Diocesan Events

Primate encourages Anglicans to ring bells on Christmas
Archbishop Linda Nicholls, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, has invited every parish with a bell, and every parishioner with a bell at home, to ring out our joy at 12 p.m. on Christmas Day. In her letter, she says “Let’s share with the world that despite all the restrictions and losses we are facing, Christ is born and hope is renewed.”

Anglican Church of Canada to host virtual Lessons and Carols service
The service of Lessons and Carols is one of the most widely anticipated and well-known events during Advent. And yet, many may not experience this event locally, due to a number of physical worship spaces being temporarily closed due to public health protocols related to the pandemic. Anticipating this potential reality, General Synod has worked with Anglican cathedrals across Canada to offer a special, national service of Lessons and Carols this Advent season, and to help us all prepare for the coming of the Kingdom of God. A broadcast of the national Lessons & Carols service will take place on Dec. 18 at 8 p.m. (ET).

The service will be approximately an hour in length and will be available for viewing on this page, as well as Facebook and YouTube, on or after the broadcast time.
