Notes
"Peter Coffin, Anglican Bishop Ordinary to the Canadian Armed Forces, has announced his retirement [as of March 2016]". "The primate appointed him to the position of Anglican bishop ordinary in November 2004. Coffin's task as bishop ordinary included serving as the Anglican member of the Interfaith Committee on Canadian Military Chaplaincy (ICCMC), which represents the chaplaincy to the federal government". Bishop Coffin visited serving troops in Afghanistan during his term of office. "The Anglican Military Ordinariate (AMO) chaplains provide pastoral support to members of the Canadian Armed Forces at home and abroad, while pastoral care for chaplains is the main responsibility of the bishop ordinary. Hiltz said Coffin worked hard to 'get provisions in place that the AMO needs for the election of a new bishop ordinary'. The first election of an Anglican bishop ordinary will be held March 5 [2016], followed by an installation ceremony at Christ Church Cathedral in Ottawa May 28 [2016]".

Notes
Part of: Special Report: The Anglican Military Ordinariate. Cmdr. Rick Durrett, who is now Navy Command Chaplain in Ottawa, was a naval officer before he was ordained as a priest in the Anglican Church of Canada. "'God was preparing me with all these different experiences', he says, adding that being a naval officer allowed him to have first-hand knowledge of the stresses personnel faced. 'It was basically plug and play'. Durrett finds the next of kin notifications particularly challenging". "'People need the presence of a chaplain to remember the presence of God. That's what I was able to bring'. Durrett meets people who have never been churched every day. 'It has never occurred to them that the spiritual aspect of life is important', he says. 'We are modeling a lifestyle, showing them a different way to think about things. Like St. Francis [of Assisi] said: 'Preach the gospel at all times. If necessary, use words'."
