In the week of 18 April 2021 we pray for diocesan bishop The Most Rev. Anne Germond, Archbishop, and the clergy and people of the Diocese of Algoma.
In the ACC/ELCIC Cycle of Prayer, we also pray this week for The Right of Indigenous Peoples to Free, Prior and Informed Consent and a renewed commitment to responsible resource extraction. More about FPIC from Kairos Canada here and from the UN here.
