Ecumenical Pentecost Prayer

Amid the unique challenges and opportunities of this year’s COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) is hosting an online ecumenical Pentecost prayer service that will allow us to “come together in one place” (Acts 2:1) in ecumenical friendship and prayer.
Leaders of CCC member churches from coast to coast to coast will gather with us as we look together to an uncertain yet hope-filled future. Prayers, Scripture readings, and reflections will be offered in English and French.
Highlights of the service:
The Rev. Amanda Currie, Moderator of the 2019 General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, and The Most Rev. Pierre Goudreault, Roman Catholic Bishop of Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pocatière, will offer brief homiletic reflections.
Other service leaders include:
The Rt. Rev. Richard Bott, Moderator of The United Church of Canada
The Rev. Susan C. Johnson, National Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada
The Rev. Stephen Kendall, President of The Canadian Council of Churches
The Most Rev. Linda Nicholls, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada
Pastor Peter Noteboom, General Secretary of The Canadian Council of Churches
Commissioner Floyd J. Tidd, Territorial Commander of The Salvation Army in Canada and Bermuda

Interreligious prayer for May 14, 2020, Day of Prayer, Fasting and Works of Charity

The Higher Committee of Human Fraternity proposes Thursday, 14 May 2020 as a Day
of prayers, fasting, and works of charity for the good of all humanity.

In this regard, the Committee invites leaders and peoples around the world to respond to this call together

Join the common prayer with this prayer developed by the Interreligious Forum for Peace of the Canadian Center for Ecumenism!

"We are living at a time that is both disturbing and amazing, a time that is dangerous and where nothing preserves the soul… As members of faith communities, being aware of the true value of the spiritual life, we carry a great responsibility and we must live up to it, together we must help each other to create places of refuges for spiritual peace." We come together today, the14th of May 2020, on this fasting day of prayer and charitable works, in order to implore God to preserve the world, to help us to overcome this pandemic, to restore security, health, and prosperity. Together we pray that once the pandemic is over, humanity may come to know the true value of the spiritual life, to grant a larger place to human brotherhood, and to protect life and Creation. (Inspired by Mother Genevieve Micheli, 1938)
