Cathedral to host SPIRITUAL SOUNDS on Sunday, January 25, 2015 at 5PM

Save the Date!

Our Cathedral to host the 6TH SPIRITUAL SOUNDS CONCERT

Next Sunday, January 25 at 5PM, the Rabbi's, Priests, Imam, Reverends, Buddhist and Hindu monks of the East Village are holding their 6th Annual free, open to the public Spiritual Sounds event.

Yearly they have this warm, inspiring sharing of recitation and spiritual sounds from each of their traditions.

Since Spring 2009 they have been gathering, doing open community walks, open community discussions on the difficult issues, having international food nights, making statements together standing up to the hatred, divisions and injustices by anyone, anywhere. They walk the talk, daily, together. A living example of the best of NYC spirit.

These faith institutions not only represent the full gamete of religions present here, but always welcome all of no religion, to join in common cause of humanity an antidote to what divides people around the world and at home. They stand for furthering justice, for all. They also contain the memory, traditions, historical roots of a city's people fast changing, waves of immigration over the past 150 + years in our area. They are the living preservationists that not only built but saved the area during hard times. They continue.

Joint Affirmation of The Local Faith Communities of the East Village

We, the local faith communities of Jews, Muslims, Christians, Hindus, and Buddhists stand here together before you in peace, and as one humanity.

Here in the Lower East Side, with its over 250 year history of people from all corners of the world, all faiths, languages and cultures, seeking refuge from great oppression, hatred and poverty, we have had to learn and re-teach ourselves repeatedly about the advantages of and the goodness in tolerance and respect while living side by side.

Let us honor the work of those generations before us who labored together, to feed, nourish, educate ourselves, build bridges, share our joys and cultural celebrations, and to establish our unique houses of worship next to each other. We gather toward healing (in times of acts of hatred/prejudice), prevention, respect and understanding, in the strength of our deep common values. We wish to encourage and reflect the greatest shining strength of our city and our nation, the best in us, our unity in our diversity.
