Statement by the Right Reverend Thomas Bryant, Bishop of the Diocese of the Eastern United States of the Independent Old Catholic Church

In the early morning hours, the military forces of Russia unleashed an unprovoked and unjustified attack on the people of Ukraine. This act of aggression is an act of evil and I join my voice with those of other religious leaders in calls for peace and for the people of Ukraine and Russia.

I am inviting Christians to join in prayer this Sunday for the people of Ukraine and for peace in our world.

As we prepare to enter the season of Lent, I support the call of Pope Francis to a Global Day of Prayer and Fasting for Peace on Ash Wednesday, March 2nd.

St. George, protector and patron of the Ukrainian people, pray for us.
