A Service of Prayer, Justice and Truth

Wednesday, April 21, 2021
12 PM - 1 PM
West Front Stairs 

As the country takes a collective breath following the announcement of the verdict in the Derek Chauvin case yesterday, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine will stand with its community for a Service of Prayer, Justice and Truth centered on the pursuit of equity and against intolerance and bigotry on Wednesday, April 21 at 12 pm.

All are invited to the Cathedral’s front steps as the Cathedral clergy, joined by religious leaders from across Harlem and the rest of New York City, pledge themselves to continue the fight for truth, justice, and healing.

The liturgy, written by the Reverend Canon Patrick Malloy, Sub Dean and Canon for Liturgy & the Arts at the Cathedral, will draw upon the Cathedral’s central mission as a house of prayer for all people and the Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to working towards justice, reconciliation, and racial healing.
