WOODSTOCK, Va. (WHSV) - The community is invited to a short ecumenical prayer service for Ukraine, the Ukrainian people, and peace to be held at noon Thursday, March 31, 2022, at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, 122 East Court St., Woodstock, VA.

Church leaders say their hearts are broken by the scenes of suffering and devastation from the Russian invasion of Ukraine. This humanitarian crisis touches everyone, and they are calling on the community—across all faith traditions—to join 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.

The plan is 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 3 p.m. for anyone who wishes to come and offer their prayers.
