Archbishops renew appeal for prayers for peace in the Middle East


A statement from Archbishop John McDowell and Archbishop Michael Jackson, issued on Sunday, 14th April 2024:

‘We renew our call for members of the Church of Ireland to pray that peace will prevail and humanitarian aid will reach all who suffer at this time.

Every human life has intrinsic value through its creation in the image of God.  Our brothers and sisters in the Anglican Diocese of Jerusalem continue, with great courage, to welcome and help people in need – regardless of their faith or background – in Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria and Jordan, through its hospitals, schools, clinics and rehabilitation centres.

We also remember in prayer all from our island who serve the cause of peace in the region and those whom they keep safe.’
