Domestic Violence Help

We have all heard that there is an increase in Domestic Violence due to the current  situation, with particular regards to people being  indoors with each other far longer than  normal.  People living in enforced close proximity will lead to increased  tensions in some cases. Although it’s something we would like to hope is not too prevalent within our parishes, unfortunately there are likely to be families and partnerships  who are in  challenging, and in some cases abusive and or  violent  relationships. Please pray for any who are vulnerable at this time.
