A Porvoo Jubilee Tribute From Finland

Among the many greetings and congratulations received by the Queen during her Golden Jubilee celebrations is a unique letter demonstrating the unity of the Porvoo Copmmunion.

Revd Tuomas Mäkipää from St Nicholas Anglican church in the Finnish capital of Helsinki says “At our meeting with the International Department of the Finnish Church House last March, representatives of the Finnish Church asked if a joint letter to the Queen would be possible. The result can be seen below and our local initiative has been warmly supported by Her Majesty’s Ambassador in Helsinki. It is good to know that although we are at a distance from the British based celebrations we united Christians can offer our own contribution.”
