On Sunday, February 13, the Cathedral will host a memorial service in honor of the late Archbishop Desmond Tutu (1931-2021).

Archbishop Tutu spoke at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in 1986 to thank Americans for protesting against apartheid, and raise awareness for South African refugee funds. Archbishop Tutu was known globally for preaching a Gospel of radical reconciliation and truth-telling.

The memorial service will be joined by The Most Reverend Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church, The Right Reverend Andrew Dietsche, Bishop of the Diocese of New York, and The Right Reverend Clifton Daniel, Dean of the Cathedral. This in-person and livestreamed memorial service will celebrate Archbishop Tutu’s legacy and prophetic voice for justice.

There are a limited number of seats available for the public, so please reserve your seat by February 4. To RSVP, email Samantha Hall (shall@stjohndivine.org)
