An interfaith Prayer gathering to pray for peace in our world and in particular for a ceasefire in Gaza was held in St Vincent’s GAA Knocknaheeny on Sunday, 12th November.
At the request of Bishop Paul Colton, who was unable to attend, the Rev. Tony Murphy and the Rev. Canon Elaine Murray were present. Prayers for peace and hope were offered including some heart felt prayers written by local children who expressed their horror at what they are seeing daily on their TV screens since October 7th. Organisers Caitriona Twomey (Cork Penny Dinners) and Fahmeda Naheed (Cork Three Faiths Forum) and all those gathered feel strongly that these interfaith events were very much needed at this time in order to build a bridge of peace and love so that wars may cease.
