Historic St. Ignatius Church at Calvert and Madison Streets will join the Baltimore New Year’s Eve scene with its Annual Interfaith Prayer Service. It will be the 26th gathering of people of various faiths, including Jewish, Christian and Muslim, to offer thanksgiving for blessings during the past year and to pray for continued blessings in 2019. The musical program begins at 8 PM. The hour-long service follows, concluding at 9:30 PM, well in advance of other New Year’s Eve activities. Archbishop William Lori will be the presider with the reflections given by Rev. Fr. David Milad of St. Barnabas & St. Susanna Coptic Orthodox Church. We are expecting Mayor Catherine Pugh to participate as well.
