Harlem’s Cathedral Of St. John The Divine Welcomes President-Elect Of The United Nations General Assembly For UN Sunday

UN Sunday, a longstanding tradition at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, will include a guest sermon by His Excellency Mr. Csaba Kőrösi, the 77th President of the United Nations General Assembly.

The event will take place on Sunday, September 25th, 2022, at 10:30 am at the Cathedral Of St. John the Divine located at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue at 112th Street in Harlem, NY.

The Cathedral of St. John the Divine has welcomed the President of the General Assembly to the pulpit for over 40 years. 

This year, the Cathedral is honored to welcome H.E. Mr. Csaba Kőrösi, who for many years has served Hungary and the international community as a leader in security policy, multilateral diplomacy, and human rights.

Kőrösi headed Hungary’s permanent UN representation in New York between 2010 and 2014 and served as director for environmental sustainability at the Office of the President of the Republic of Hungary until his election as President of the General Assembly.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres congratulated Mr. Kőrösi on his election in a recent statement, saying, “President-elect Kőrösi brings a broad perspective to his new post — a familiarity with the United Nations from his time as Permanent Representative, expertise in environmental sustainability, and steadfast commitment to multilateral action.”  

As the world faces renewed turmoil, from the war in Ukraine to the lingering effects of the COVID pandemic, the Cathedral will continue to support the work of the United Nations in sustaining vital international relationships and cooperation.

The service will be held in person and live-streamed on the Cathedral, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue at 112th Street in HarlemwebsiteFacebook page, and YouTube channel.
