The Canadian Centre for Ecumenism expresses deepest condolences to the victims and their families belonging to the Churches attacked by bombs in Siri Lanka, on Easter Sunday, April 22, 2019. We condemn these horrifying attacks, grief with the Christian community and pray for the victims and their families.
We reject violence, in particular when it is perpetrated in the name of religion. We cannot and do not want to live in fear and despair. And so, we stay in solidarity with all the groups who build bridges of understanding and peace through respectful and peaceful interreligious dialogue.
