The Anglican Church of Canada has designated February 20, 2022 as Freedom Sunday - an opportunity to learn about human trafficking and slavery in Canada today. 

Freedom Sunday is a global movement of prayer, worship and action to address the crime of human trafficking. In the Anglican Church of Canada, Freedom Sunday shines light on the connections between human trafficking, labour exploitation, and missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, and 2SLGBTQAAI persons. Globally, faith communities learn about human trafficking in their neighbourhoods and beyond. Everywhere, people of faith express compassion and solidarity with trafficked peoples through prayer, bible study and worship, and by making commitments to tackle these horrific crimes.

Marking Freedom Sunday Together
February 20, 7 pm -- on Zoom

To mark Freedom Sunday, we are planning service of prayer and learning, to encourage youth to take action against human trafficiking in our own communities and in the world. 

The service is planned for youth, but everyone is welcome to participate.

If you'd like to help plan the service, or participate in any way, please email Allie at acolp@nspeidiocese.ca

Human Trafficking is the focus of the current National Youth Project, More Precious. In the lead up to CLAY (Canadian Lutheran Anglican Youth Gathering) next summer, there will be resources to encourage youth to learn more and take action. You'll find those here

In addition to this diocesan youth service, we encourage you to mark Freedom Sunday in your parishes.
