Vigil for peace in Israel and Gaza

Scroll to explore

Join us for a night of reflection and contemplation as religious, political and civic leaders from across York come together for a vigil to call for peace and an end to the conflict in Israel and Gaza.

The vigil will begin with a welcome and address from the Very Reverend Dominic Barrington, Dean of York, before reflections are shared by political, civic and religious leaders from across the city.

There will be a period of silence before members of the public are invited to write their thoughts and prayers onto provided pieces of white paper which will be placed on the cathedral’s altar platform to form a large white peace dove.

Candles will be lit at the end of the vigil as we continue to hold in our hearts the suffering of all those affected by the conflict.

The vigil will take place in the cathedral’s nave starting at 6.30pm and will last approximately an hour.

All are welcome, no booking is required.
