Aid to the Church in Need, a pontifical charity designated Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2018 as Red Wednesday in Canada: a day dedicated to drawing attention to persecuted Christians throughout the world.
Currently, 200 million of the world's Christians are unable to freely live out their faith. They suffer from oppression or persecution. To raise awareness of this oppression, the Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) #RedWednesday is an initiative aimed at highlighting the persecution and injustice suffered by Christians, while promoting respect and tolerance between people of different faith traditions.
Thank you to everyone who helped make Red Wednesday 2018 such a success. Over 50 parishes, schools and religious communities in the Diocese of Calgary helped bring attention to the persecution of Christians across the globe.
If you are interested in assisting with the coordination of Red Wednesday 2019, please contact Theodoric or Kimberly at the Diocese of Calgary: 403-218-5501.
