The Irish Redemptorists like so many other citizens and groups are deeply perplexed by the unfolding tragedy being inflicted on the Ukrainian population as the Ukraine courageously defends itself from an inexplicable war unleashed by Russia.
The Redemptorists in the Ukraine are immersed in local communities and have opened their houses and churches as sanctuaries for displaced families crippled with fear and anxiety.
Present in Tschernihiv in the north of Ukraine and Berdyansk, in the east of Ukraine, and Lviv as well in several locations close the Polish border, the Redemptorists, are offering shelter, food, and medical support. At border points with Poland, Redemptorists in the Ukraine and parishioners are offering nourishment both physical and spiritual as families seek refuge in neighbouring countries.
The Redemptorists in Poland have established a humanitarian corridor to help deliver emergency supplies and funds. The Redemptorist Provincial in Poland is playing a leadership role in a coordinated approach to welcoming Ukrainian families as they flee the war, helping them towards shelter, food, and integrated support. In Slovakia, the Redemptorists have made their monastery in Kostlna available to host fleeing families who will cross from Ukraine to Slovakia.
The Redemptorists are appealing for financial support. If you would like to support our Solidarity with Ukraine campaign, please donate online at:
