The Annual Christian Leadership Dinner is another event organized by the Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast Group as a part of the National Prayer Breakfast festivities. It has been taking place almost as long as the breakfast itself. The purpose of the dinner was originally to extend a courtesy to those travelling from out of town to attend the Breakfast. It has now evolved into an event that compliments the National Prayer Breakfast.

35th Christmas Dinner: The Certainty of Uncertainty – Don and Fay Simmonds

November 26, 2018

Uncertainty strikes all of us. For Don and Fay Simmonds it came in the words “liver failure.” They spoke about their life and death battle and their search for certainty in life’s most uncertain moments. There is much to celebrate!

The annual Christmas Dinner is the highlight of the Christian Embassy’s year. This year we welcomed over 200 diplomats, parliamentarians and business leaders, representing 55 nations.

The festive evening allows busy leaders and their spouses to relax, network and enjoy special music and meaningful reminders of the season. Diplomats appreciate what is often a first opportunity to experience Canadian Christmas traditions.
