On April 12th, 2022, The Peace Department and the Elijah Interfaith Institute hosted the #FaithinUkraine Campaign in Chernivtsi, Ukraine. The campaign united global leaders of all major faiths towards common cause, in a historic interfaith ceremony: the first public assembly since the war began and an unprecedented moment of global religious solidarity and collaboration. The global faith leaders delivered a special tribute to honor those impacted by the bombing of Mariupol, accompanied by poetry, meditations, and live musical interludes from faith institutions. Prior to the event, faith leaders met with refugees and other war-impacted populations in Chernivtsi to hear testimonies and deliver aid packages. The event was viewed by a combined 400 million viewers across distribution platforms and received print coverage in 542 pieces of media. The Faith in Ukraine Campaign inspired HH Pope Francis to take action and write a letter to the people of Ukraine, which was read during the event itself. HH Pope Francis expressed, “I thank you for the initiative of this moment of prayer and fraternity between followers of the different religions, which contributes to strengthening the sense of responsibility of believers before a war that contradicts all those efforts made in past decades to build a world with fewer weapons and greater peace. May government leaders, especially those who appeal to the sacred principles of religion, hear the word of God that says: “I have plans for peace and not for evil” (Jer 29:11).
