Keeping up a long-standing tradition, Archbishop Linda Nicholls, Primate of the Anglican Church in Canada, delivered her New Year’s Day homily at Christ Church Cathedral in Ottawa on the morning of Jan. 1, 2024. Our full story on her address is available as a part of our January issue.

Another cherished part of that tradition is for clergy and all those who attend and take part in the service to gather in the Cathedral’s Great Hall afterwards for a festive reception and fellowship, starting the new year off with warmth and cheer no matter what the winter weather is outside. Sharing these smiles with you, Perspective wishes all our readers a happy and blessed 2024.
