Woodstock, VA—The community is invited to a short ecumenical prayer service for Ukraine, the Ukrainian people, and peace—to be held at noon on Thursday, March 31, 2022, at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, 122 East Court St., Woodstock, VA.
Our hearts are broken by the scenes of suffering and devastation from the Russian invasion of Ukraine. This humanitarian crisis touches us all, and we call on our community—across all faith traditions—to join us in raising our voices in prayer on behalf of these brave people. The optional collection will be divided between the World Central Kitchen and the ERD Ukraine Crisis Response Fund.
We plan to gather outside in the church parking lot, but in the case of inclement weather, it will be held inside. The church will also remain open for silent prayer after the service until 3pm for anyone who wishes to come and offer their prayers.
PARKING in the town lot south of the church or on the street.
