Union Flag  Ukraine Flag

Thousands of people across mainland Europe, the United Kingdom and Ireland are opening their hearts and their homes so that refugees fleeing from the war in Ukraine can stay with them and find rest and peace.

This generosity demonstrates the words of Jesus Christ to his disciples as recorded in the New Testament and beautifully illustrated in a stained glass window which can be seen in a church in Warwickshire, England.

The text below each panel is from St Matthew's Gospel Chapter 25, verses 35-36

(For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink:

I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me:

I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.)

Our prayers must be for Peace:

A Prayer for Ukraine

seen at the Shrine of St Thomas Cantilupe

Hereford Cathedral:

Lord God,

whose compassion never fails:

comfort and support, we pray,

the people on whom

the terrors of invasion have fallen;


if their liberty be lost to the oppressor,

let not their spirit be broken,

but stayed upon your strength

until the day of deliverance;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Almighty and ever Loving God
in fellowship with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
the Prince of Peace
we pray that you will speak to the hearts and minds of
Russian and Ukrainian leaders and people
that as fellow Orthodox Christians
they will unite against the evil forces of division and domination
and recognise their common humanity;
rejecting the war and its consequences of death and misery
on both sides and re-establish the bonds of peace
which are the rights of all Russian and Ukrainian people.

In memoria aeterna erit iustus.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,
et lux perpetua luceat eis.

The just shall be in everlasting remembrance.
Grant them eternal rest, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon them,
