Interfaith Memorial Prayer Service

Ignatian Interfaith Ministry’s mission is to promote dialogue through greater knowledge and understanding of the world’s faiths. We seek to further its mission by fostering partnerships, and ultimately individual relationships, with houses of worship on the Upper East Side as well as leaders in their respective faiths. During Covid19 this year, we spearheaded a virtual Interfaith Prayer Service among our neighboring churches and synagogue on the Upper East Side.


Some of our partners for events and dialogue include:

  • Christ Church (Methodist)
  • Congregation Or Zarua
  • Jewish Theological Seminary
  • Orthodox Chaplaincy of St. Gregory
  • Park Avenue Synagogue
  • Park Avenue Christian
  • Peace Islands Institute New York
  • The Brick Church
  • Temple Shaaray Tefila
  • The Islamic Cultural Center – 96th Street


  • Learn About the Feast of Purim! (Park Avenue Synagogue)
  • Screening of A Nuclear Requiem (Christ Church)
  • Jesus Prayer & Vespers April 2018 with Fr. Sergey Trostyanskiy (Orthodox Chaplaincy of St. Gregory)
  • Iftar, Iftar Celebration of the end of the daily Ramadan Fast in 2018 & 2019 (Peace Islands Institute)
  • The Sultan & the Saint documentary screening and author discussion with Paul Moses (Peace Islands Institute)


We are exploring the idea of an interfaith memorial service for those lost to COVID-19 in October.
