Mohawk Valley Region Residents Invited to Two Special Events in March

LITTLE FALLS, N.Y. — March 11, 2024 — While the date Sunday, March 24, may pass imperceptibly for many, millions around the world will gather at sundown to commemorate the death of Jesus Christ.

Considered the most important day of the year for Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Memorial is observed annually on Nisan 14 of the Jewish calendar in adherence to Jesus’ statement found at Luke 22:19, “Keep doing this in remembrance of me.” Though there are over 8.6 million Jehovah’s Witnesses around the world, over 20 million people attended the event last year.

“Globally, millions who are not Jehovah’s Witnesses attend this important event each year. We hope that members of our local community will consider joining us in remembering Jesus’ death and what it can mean for us in very positive ways,” said Patrick DeBono, spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses. “While it is a serious event, we see it as a reason for real hope that brings joy to those in attendance.”

The one-hour event will feature a talk highlighting the significance of Jesus’ death and what it means for all of mankind.

In Mohawk Valley Region, a special campaign will be launched during March 2024 to invite local residents to attend the annual observance of the Lord’s Evening Meal as well as a special public talk that will be delivered the week before.

Titled “The Resurrection—Victory Over Death!” the special talk will be delivered at local Kingdom Halls on the weekend of March 16 and 17, 2024. This 30-minute, Bible-based public discourse will focus on the scriptural hope of a resurrection of the dead in the near future.

Heidi Millington of Little Falls says: “My husband and I have always looked forward to the Memorial, as it is a very special occasion. After losing some very close family members to death it has taken on greater meaning for us. We excitedly spend extra time inviting all we can to enjoy both the Memorial and special talk with us each year.”
