An educator and priest with broad experience in Canadian ecumenical affairs has been appointed to the Anglican Church of Canada's ecumenical office.
The Reverend Alyson Barnett-Cowan, Co-Director of the Henry Budd Christian Training Centre in The Pas, Manitoba, will take up the position of Ecumenical Assistant to the General Secretary on April 15, 1991.
Ms. Barnett-Cowan is a Vice President of the Canadian Council of Churches and a member of the Council's Faith and Witness Commission. She has been a participant in the Anglican/Lutheran International Consultation on "Episcope" and a member of the Canadian Anglican/Roman Catholic Dialogue. She is the author of the Anglican Church's response to "Baptism, Eucharist and Ministry" in "Churches Respond to BEM, Vol II" (Faith and Order Paper 132, WCC, 1986) and further developed her work on this theme while earning a Master of Theology degree at Trinity College, Toronto, in 1987.
Ms. Barnett-Cowan, who has been a teacher and guidance counsellor as well as a parish priest, has been co-director of the Henry Budd Centre, since 1983. She teaches a variety of bible, theology and pastoral courses at the Centre, which provides theological education and training for ministry in the North.
In her new position, Ms. Barnett-Cowan will work with Archdeacon David Woeller, General Secretary, to represent the Anglican Church in ecumenical and inter-faith concerns. She will provide staff support to the Inter-Church and Inter-Faith Relations Committee, of which she has been a member since 1986.

Notes
"Anglicans concerned about the draft Anglican Covenant have formed a new international coalition. About 1,000 strong, they appear to mean business. 'This isn't some sort of ecclesiastical Tea Party', says the Rev. Malcolm French, the Canadian spokesperson for the No Anglican Covenant Coalition. Formation of the anti-covenant coalition was announced in early November. The group aims to promote discussion of both the pros and the cons of the draft Anglican Covenant" (p. 1). "In June [2010] the Anglican Church of Canada's General Synod approved study of the proposed covenant and requested materials to support that study. Through French, the coalition has requested that the national church develop materials that present the skeptics' view of the proposed covenant as well as the positive view" (p. 1, 6). The coalition's English moderator, the Rev. Dr. Lesley Fellows has vowed to oppose the covenant in Church of England diocesan synods and the next meeting of the General Synod. The Rev. Canon Alyson Barnett-Cowan, the Anglican Communion's director for Unity, Faith and Order, said "Absolutely, there should be a debate in all the provinces".
