What is Red Wednesday?
Red Wednesday is an initiative of Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) to pray for, and draw attention to, Christians who suffer and are persecuted for their faith. Notre Dame in Paris; the British Houses of Parliament and the Colosseum in Rome, are some of the landmarks that have participated by lighting their facades in red. Since 2018, ACN Australia has joined commemorations around the world for Red Wednesday. Several Australian dioceses have participated in recent years including Sydney, Broken Bay, Brisbane, Hobart, Melbourne, Newcastle, Wagga Wagga and Perth. This year Red Wednesday will be held on Wednesday 22 November.
