TORONTO– Liberal Multiculturalism critic Jim Karygiannis made the following statement today on Orthodox Christmas:
“On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our Parliamentary Caucus, I am delighted to extend my warmest greetings to all Eastern Orthodox Christian Canadians, as you gather to celebrate Christmas.
For Christians of the Eastern Catholic and Orthodox faiths, this is a time to gather with family and friends to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. This joyous time of year is also an opportunity to give thanks for our blessings, and to help and keep in our thoughts and prayers those in Canada and throughout the world who are in need.
We hope you enjoy a beautiful celebration of peace, hope and love in the presence of family and friends. Please accept our heartfelt regards and best wishes for a very Merry Christmas.”
