Williams' Statement In Observance Of Easter

March 17th, 2022

Press Release

"Happy, blessed Easter to Christians celebrating around the city today!

"On this holy day, the Easter promises of redemption and resurrection are proclaimed and realized, reverberating in our lives. Easter evokes themes of rebirth, of rising from sorrow and looking toward joy. This rebirth is reflected around our city as we work to recover from the pandemic that persists.

"Amid the challenges we face in this moment, in our world and in our personal lives, I am reminded that Easter Sunday is also about hope - the hope that amid loss, in the face of trials, good can and will come. The triumph of Resurrection Sunday comes only after the trauma of Good Friday.

"In that spirit of unity and hope, I wish New Yorkers and their families an abundance of joy on this holiday.”
