"This is only the third time that this large amount has been awarded in any one year by the AF -- made possible through bequests, memberships, wills, trusts and capital fund interest.

Each parish in the three Newfoundland dioceses has taken out a membership. ... Every diocese in Canada now has members, the newest being the Arctic".

Among the keynote speakers was Canon John Erb, Executive Director of the Anglican Foundation. Since 1993,Anglican Foundation awards in the diocese have totaled approximately $315,000 in grants and low interest loans. A number of grants have also been given in support of theological students". Fiona Brownlee reported that: "Canon John Erb focused on our theme of 'Living Stones' and helped us to explore what it means to be a living stone in the church of God ... 'stones live through the changes from outside of them, being transformed into possible building stones, gem stones, marking stones, corner stones. No natural element remains the same, it may take centuries but they are transformed. Living stones are not only alive in themselves, but also alive to the forces around them, we must be helped to experience that liveliness .. we need to be open to the transformation God is calling us to experience'."
