Novena for Syria

The 7th April 2018 marks the 4th anniversary of the martyrdom of Fr Frans van der Lugt SJ, assassinated outside the Jesuit Community house in Homs. In July it will also be five years since Fr Paolo dall'Oglio SJ was kidnapped - since then, there has been no news of him.

Together with Aid to the Church in Need, the Jesuits in Britain are praying a Novena for Syria - based at Farm Street Church and available online - to remember Fr Frans and all the victims in the Middle East, and to pray for the release of Fr Paolo.
