Please join an interfaith gathering of many parishes and faith congregations from around the city to pray for peace in Ukraine and learn more about the events unfolding there. 
      Robert Herring, President of the Cincinnati USA Sister City Association (CINUSCA), will be the guest speaker at this event. Bob has been working with the Cincinnati-Kharkiv Sister City Partnership (CKSCP) since the mid-1990s and has traveled to Ukraine five times. As the longtime principal of Nativity School in Pleasant Ridge, he also coordinated exchange groups with many countries, including Ukraine, for its international program. He is currently Director of the International Baccalaureate Program and Global Programs at Purcell Marian High School. His presentation will feature information about Ukraine as a country, its history, its people, its culture and its current crisis. A question and answer period will be included.
      The event is free and open to the public. It will take place in the church, with parking adjacent to the church at Madison Rd. and Woodburn Ave. and behind the church in the Purcell Marian High School parking lot. Refreshments will be provided. Donations will be accepted to support the Ukrainian people and will be personally channeled through the Cincinnati-Kharkiv Sister City Partnership (CKSCP) where members are aiding Ukrainian refugees. There will be lists of other organizations also accepting donations for Ukraine.
        Music during the gathering time and the National Anthem of Ukraine will be provided by a string ensemble featuring our own Sophie Krumm and several friends from Walnut Hills High School.
       We hope you are able to join us. All are welcome!
