Peace Sunday 2019

Peace Sunday 2019

MCC invites congregations to observe Peace Sunday on November 10, 2019 – close to Remembrance Day – or another appropriate Sunday.

Peace Sunday is an occasion to preach, teach, reflect upon and witness to the gospel of peace as revealed in Jesus Christ. This year’s Peace Sunday packet, Come and Eat focuses on the theme of peacemaking through food justice. This packet is intended to help you and your congregation plan a Peace Sunday worship service, as well as related educational, advocacy and peace witness activities.

Peace Sunday 2017

Praying for peace

To clasp the hands in prayer is the beginning of an uprising against the disorder of the world. 

— Karl Barth (1886-1968)

MCC invites congregations to observe Peace Sunday on November 12, 2017---close to Remembrance Day---or another appropriate Sunday.

Remembrance Day is a time when our country focuses attention on Canada’s military history and the sacrifice of Canadians who gave their lives in war. For Anabaptist churches, it is a time to remember that followers of Jesus are called to be people of peace.

Government Communications

MCC Canada communicates regularly with the Government of Canada on matters of policy. The Ottawa Office documents all written communication sent directly by MCC Canada, as well as many of the letters sent by partners or coalitions that MCC Canada supports. The following list is intended to provide an overview of this important dimension of our work.

Ottawa Office

The Ottawa Office is MCC’s voice to the Canadian government, advocating for policies that support our work of relief, development and peacebuilding.

We also inform Canadians about political issues and how they can get involved.

Some of our work includes:


In order to do our work of relief, development and peacebuilding, it’s important that MCC addresses policies that contribute to poverty and injustice. Advocacy is how we do that.

Our advocacy work is rooted in the understanding that we are called by God to be a voice with and for the poor, oppressed and marginalized. We take our inspiration from the biblical witness of Moses, Esther, John the Baptist, the prophets and Jesus himself.
