The Parish of Tavira will host next Saturday, 5, at 21:00 hours, in the Church of St. Francis, an ecumenical celebration, which will have as its central theme "Praise and Bendize".
This prayer and reflection meeting will be held to mark the day on which Saint Francis is celebrated (October 4).
The action will bring together the Eastern Rite Christians, with Father Oleg Trushko, chaplain of the Greek-Catholic Ukrainian community present.
At this time, Christians from the Anglican community were invited to join.
The initiative “responds to Pope Francis' challenge to hold a month of prayer for Creation in order to make all Catholics aware of the need to respect and care for the planet,” says the Diocese of Algarve.
