29th Annual New Years Eve Interfaith Prayer Celebration

December 31, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

The Historic St. Ignatius Church at Calvert and Madison Streets will join the Baltimore New Year’s Eve scene with its Annual Interfaith Prayer Celebration. This will be the 29th gathering of people of various faiths, including Jewish, Christian, Muslim and Buddhist, to offer thanksgiving for blessings during the past year and to pray for continued blessings in 2022. The musical program begins at 8 PM. The hour-long service follows, concluding at 9:30 PM, well in advance of other New Year’s Eve activities. Archbishop William Lori will be the presider with the reflection given by Imam Earl El-Amin from the Muslim Community Cultural Center of Baltimore. The Call to Prayer will be led by Daiko Matt Fetting from the Burning House Zendo. Once again, Mayor Brandon Scott and Police Commissioner Michael Harrison will join us. The other special focus of the evening will be the incredible music by the St. Ignatius Choir, instrumentalists, and guest soloists – as well as a brass ensemble.
