"Michelle Taylor, Jeffrey Hooper and Nicolas Alexandre are the latest Anglican theological students who have decided that they want to learn and experience what it is like to 'be church' outside Canada.. The three are the latest participants of the Anglican Church of Canada's Theological Student International Internship Program, which places theological students in three-month internships with the church's overseas partners". Mr. Alexandre will be going to the Philippines in May 2009. Mr. Hooper, and his wife Michelle Taylor, left for the Church for Uganda in January. "Ms. Taylor, a veterinarian, assists another Canadian Anglican, Rev. Carolyn Langford, who has served the diocese of Central Buganda by lecturing at the diocesan university and developing a model farm".
"After visiting the Holy Land last summer , Archbishop Fred Hiltz made a commitment to deepen ties between the Anglican Church of Canada and the Episcopal diocese of Jerusalem. Now, theological student Kerri Brennan, who is the first Canadian to travel to the diocese as a part of the church's international theological internship program, will embody those strong ties.
Brennan has just completed her bachelor of theology degree at St. Paul's University in Ottawa and has applied to do her master of pastoral theology degree there.
During her three-month internship, she will 'stand as a witness as somebody pursuing ordination in a culture where women aren't able to do that yet'." [Text of entire article.]
