Vigil for Peace

294 Views

The refugee crisis in Europe has escalated to a very worrying degree that we can no longer ignore it. Many of us were at a loss when thinking how to respond. Recently we encouraged everyone to pray for the refugees, trusting that our prayer is effective even when we do not know its direct fruit. In this way we welcome people in need into our hearts, as we offer their need to God in prayer.

The Church’s Ministry of Healing: Ireland was looking for ways to further our call to prayer and so we decided to organise a Vigil for Peace. We would like to invite you all to join us.

The Vigil will take place on Thursday 8th October 2015 in the Nave Chapel, Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin. It will start at 10am with Morning Prayer and conclude with Choral Evensong at 6pm. Various contributors will give prayerful reflections on the hour. The schedule is as follows:

10.00 Morning Prayer
11.00 Linda Chambers from the United Society
12.00 Carmelite Friars (OCD) from Clarendon Street
12.45 The Eucharist with prayers for healing. The celebrant is the Very Rev Dermot Dunne, Dean of Christ Church Cathedral
14.00 Lydia Monds from the Bishops’ Appeal
15.00 Greg Fromholz on the experience of refugee camps in Lebanon
16.00 Church’s Ministry of Healing: Ireland
17.00 Stephen Collins from the Irish Refugee Council
18.00 Choral Evensong, Emma Lynch from Tearfund Ireland 

You will be welcome to light a candle and say a prayer all throughout the day.
There will be opportunity to donate to the Bishops’ Appeal. Donations will continue to be directed to the needs of 12.2 million people in Syria and 4 million refugees in neighbouring Iraq and Lebanon as well as to NGOs and community initiatives responding to the needs in EU countries.

We hope you will join us in this day of prayer for peace and the refugees.
All are welcome to attend.
