Pope announces special collection for Ukraine

April 04, 2016

At the conclusion of Divine Mercy Sunday Mass in St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis prayed the Regina Caeli and announced a special collection in all European parishes on April 24 to assist those in need in Ukraine.

“I am thinking of the ordeal of those who suffer the consequences of the violence in Ukraine: of those who continue to live in lands that are turned upside down by hostilities that have caused thousands of deaths, and of those-- over a million-- who have been forced to leave due to the grave situation that persists,” he said.
