Praying for Peace
Beneath your compassion,
We take refuge, O Theotokos, God-bearer:
do not despise our petitions in time of trouble:
but rescue us from dangers,
only pure, only blessed one.
The icon of the Virgin of Vladimir, which is reproduced here, resided in Kyiv from 1131 to 1395, when it was transferred to Moscow. She thus represents God’s love for people on all sides of this conflict.
Our Wednesday noon Eucharist is dedicated to prayers for peace. You are welcome to join us.
Christ Church Cathedral is a multi-ethnic congregation in downtown Montreal, and we are passionate about inclusion. We have entered a process of reviewing our own corporate life, to identify our own history of racism as well as the ways in which our structures systemically exclude people because of their colour. Flying this flag is a symbol of these tasks for justice which we undertake in sorrow and solidarity.
The Cathedral is open on Sunday for all services
9 am - 5 pm Monday to Friday
10 am - 6 pm Saturday
