Holy Eucharist and Prayer for Peace in Ukraine at Trinity Church Boston
Trinity Church Boston has warmed our hearts with their sincere support for Ukrainian people. They volunteered to organise a worship and unite with Ukrainian community. Our prayers were going to our heroes back home and every person and child who was suffering from Russian aggression.
Peace March for Ukraine from Copley Square to Parkman Bandstand on the Boston Common
After the worship, we gathered at Copley Square and started marching towards Boston Common. About three thousand people, with the posters saying "Hands Off Ukraine", "Ban Russian Oil", and "Close The Sky" rushed down the Boylston Street demanding action from the US government.

We will never forget the support that the Boston Community has given us that day. The commitment and effort that they've shown gave us strength to continue going.
