Global Day of Action and Prayer for Syria

Wednesday, September 21, 2016 - 14:00


Five plus years of war has taken a heavy toll on our Syrian brothers and sisters.

On September 21 we will send a resounding interfaith call for an end to the devastating conflict that has shattered Syria, displacing over 11 million people - half of its citizens – and caused injury, trauma and death to hundreds of thousands more. It is time for the violence and war to stop and to begin the hard work of moving forward, toward a future where all Syrians can live together in peace and security.

How Can You Take Part?

  • An Interfaith Prayer Service will be held at the Community Church of New York on September 21st at 5:00 p.m. Join us! 
  • Can’t be in New York? Plan a prayer service or other activity in your community in conjunction with the day.
