A MESSAGE OF HOPE FROM THE PRIMATE
In this short video message, Archbishop and Primate Linda Nicholls reflects on the challenges we are facing as individuals and as a community of faith during this time of pandemic. The light on the darkest days is our shared faith in Jesus Christ, and our practice of prayer brings us the gifts of stability and hope.
Drawing on examples from the past, times of hardship and fear during pandemics, wars and other disasters, Archbishop Linda reminds us of the power of our faith and the power of our community as we struggle to be together in any way that we can.
