2015 Christian Gathering - June 20 - 11 a.m. - Ahuntsic Park - Montreal

MONTREAL, June 19, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - On June 20, 2015, hundreds of Christians of every right and denomination will gather at Ahuntsic Park, in solidarity with all the Christians around the world.

What is the gathering's purpose?

  • To encourage Quebec Christians to take their returning role in the public sphere more seriously and to show solidarity with Christians all over the world who are persecuted for their faith.
  • So that Christian values, the founding values of the Quebec identity, may continue to inspire personal and social choices.
  • Because Christians care about their heritage and feel the need to show it.
