We want as a body of prayer and solidarity with the pain of the world to respond to this invitation of Pope Francis: “Facing the tragic continuation of conflicts in different parts of the world, I invite all the faithful to a special day of prayer and fasting for peace February 23.  He asked that the day be offered specifically for the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan and invited both non-Catholics and non-Christians to join “in the ways they deem most appropriate”.

Some material to be used: Fast and prayer 23 february
