Our Session’s “A Prayerful Response to the Violence in Israel and Palestine” offers a variety of ways to put our prayers into action, as does Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA), providing humanitarian assistance through partners on the ground.

Ongoing Interfaith Opportunities with Fourth Church
Every year on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, Fourth Presbyterian Church, Chicago Sinai Congregation, Holy Name Cathedral, and other partners gather for a service of thanksgiving.
