Primate’s Statement on Ukraine

The Traditional Anglican Church worldwide stands in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. We pray for peace; we pray for the end of the war, aggression and violence from Putin’s Russian forces; and we pray for a free, united and independent Ukraine.

As Primate, I invite all the Bishops, Clergy and People to continue prayers for President Volodymyr Zelensky, for the Ukrainian people, and their armed forces, as they defend their country and freedom. I would also ask as many as are able to contribute to the Red Cross or other humanitarian organizations helping the thousands of Ukrainians forced to seek safety in neighbouring countries.

O GOD, who makest wars to cease, and by thy mighty arm dost overthrow the adversaries of them that put their trust in thee: Come to the help of thy servants who humbly call upon thy mercy; that being delivered from the violence of the enemy, they may evermore praise thee with thanksgiving; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

The Most Reverend Shane B. Janzen
