The Irish Bishops have asked for a Special Collection to be taken up at Masses on the weekend of 26/27 March to support humanitarian efforts in Ukraine and especially the families and children who have had to flee their homeland in advance of the Russian invasion.
The proceeds of this Special Collection will be directed to Caritas Internationalis, which is the helping hand of the Church on the ground in the Ukraine and the surrounding region.
Please be as generous as you can. Thank you.
As the reality of war in the Ukraine deepens and innocent lives are threatened and lost, I invite the people of the Diocese and all people of good will to join me in praying for the people in Ukraine.
We stand in solidarity with all Ukrainian people living among us in the Diocese of Cork and Ross as well as with people from here who have made Ukraine their home. We pray for an end to war and a restoration of peace.
I ask that a prayer for peace and an end to war in Ukraine be included in the Prayer of the Faithful at Mass this weekend.
I also encourage you to take up Pope Francis invitation to make Ash Wednesday a day of prayer and fasting for peace in Ukraine.
Your sincerely in Christ

A new phrase has been coined during the pandemic namely the ‘hybrid church’
So what does this actually mean? It describes the growth of online platforms churches are using.
This has been particularly accelerated over the last two years as a response to the restrictions experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
