  1. Ukraine

We can, we should and we will pray for peace and for those affected.

There are many other groups and organisations that are raising funds and I know many of you have already given generously. Thank you.  If you haven’t yet, or want to give again, StAB will pass on anything put in the offering plate that is clearly marked UKRAINE.
