“Reconnect and renew” was the theme for Global Relations in 2022. A major highlight was the continuing work of the Companions of Jerusalem, involving preparations for the 2023 young adult pilgrimage to the Holy Land, for 2022 Jerusalem and Holy Land Sunday, and Primate Nicholls and National Bishop Johnson’s Full Communion visit in December. This visit strengthened Nicholls’ and Johnson’s commitment to amplify the voice of the Church in advocating with the Canadian government for peace and justice between Palestine and Israel.
Other Global Relations highlights included the preparation of a new Companion Diocese Relationship resource for Canadian bishops’ connecting with Communion counterparts at the summer Lambeth Conference.
As the world emerges from the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, Global Relations looks forward to renewing relationships for mission with all partners, including the Council of Anglican Provinces in Africa, the Province of Brazil, and Anglican Oceania Fono.
