Catholics living in Rome met on Friday to pray for peace in Ukraine.
The small Cathedral Church of Saints Sergius and Bacchus was filled to overflowing for vespers, or evening prayer, on the evening of Feb. 25, the day after Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

Some who attended the prayer service were passersby who noticed the Ukrainian church and stopped in to pray.
