Prayer Vigil remembering 2 years of full scale war in Ukraine, Cavan


February 24, 2022 marked a tragic day in the history of Ukraine, as a full-scale war commenced. For two years now, the nation has been courageously battling a ruthless adversary, safeguarding what is most precious – the lives of its people.

The memorial service will be conducted by Fr Kevin Fay and Fr Vasily from the Ukrainian Church.

To demonstrate unity, there will be performances by Irish and Ukrainian artists, including special appearance by award winning singer/songwriter Don Mescall.

Irish traditional music will be performed by Martin Donohoe with his band.

And compositions performed by The National Ukrainian Choir of Ireland will also be heard.

The event will take place on February 24, 2024, at 4:30 p.m. in the Cathedral of Saint Patrick and Saint Felim, Cavan.
