Dear Leaders and Youth Re: COVID-19
Our thoughts and prayers are with you as well as with government leaders, medical workers, grocery store workers and other essential workers in our community at this uncertain time.
Over the past month, members of the executive for the 2020 CLAY Gathering National Planning Committee from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) and the Anglican Church of Canada (ACC) have been monitoring updates as coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to escalate.
After much discernment, the planning team shares that CLAY, originally scheduled for August 20-23, 2020, will be postponed to August 19-22, 2021. The event will still be held at the Southern Alberta Institute for Technology (SAIT) in Calgary, Alberta. To read more, click here.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns at this time.
Blessings to you,
Tammy Kirkwood, Krystle Elaine Plant, Bishop Larry

The Synod of Alberta and the Territories is challenged, assisted and enriched by the youth in congregations. To support and highlight this important element of our constituency, a biennial gathering hosts the young people from all congregations and a network of youth leaders is encouraged. Information on these ministries may be found in separate pages under this heading.
