Message to Canadians from Religious Leaders in Canada in Response to COVID-19

As we practice self-isolation to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in our community, religious leaders and organizations across Canada have prepared a message entitled "Hope, Gratitude and Solidarity: A Message to Canadians from Religious Leaders in Canada in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic". 

The message has been endorsed by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), and the 25 member Churches of the Canadian Council of Churches, together with the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, the Canadian Rabbinic Caucus, the Canadian Council of Imams, the Hindu Federation of Canada, the World Sikh Organization of Canada, and many other faith representatives and religious organizations, some of whom are gathered through the Canadian Interfaith Conversation.

The English and French PDF versions of the message are attached:
