Interfaith “Global Prayers for Ukraine”

A Special Multi-Faith Service for Peace and Freedom at the UN

People of faith across the world have condemned the escalation of violence from Russia and have declared steadfast support for Ukraine and its people in the defense of their sovereignty and their democracy.

The Parliament of the World’s Religions and The Committee of Religious NGOs at the UN, in partnership with communities of faith, invite people and communities of faith, spirituality, and conscience to join the “Global Prayers for Ukraine: a multi-faith service for peace and freedom in a hurting world”.

The prayer service will feature prayers from diverse faith expressions upholding peace and freedom, share reflections of solidarity with Ukraine and the Ukrainian community around the world, call for a peaceful resolution to this conflict, and listen to messages from our sisters and brothers in Ukraine.

The interfaith service will be hosted on Thursday, March 3rd at 12 noon Eastern Time at the United Nations Church Center Chapel, open to the New York City community in-person and live streamed to participants around the world via Zoom, Facebook, and YouTube.

This event is organized in partnership with:

Message from the Chaplain of the Church Center for the United Nations

Greetings dear friends,
As a CCUN community, we have certainly kept the people of Ukraine and the many severe armed conflict areas around the world in prayer during our  weekly worship services last week and will continue as this needs a sustained effort of global prayer and petitions for peace. 
However, this Thursday 3 March at 12noon (EDT) the CCUN will host Dr. Scott Stearman, Vice Chair of the Parliament of World Religions, the NGO Committee of Human Rights and several global multifaith leaders in a special prayer service for Ukraine.  I have shared with the PWR leadership that there many ecumenical and interfaith organizations within our CCUN community that have also held respective services, but may also want to partner with us in solidarity for this Thursdays’ service.  This would simply mean having your logo on the promotional materials, on the program and of course if you are able to be either physically present in the Chapel or on line, you are most welcome. 
Below are the draft materials and will be sent out widely today.  If you are interested in being a supporting partner in this prayer service, please reply to this email (which includes Dr. Stearman’s email) with your logo as soon as possible.  The link to the all the media items, promotional materials, etc. is below)  If you are unable to add your organizations’ name at this time, we understand. Please know that we will carry your prayers into the sacred space on Thursday and we will continue to labor together in community around the things that make for peace.  As I’ve said many times before, but it bears repeating in this moment….it is an honor to serve God and humanity alongside each of you. 
Blessings,
-Rev. D
