Bike Pilgrimage & Prayer for Peace in Ukraine

03/19/2022 11:30 AM - 02:30 PM CT


All are invited to a meaningful bike ride and prayer for peace to show solidarity with the people of Ukraine. Please join us!


Ride Illinois has partnered with the Multi-Ethnic Church of Mt. Greenwood and St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church to offer a 5-mile (30 minute) casual, slow-paced bike pilgrimage for peace to Sts. Peter & Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Palos Park. Upon arrival, participants will attend a prayer service for peace in Ukraine. We'll ride back as a group after the prayer service. People of all faiths are invited to participate in this event.
