A Word From Bishop Medley

Let us continue to pray and sacrifice for peace in our world

In anticipation of Ash Wednesday this year, Pope Francis called upon Catholics of the world to observe the traditional prayer, fasting and charity of this day for a special intention.

War and violence of this scale had not been seen on the continent of Europe since the end of World War II.
