The Canadian Ecumenical Anti-Racism Network (CEARN) of the Canadian Council of Churches invites you to two days of ecumenical support and engagement in anti-racism in and through the churches.

The immensity of the racism across the country that has risen up and become bolder has affected Canadian churches and its members. How are churches responding and how can we do more to actively respond in faithful ways?

CEARN is offering two days of focused conversation and opportunities for concrete action.

Participate in one or both evenings.

Wednesday, November 2

“Sharing, Solidarity, and Building Community”

A time of letting go, letting be, and letting begin. Framed by a time of liturgy, participants will have the opportunity to pray together, share where they and their churches are in their past and present anti-racism journey, share stories of success, support one another, and build anti-racist community across the country.

Thursday, November 3

“Sharing, Solidarity, and Anti-Racism Action”A time of acting together on areas of anti-racism in churches that will make a difference. Participants will have the opportunity to discern and choose an area in which to collaborate, focus their energies and passions, and develop action strategies together.
