Christmas Touched by the Spirit of Full Communion

Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) Bishop Susan Johnson and Anglican Church of Canada (ACC) Primate Fred Hiltz speak of the Prince of Peace and share Christmas memories in a special joint message now available online at

The ELCIC and ACC have been in full communion since 2001, when the Waterloo Declaration asserted their similarities and allowed for interchangeability of clergy.

The four-minute Christmas video message can be downloaded for use in parishes and elsewhere. A transcript is also available.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada is Canada’s largest Lutheran denomination with 174,555 baptized members in 620 congregations. It is a member of the Lutheran World Federation, the Canadian Council of Churches and the World Council of Churches.
