Green Party Statement on Orthodox Easter

OTTAWA  – The Green Party of Canada extends warm greetings to Orthodox Christians in Canada, and around the world celebrating Pascha, the Orthodox Easter holiday today. Pascha is the holiest of holidays in the Orthodox Christian faith.

“While families, friends and communities traditionally gather to celebrate this important holiday, this year’s celebrations will once again be tempered by pandemic restrictions,” said Green Party Leader Annamie Paul. 

“Nevertheless, we hope that they will be able to find other ways to connect with loved ones and celebrate the spirit of kindness and renewal. 

“On behalf of everyone at the Green Party we wish Orthodox Christians everywhere a Happy Easter!”
