Easter Video Message

Joint Anglican-Lutheran Easter Video Message

April 02, 2009 - The leaders of the Anglican Church of Canada (ACC) and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) again mark their churches' full communion relationship by issuing a joint video message for Easter.

In this short video, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the ACC, and Bishop Susan Johnson, national bishop of the ELCIC speak about the importance of Holy Week, particularly during this time of economic strain.

Since 2001, the ACC and the ELCIC have been in a full communion relationship, and several joint Anglican-Lutheran parishes and cooperative ministries have sprung up across Canada. Recently Archbishop Hiltz and Bishop Johnson have worked towards greater cooperation between their churches, even proposing the idea of a joint Anglican-Lutheran national office.
