Notes
"When Anglicans across Canada celebrate the third annual Jerusalem Sunday May 8 [2016], they will be able to share their experiences through social media, via an official Jerusalem Sunday Facebook page and a new Twitter hashtag, #JerusalemSunday, which are in the works, says Andrea Mann, director of global relations for the Anglican Church of Canada". "The 2013 General Synod approved the celebration of Jerusalem Sunday every year on the Sunday after Ascension Day, as a way of bringing the Anglican Church of Canada and the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem closer, both on the national and the local level. But Mann stressed that it also provides an avenue for more tangible support. 'Jerusalem Sunday is not only an opportunity for prayer and worship and study, but also a special offering, a financial offering that will go toward the medical ministries of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem', she said, noting that the diocese supports many health-care initiatives, not only in the West Bank and Gaza but also in Lebanon, Jordan and Israel".

Notes
The Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, accompanied by Andrea Mann, global relations coordinator for the General Synod, visited the Episcopal diocese of Jerusalem from 22-30 August 2009. The diocese is led by Bishop Suheil Dawani who has accepted an invitation from Archbishop Hiltz to attend the 2010 Canadian General Synod "to address the General Synod on the life and witness of the church in the holy land .... Part of that inevitably will touch on the political situation there". "The diocese has 27 parishes, 30 priests and 7,000 parishioners across Palestine, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon and Syria. 'Bishop Dawani's mindset is "There's room in Jerusalem for everyone; we just have to find a way for that to be a reality".'" The Primate and Andrea Mann also visited Gaza including time spent at the diocesan-run Al Ahli Arab Hospital and St. Philip's Anglican Church where he celebrated communion.

Special report: Journey to Jerusalem Sunday.
"'Does the world care that we're being pushed out of our land ?' This haunting question was posed over and over to Lisa Barry, Anglican Video's senior producer, by Palestinian Christians during a February [2014] trip to the Holy Land. Barry, along with Anglican Video's production manager Becky Boucher, cameraman Scott Brown and Andrea Mann, the church's global relations director, visited the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, which has 27 parishes spread across Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. The trip was intended to 'really listen, record and gather up the stories of the living stones of the diocese', and to develop resources for parishes to use for Jerusalem Sunday, which the Anglican Church of Canada celebrates for the first time on June 1 [2014], said Mann. The weeklong itinerary included meetings with the diocesan bishop Suheil Dawani, and diocesan staff, touring ministries in and around Jerusalem and in the Palestinian cities of Ramallah and Gaza and engaging with people involved in diocesan programs. The team also saw the effects of the protracted Israeli-Palestinian conflict". "Operating more than 30 institutions, the diocese employs about 1,500 people, schools 6,400 students and provides about 200 hospital beds".

Special report: Journey to Jerusalem Sunday.
"On June 1 [2-14], Canadian Anglicans will celebrate Jerusalem Sunday for the first time. The new annual observance come from General Synod's 2013 resolution to set aside the seventh Sunday of Easter, know as the Sunday after the Ascension, as a day to learn about the diocese of Jerusalem. A special collection will be requested in support of the far-flung diocese's ministries. 'The Anglican Church of Canada and the diocese of Jerusalem have been companions in mission for many years', explained Andrea Mann, the church's global relations director. 'Jerusalem Sunday is intended to lift up this relationship and celebrate the 'living stones' of the diocese -- Arab Christians and others serving in ministries of hospitality, education, health care and reconciliation in Jerusalem, Palestine, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria'."

"I would like to thank you for your feature on the Holy Land this month, 'Journey to Jerusalem Sunday' [anglicanjournal.com]. I spent my summer internship last year at St. George's Cathedral, Jerusalem, and viewing your videos of Jerusalem and the staff and community of St. George's brought back fond memories. I hope all Anglicans learn more about the Land of the Holy One so that their faith is strengthened and their eyes are opened to the needs and cries of the people there for justice, peace and compassion".

Notes
That the Anglican Church of Canada has taken steps to develop links with the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem is very positive ['Companions to deepen ties with Jerusalem', Jan. 2012, p. 7]. My hope is that many lively links of faith and action can be established. However, I didn't see any reference to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, now in its 64th year. I am convinced that resolution of this conflict has the same moral claim on us as the civil rights movement and I look for strong public statements from the national church in this regard. Failing this, we will find ourselves, along with our current federal government, on the wrong side of history". [Text of entire article.]
