For all those affected by the pandemic, the sick and the suffering, the anxious and the fearful, and for those who have lost loved ones that may they see their sufferings and struggles lifted up and redeemed by the cross of Christ…

For healthcare professionals and service personnel, for those who work in essential jobs and those who work to provide for our needs may they be kept safe from harm and know of our gratitude for the work that they do…
