In advance of the April 2 launch of the fourth annual Say Yes! to Kids campaign, the Anglican Foundation of Canada (AFC) has released its new Say Yes! to Kids Sunday liturgy and accompanying resources.
“The liturgy will provide a spiritual focal point for the SYTK movement,” says Dr. Scott Brubacher, Executive Director, AFC, “and will be a flexible resource that any church can use, whether it has an active campaign or not.”
The liturgy has been developed by a team of AFC’s clergy board directors from across Canada. It is hoped that Anglican parishes across Canada will join forces on Sunday, June 2, or another Sunday after Pentecost to pray for the health and well-being of young people in their churches, communities, and beyond.
Archbishop Anne Germond, Bishop of Algoma and Moosonee, Metropolitan of the Ecclesiastical Province of Ontario, and Vice-chair of AFC welcomes the liturgy, emphasizing that it is meant to be used with the permission of the Ordinary. “As a bishop I am pleased to have such a comprehensive, user-friendly liturgical resource... I especially love the Prayers of the People and the litany that invites us to hear God calling us to new forms of ministry with children and youth and the suggestions for involvement of children and youth in the liturgy.”
