Saint Columba’s Church
Pray for Peace
Pope Francis recently called on all the faithful to"persevere in prayer for those situations of tension and conflict that continue in different parts of the world, especially in the Middle East and in the Ukraine"
Mass for Persecuted Christians
On Friday 8th August 2014, the 7.30pm Mass in St. Columba’s Church will be offered for peace in the Middle East and for persecuted Christians. This Mass provides an opportunity for parishioners to pray for an end to hatred and violence in Israel, Gaza, Syria and Iraq. A collection will be taken up at this Mass to support the work of Trócaire and their partners as they endeavour to bring assistance to the injured, bereaved and displaced in the region. All are welcome to attend.
