Bishop Robert to host vigil in Peel cathedral

The Island's bishop is inviting the Manx community to join him in Peel cathedral this evening, for prayers and reflection on the crisis in Syria and Iraq (Fri 5 Sept).

Bishop Robert Paterson issued a prayer call earlier this week, after a second US journalist was killed by Islamic State militants.

Bishop Robert says the persecution of slaughter of tens of thousands of victims, including many Christians, amounts to a medieval war in the 21st century.

He says believers of all faiths can do something positive, together, to mark their hopes for an end to the current crisis:

Bishop Robert will be in the cathedral in Peel from 7-8pm this evening.
