    Salvation Army to Participate in National Ecumenical Prayer Service

    Commissioner Floyd Tidd, territorial commander, to help lead "Together in One Place." May 25, 2020

    Amid the unique challenges and opportunities of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadian Council of Churches will host an online ecumenical Pentecost prayer service on May 30 at 3 p.m. (EDT), to “come together in one place” (Acts 2:1) in ecumenical friendship and prayer.

    The season of Pentecost has always held a special significance for the ecumenical movement. With it comes the promise of new life through the arrival of the Holy Spirit, and a reminder of the unity we share, which has been forged with God’s help across differences.

    Prayers, Scripture readings and reflections will be offered in English and French.


    National church leaders from across Canada will lead the service, as we look toward an uncertain, yet hope-filled future. 

    The Rev. Amanda Currie, Moderator of the 2019 General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, and the Most Rev. Pierre Goudreault, Roman Catholic Bishop of Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pocatière, will offer brief reflections.

    Other service leaders include:

    The Rt. Rev. Richard Bott, Moderator of The United Church of Canada

    The Rev. Susan C. Johnson, National Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada
    The Rev. Stephen Kendall, President of The Canadian Council of Churches
    The Most Rev. Linda Nicholls, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada
    Pastor Peter Noteboom, General Secretary of The Canadian Council of Churches
    Commissioner Floyd J. Tidd, Territorial Commander of The Salvation Army in Canada and Bermuda
    The Rev. Archpriest Fr. Zareh Zargarian, Vicar, Armenian Holy Apostolic Church, Canadian Diocese
