Prayer Service for Peace 

Today is February 12, 2021.  Every year on February 12, the people in Myanmar celebrate their Union Day.  However, this year’s commemoration is quite different as the country is in a political turmoil.  In solidarity with the people in Myanmar, the Columban Missionaries in the Philippines marked this day with a zoom prayer service for peace in Myanmar. The Columban students from Myanmar led a moving prayer service with a brief history about the country and the struggles that the people had to go through under the military rule for more than 50 years.  This was followed by songs, prayers and sharing of experiences.

The prayer service was attended by the Columban Missionaries – priests, lay, students and staff – in the Philippines, Myanmar and Ireland.
