Message Marking the One Year Anniversary of the Pandemic Declaration
In a pastoral letter entitled, "Jesus Wept", Archbishop Anne Germond, on behalf of the Ontario House of Bishops, invites Anglicans to mark the past year by observing March 11th as a day of fasting and prayer.
The bishops invites people to ‘stand together’ and observe 3 minutes of silence at 11:35 am on this day as we call to mind the loss, the pain, the grief, the resilience, the compassion, and the extraordinary sacrifices that have been hallmarks of the past year.
