Idling taxis, hot dog stands and four smiling Anglican priests in full regalia. That was the sight greeting sleepy-eyed commuters leaving Union Station during yesterday morning’s rush hour.

Sporting long, damask robes of pearly white or sky blue, heads topped with pointed bishop’s hats, the clergy passed out cards encouraging the Bay Street hordes to make their way to a house of worship this Sunday.

“You invite people to baseball games or to the movies,” said Archbishop of Toronto Colin Johnson. “Traditionally, we’ve not been good at inviting people to come to church.”

Johnson oversees 211 parishes in the area. Although the foursome represent the congregations of the Golden Horseshoe, Johnson stressed that they were encouraging Torontonians of all faiths to reconnect with their own traditions.
