Williamsburg churches create human chain to call for peace in the Ukraine


Worshippers from neighboring Catholic churches in Williamsburg came together on Sunday, Aug. 28 to call for peace in the Ukraine by forming a human chain and partaking in a prayer walk from one parish to another.

Monsignor Jamie Gigantiello, pastor of Our Lady of Mount Carmel-Annunciation Parish, led the human chain from the corner of North Fifth and Havemeyer streets, outside the Annunciation Roman Catholic Church, to the Holy Ghost Ukrainian Catholic Church on Driggs Avenue.
