Human Rights Eucharist Honoring Eleanor Roosevelt
Join the Cathedral for a service commemorating the United Nations’ Human Rights Day and celebrating the new feast day of Eleanor Roosevelt. Roosevelt served as the First Lady of the United States (1933–1945), then as the country’s first Delegate to a newly formed United Nations. She chaired the UN Commission on Human Rights, whose members found unity under her leadership to draft the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. On December 10, 1948, the General Assembly adopted the Declaration, which set forth fundamental human rights to be universally protected.
The Cathedral’s service will include a reading of the entire Declaration: an expression of our commitment today to respect, and advocate for, as Eleanor Roosevelt did, the rights and dignity of all people.
