The Ukraine Flag is flying on our tower today and all our services, beginning with Morning Prayer and our 8am Eucharist, have special prayers for peace in Ukraine and across God’s world.

Our local Ukrainian friends also took the opportunity to gather here to share food and fellowship with us.

Dean Jo said:

"On this Ukraine Independence Day we join our prayers with people across the world to pray for peace. We also renew our commitment to support our friends from Ukraine who have made their home among us and with them to work for a world where all know peace."

Artist in Residence Ant Steel celebrated the Independence Day of Ukraine with local Ukrainian groups from the community at the Cathedral painting a wall about peace, love and hope for Ukraine.
