A prayer for peace in Ukraine

Development and Peace appeals and prays for peace in Ukraine and calls the faithful to stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian people. As an organization committed to justice and peace, we strongly condemn all acts of military aggression.

In a video message posted on the morning Russian troops attacked, Tetiana Stawnychy, president of Caritas Ukraine, said "It's hard to believe in the 21st century that we were waking up to the sounds of explosions and of air raid sirens...."

In the coming days, large numbers of people will likely end up displaced, needing help with meeting their basic needs. We have therefore made an immediate allocation of $75,000 to help with the provision of food, shelter, medical care and transport to safe locations. In addition, we ask for your solidarity and support to help us respond to the needs on the ground.

Last but not least, thank you for joining us in praying for peace.

Dear Friend --

Families Supporting Loved Ones Virtual Meeting

Many of us are supporting our loved ones who are survivors of sexual abuse. Often we do not know how to help them through the pain and we don’t know how to help ourselves either. You are not alone. Families of victims are survivors too. We need to learn coping tools and what our triggers are. We need to learn how to heal ourselves and how to help our loved ones and our family. We need to learn to let go of the guilt, shame and overwhelm. We are here to help you. Come forward and listen, share, and learn ways others are coping and healing.

Meetings every 2nd Wednesday of the Month

Time: 6:00-7:30 pm Pacific Time

All participants must be interviewed by the moderator prior to participation in this group. Virtual log-in information is not publicly available.
