Together with Pope Francis, we fervently pray for an end to the conflict in Ukraine and for all those who have become victims of such senseless violence.

We continue to be shocked at the horrific loss of life and destruction and appalled at the humanitarian catastrophe which is unfolding before us. We encourage Scotland’s Catholics and all people of good will to open their arms to the refugees from Ukraine. Donations can be made to the SCIAF Ukraine Appeal which will go towards Caritas Internationalis’ response both in Ukraine and in neighboring countries
