Archbishop John Wester of Santa Fe is offering a Novena (9 days) of prayer focused on peace, not only in Ukraine but throughout our world. Archbishop is leading days one and nine, and other people throughout New Mexico will be hosting the other seven days.
Each day’s intention will be said in English, Spanish, and Ukrainian, and each day will end with St. Francis’ Peace Prayer in Ukrainian. Fr. Román Fihas, a Ukrainian Greek Catholic priest and coordinator of the English-language Distance Learning Master’s Program in Ecumenical Studies at the Ukrainian Catholic University, will join us from Ukraine and lead the Ukrainian intentions and prayer. It began on March 14, but you can take part through the YouTube recordings at your own pace.
