As we continue into the second week of this lockdown, though we are more accustomed to the restrictions and isolation, yet it is still not that easy for many people.

Jesuit Mission will be hosting an online Prayer Vigil in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Myanmar and India.  So many people are struggling and need your support - please join us in prayer.
