The Bishop has asked all of us to pray daily for peace in the world and for a greater collaboration between the various nations. He has put forth the following prayer, on behalf of the Conference of Bishops, for use in the parishes and the chaplaincies of the diocese.

"Let us pray, through the intercession of Mary Queen of Peace,
for peace on earth and an end to violence and terrorism in our world,
for a new spirit of trust and collaboration between nations,
for the gift of wisdom for our politicians and leaders,
and for the resolution of long-standing conflicts in Syria, Gaza and the Ukraine,
and in other countries around the world."
