upon those who are injured.

Send your Spirit of welcome upon those who are killed in this act of war.

Send your Spirit of consolation on those who have lost loved ones.

Send your Spirit of protection on those who have lost their homes.

Send your Spirit of hospitality upon all nations.

Send your Spirit of renewed hope upon your world.

May we live into your vision of a future of justice and peace, through Christ our Lord.
