5th Anniversary of Abduction – We Continue to Pray

On Saturday 21st April it will be 5 years since the tragic abduction by terrorists of their Emminences Metropolitan Paul and Archbishop John, both of Aleppo in Syria.

The Church never ceases to pray for these honourable and courageous men who were on a peace mission when their car was attacked.

We pray for forgiveness of their malefactors and for the bishops’ safe return to their families and the Church.  Lord have mercy!
