Special Intercession for April 23/24

On April 24, Armenians all over the world will celebrate a day of remembrance for the 90th anniversary of the terrible atrocities and massacres of Armenians in 1915, during which 1.5 million Armenian Christians were killed.

Bishop Patrick J. McGrath asks that all parishes remember this anniversary by including the following intercession in all Sunday Masses on April 23 and 24:

For those persecuted and killed because of political and religious conflict;
for the Armenians and Christians who were killed 90 years ago today
in the Armenian massacre;
for their children and grandchildren who still grieve;
for healing, reconciliation, and justice.
We pray.
