IEAB in solidarity with the Japanese People 

São Paulo, march 11th de 2011.

To the bishops, clergy and people of the Church in Japan (Nippon Sei Ko Kai),

Greetings in Christ Jesus!

“Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Psalm 124, 8

On behalf of the Igreja Episcopal Anglicana do Brasil, I would like to stand in solidarity and prayer with the Japanese people in this time of calamity due to an earthquake which brought destruction and death.

We have followed news stories coming from Japan with anxiety and despair. Our Church offers prayers for you that you may recover quickly from this catastrophe. The pain which you all feel is, on a different level, also felt by us.

Our faith communities, especially this Sunday, will offer prayers for all people affected by this catastrophe in Japan.

God have mercy on us and save us from every evil!


The Rev. Arthur Cavalcante

Provincial Secretary of IEAB
