The Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Claudio Gugerotti, has written to ask every local parish to unite themselves with Pope Francis on the Solemnity of the Annunciation, Friday 25 March 2022 at 4.00pm local time. The Pope will be leading a worldwide Act of Consecration of Russia and Ukraine to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the light of this terrible war and suffering. Please join in if you can. We feel so helpless when we see the suffering and devastation in Ukraine. Through this Consecration, we have the opportunity to do something together on Friday at 4.00pm in Saint Bride’s Church, West Kilbride and Saint Peter in Chains Church, Ardrossan. Mary, Queen of peace, pray for us!
