For the past three months the Sisters of St. Joseph in Saskatoon have been doing their part to show solidarity with Ukraine.

The Ukrainian group has been holding a special service every night to pray for victims of the violence in Ukraine.

Sister Theodosia said Thursday the group goes to Ukraine frequently to work with other groups of nuns in order to help orphaned children.

"This particular conflict is difficult for us to bare because of the fact that we are there so often, we know so many people in the country; we know people involved," Sister Theodosia said.

The nuns hold the service every night at 7 p.m., at 215 Avenue M South.

They've invited everyone to join them in prayer.

"To pray for the people in Ukraine and to petition the Lord to inspire them all to bring a peaceful conclusion to this conflict," Sister Theodosia explained. "So we've been doing this."
