Mindehøjtidelighed

Siden de tragiske hændelser i Bruxelles har terroren slået til igen flere andre steder, senest i Irak og Pakistan. Og i marts måned var der blodsudgydelser i både Tyrkiet, Irak, Nigeria og på Elfenbenskysten.

Københavns Domkirke inviterer sammen med den belgiske ambassade, Elfenbenskystens ambassade, den pakistanske ambassade og den tyrkiske ambassade, alle til at komme og deltage i mindegudstjenesten for i fællesskab at reflektere over de tragiske begivenheder og vise støtte til de ramte.

Domprovst Anders Gadegaard leder gudstjenesten på tværs af lande, regioner og kulturer. Der vil undervejs være korte taler fra bl.a. justitsminister Søren Pind, den belgiske ambassadør Pol de Witte samt forfatter Jens Christian Grøndahl.

Hodja Hüseyin Gültekin vil recitere suraen "Al-Fathia" og Københavns Drengekor synger salmer. Parvaiz Akhtar fremfører et sufi-digt på punjabi og Anna og Igor Egholm spiller Bachs "Ave Maria" for violin og cello.

Ved kirkens indgang vil der ved ankomst være mulighed for at nedskrive en kort bøn eller tanke - eller at tænde et lys - for terrorens ofre.

På denne dag markerer vi, at vi står sammen. Sammen om at sørge over ofrene - og sammen i solidaritet med alle der rammes af terror, uanset hvor. Vi står samlet i fordømmelse af al terrorisme.

United we stand - A Memorial Service

On Wednesday, April 6th at 17.00 hrs, a memorial Service commemorating the victims of all recent terror attacks will be held at the Vor Frue Kirke, Nørregade 8, 1165 Copenhagen.

Since the tragic events in Brussels, Belgium, terror has already stricken elsewhere. Iraq and Pakistan were the most recent victims. In March, blood was shed in Turkey, Iraq, Nigeria and Côte d’Ivoire.

Together with the Embassies of Belgium, Côte d’Ivoire, Pakistan and Turkey, the Cathedral of Copenhagen welcomes all who want to share a moment to meditate or to express solidarity.

In the presence of dignitaries, both civil and religious, Vr. Rev. Anders Gadegaard, Dean of the Cathedral, will lead the service, transcending religions, races and cultures. A number of personalities, including Minister of Justice Mr. Søren Pind, Ambassador of Belgium Mr. Pol De Witte and the author Mr Jens Christian Grøndahl will address the audience. Hodja Hüseyin Gültekin will recite the sura “Al Fatiha”.

Hymns will be sung by all including the Copenhagen Royal Chapel Choir. Parvaiz Akhtar will perform Sufi Music poetry in Punjabi. Bach’s Ave Maria will be played on violin and cello by Anna and Igor Egholm. All participants are invited to write a word of prayer or sympathy when entering the Cathedral. They can also light a candle and leave it on the stairs to the choir in the church.

United we stand both in mourning the victims, in solidarity with all afflicted and in condemning terrorism.
