Prayer Vigil for India and Myanmar

The goal of our collaboration proposal is

To pray together for the crises in Myanmar and India

Description of our collaboration proposal

Jesuit Mission invites you to attend an online Prayer Vigil for Myanmar and India. These nations are in crisis and need our support now more than ever. 


In Myanmar the violent military coup has thrown the country into immense political unrest, resulting in the deaths of over 700 peaceful protestors since February. Efforts to control the spread of the virus have crumbled, with many hospitals shut down or taken over by the military. 


In India the second wave of the pandemic is catastrophic. Critical oxygen shortages and over 20 million COVID infections sadly means that there is little hope for vulnerable communities. Currently there are 10 Hazaribag Jesuits hospitalised, with one in critical condition.


The prayer vigil is an opportunity for the global Jesuit community and beyond to join together in solidarity and support our sisters and brothers in crisis overseas.


The Vigil will be 30 minutes and led by:

  • Fr Tony Moreno SJ, President of Jesuit Conference of Asia Pacific (JCAP)
  • Fr Stany D’Souza SJ, President of Jesuit Conference of South Asia (JCSA)
  • Fr Quyen Vu SJ, Australian Provincial
  • Fr Santosh Minj SJ, Hazaribag Provincial
  • Sch. PV Joseph SJ, Burmese Scholastic in Rome
  • Helen Forde, CEO Jesuit Mission (Host)
