As we find ourselves approaching a third month of physical distancing and restrictions in this COVID-19 pandemic, Canadian Anglicans (and our full-communion Canadian Lutheran family) enthusiastically reminded one another this Pentecost Sunday weekend, that our love for the Holy Spirit is as strong as ever.
The following includes a YouTube playlist (where video links could be located) of national, provincial and diocesan Pentecost celebrations, as well as a few additional select services.
The above playlist can be navigated by clicking the “1/12” icon on the top right corner of the video. The playlist includes recordings such as:
- One Family in Mission, the national Pentecost video collaboration, including more than 200 people combined in the Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada
- Thy Kingdom Come, Pentecost Sunday Service, including faith leaders such as Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby and His Holiness Pope Francis
- One in the Spirit, a collaborative service of the dioceses in the Ecclesiastical Province of Ontario
- Many Faiths, One Voice: Interfaith Prayers for the Forest City—an interfaith prayer service hosted by podcast The Vicar’s Crossing
- Additional diocesan services and messages, where available
