Invitation to Pray for Peace from fr. Gerard

Dear brothers and sisters:

As we begin the great season of Lent, the Master of the Order, fr. Gerard Timoner, OP, has issued a Lenten message asking us to continue to offer our prayer, fasting, and almsgiving for peace where there is war, unrest, and persecution, particularly for Ukraine, and to remember that we are part of a global Dominican Family.  He also invites us to pray the Litany of Dominican Saints at least once a week until the First Week of Easter.

In addition, the Polish Dominican friars are working to provide assistance to Ukrainian friars and refugees.  If you’d like to donate, you can donate funds through the Western Dominican Province, who will then transfer the funds to the Polish Dominican Province.  You can help by clicking here: https://opwest.org/ukraine

Grace to you and Peace,
– Mr. Alan Phipps, OP
– Lay Provincial Secretary, Province of St. Martin de Porres
