All are invited to send in videos of their church communities singing the hymn “Silent Night” on or before the first Sunday of Advent, November 28. All videos that are uploaded to the Anglican Church of Canada’s YouTube site by December 14 will be included in a documentary to be posted online by December 25—a special Christmas gift from the Anglican Church of Canada.
Singers are also encouraged to each donate a toonie to support Anglican military chaplains who minister to the women and men of the Canadian Forces.
The model for this project—the 2008 Amazing Grace Project—was a resounding success. Thousands of Canadian Anglicans sang and recorded themselves in downtown cathedrals, seniors’ homes, and remote outports. Over 500 videos were sent in and all were included in a documentary, Amazing Together. The project also raised over $95,000, now being used for suicide prevention in northern Canada.
