Litany of the Dominican Saints for Peace

“Even now,” declares the Lord,  “return to me with all your heart,

    with fasting and weeping and mourning.…

sound the trumpet, declare a holy fast… gather the people”

Joel 2:12, 15

The Master of the Order has published a letter for Ash Wednesday, asking us to pray the Litany for Peace during Lent.

A group of Lay Dominicans will join together online to pray this Litany at 1pm on Fridays of Lent. If you are interested in taking part in this, please email Catherine Wallis-Hughes: catherinewallishughes@gmail.com to receive the Zoom link.
