The following was received into diocesan offices to share with all of our churches. If you are interested, the deadline is 5/25 to send a two minute video to the email address below.
Dear Diocese of Pennsylvania,
Greetings from St. Saviour’s Anglican Church in Riga! On the 27th of May, we will be participating in Latvia’s yearly "Baznīcu nākts" (Night of Churches) event, where churches throughout the country are open all day and host special concerts, lectures, discussions, exhibitions, and prayers. Since we are the only Anglican church here in Latvia, we like to try to represent other Episcopal/Anglican churches from throughout the world in our exhibitions, which is why I am kindly asking you to please forward this message to the different churches of your diocese.
This year, we are asking for churches around the world to send us short 1-2 minute videos with greetings from the people of that church. I will be putting together an interactive map of the churches where all of the videos can be watched, and on the night of the event we will have a special projector screen that shows all of the videos to our guests who come in and out of the church. This map will also be available for people around the world to enjoy, and have a snapshot of what all of these churches were like in the year 2023.
The video can be made however each church likes! Churches are welcome to tell something about their congregation, show their church building, sing a song, say a special prayer — it is totally up to them what they would like to make. The most important thing is that we are able to show many special churches to people both here in Latvia and throughout the world. We do ask though that videos are kept to a maximum of 2 minutes.
Videos and any text that you should be included with it in the description and on the map page can be sent to email@example.com. Once each church has been added to the map, each church will be sent the link so that they can see their video and all the other churches as part of this project. We ask that churches please try their best to send the videos before the 25th of May.
Thank you in advance for your help, and we wish you a blessed weekend!
