On behalf of Archbishop Greg and our Primate Linda Nicholls, in coordination with the Canadian Council of Churches, please find below an opportunity on Sunday, April 24, to join in prayer for peace, to ring bells if you have them, or offer some other liturgical action in your community.
In solidarity with the Ukrainian Bishops of Canada, we invite you to join with The Canadian Council of Churches on April 24, 2022 which is Pascha (Easter Sunday on the Julian calendar), to proclaim together that Christ is Risen, that love overcomes fear, and that life overcomes death and destruction.
We invite all worshipping communities to pray for peace and to ring your church bells at 12 noon your time (or offer some other liturgical action appropriate in your community) as a sign and celebration of hope.
Please visit the news release on our website for more info, ideas, and prayers, all of which are available in English, French, and Ukrainian translation. (NOTE: one small portion of the FR and UKR translations is forthcoming; we will update the resources by the end of the day Monday, April 11, 2022 with the finished translation. Please email our Communications Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are having problems accessing final versions after that date.)
