Multi-faith festival of prayer and music

On the evening of 9/24, the night before Pope Francis speaks to the UN, there will be a multi-faith festival of prayer and music called Light the Way from 4:30-5:30 pm at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza (47th street and First Avenue), across the street from the United Nations.

Leaders from Catholic and other faith communities will offer prayers, meditations, and music to show support for Pope Francis’ message on the urgency of addressing climate change and poverty, and to pray for world leaders to act.
