LONG VIGIL: The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, who will fast for a week for world peace

First published in News by

THE Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu is set to fast for a week in an attempt to bring peace to war-torn areas of the world.

Dr Sentamu will be praying on the hour, every hour, from 6am to 6pm, from Sunday, (August 24) in St John’s Chapel at York Minster.

In advance of his vigil of Hope and Trust for the Peace of the World, Dr Sentamu said: “Please join me in praying especially for those places in our global village devastated by militarism, idolatry (the worship of God wrongly conceived), dictatorships and abject poverty.

"One way of making our solidarity and commitment together to be instruments and makers of peace is to place white linen in our windows."
