Join the City of Chicago for a Chicago Day of Prayer & Thanksgiving

November 1, 2021

No matter where you live, or how you worship – prayer is universal. On November 6, Chicagoans across all denominations in all of Chicago’s 77 neighborhoods will pause for a shared moment of prayer for COVID-safe holidays. This moment will also offer a reminder that everyone needs to be fully vaccinated by November 11 to be able to celebrate Thanksgiving safely.

Here are two ways to get involved:

  • Spread the Word & Join a Local Prayer: Join a local observance of the Day of Prayer on November 6th and spread the word on any local events happening in your community.
  • Host a Street-Corner-Prayer for Healing in Your Community: If you’re a faith leader interested in hosting a Chicago Day of Prayer at your place of worship, register today and we will follow up with more information and resources for your event.

All faiths and denominations are welcome.
