Musical prayer service April 5

In line with my previous post, and in the light of ongoing events in Russia and the Ukraine, a musical prayer service for peace, reconciliation and Christian unity will be held at the American Church in Paris,  65 quai d’Orsay, 75007 PARIS (métro: Invalides, RER: Pont de l’Alma, bus 63) at 3 p.m. this Saturday, April 5th. I will be introducing and playing piano music by Valentin Silvestrov; the event is also intended to raise awareness of the ecumenical efforts of the Urbi et Orbi Foundation focused on Eastern Europe, seeking to ‘”build bridges” between divided Christians, especially between Catholics and the Orthodox, through conferences, concerts, exhibitions, and common works of charity.’ For further details concerning the work of Urbi et Orbi, see insidethevatican.com/urbi-et-orbi.
