NEW YORK—On Saturday, March 22, 2014, Jehovah’s Witnesses will launch a global campaign inviting the public to an event the Witnesses consider to be the most important of the year: the Memorial of Christ’s death. Last year, there were 19,241,252 that gathered for this special observance. The Witnesses hope to reach a new all-time peak in attendance for this year’s Memorial, which will be held on Monday, April 14, after sundown.
“We are sure that all who attend the Memorial with us will enjoy this occasion and benefit from it,” states J. R. Brown, a spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses at their world headquarters in New York. “That prospect is motivating us to invite as many as possible to join us for this sacred event.”
