90th Anniversary Memorial March

 

The Ukrainian-American community will mark the 90th anniversary of the Holodomor, Stalin’s 1932-1933 Famine Genocide in Ukraine, with a solemn procession beginning in the East Village at 10:30am.

Participants will gather at St. George Ukrainian Catholic Church (at 30 East 7th Street) by 10:30am for a solemn procession up 3rd Avenue. The Memorial March will end at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, where a requiem service sung by the Ukrainian Chorus Dumka of New York will take place beginning at 1:00pm.

Participants should dress in embroidered shirts or else dark and muted tones.

We encourage everyone to bring and carry with them a stalk of wheat or candle. Marchers can prepare and carry flags as well as informational signs and banners, so long as they do not incorporate any wooden, metal or plastic rods, which are not allowed under our permit. Signs and banners are not allowed into St. Patrick’s Cathedral, must be left outside.

Participants will gather at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, where a requiem service sung by the Ukrainian Chorus Dumka of New York will take place beginning at 1:00pm.
