Prayer for Peace
April 14 | 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm
| UN Headquarters
Join us at the Prayer for Peace moment, which will be held on Friday, 14 April 2023 at 12:30 p.m. at the Knotted Gun sculpture, Visitors’ Plaza, United Nations Headquarters.
The United Nations Secretary-General, Mr. António Guterres, will be joined by faith leaders to deliver a critical message about peace at a time of so much conflict and suffering around the world and for a moment of silence.
The Prayer for Peace moment will take place at a special time on the spiritual calendar, when Christians are celebrating Easter, Jews are marking Passover, and Muslims are observing the holy month of Ramadan. Sikhs are also celebrating Vaisakhi on 14 April.
The moment is an opportunity for individuals of diverse faiths and beliefs to reflect on the importance of maintaining and building long-lasting peace, to remember the most vulnerable, and to embrace compassion, solidarity and mutual respect – values at the heart of the UN Charter.
Members of the UN family, including staff, delegates and the press corps, are welcome to attend. The event will also be broadcast on UN Web TV.
