Joint Anglican-Lutheran Easter Video Message

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

In this short video, Bishop Susan C. Johnson, national bishop of the ELCIC, and Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the ACC, 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 leaders of the two churches met in Toronto to discuss greater cooperation between their churches.
