Message from Bishop Stephen D. Parkes, Diocese of Savannah:
October 14, 2023
Saturday of the Twenty-seventh Week in Ordinary Time
As you are well aware, the crisis in the Middle East is escalating. The Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, +Pierbattista Cardinal Pizzaballa, has called for a day of Prayer and Fasting on Tuesday, October 17. This is a link to his website which includes more information: https://www.lpj.org/posts/a-day-of-fasting-and-prayer.html . Below is a graphic from the USCCB social media page as well. Thank you for sharing this information as you deem appropriate for your parish community. As there are multiple crises taking place on the world stage at this time, we pray for an end to injustices and also for peaceful resolutions to all of these situations.
