Prayers and Mass for Iraqi Christians this afternoon in Surrey

In remembrance of victims of the Oct. 31 terrorist attack on the Syriac Catholic Church in Baghdad, Iraq, Vancouver Archbishop J. Michael Miller has sent a letter of sorrow to Iraqi Catholics at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church in Surrey, home to a large Iraqi Catholic community.

The parish is inviting everyone this afternoon, Sunday, Nov. 14, to a prayer vigil and Mass for victims of the Baghdad attack. The vigil will start at 2:30 p.m. with Rosary for the souls of martyrs. Mass for the intention of the martyrs will follow at 2:45 p.m.

See the archbishop's letter below.
