Toronto, April 29, 1994 -- An Anglican bishop will help to consecrate a bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Latvia Abroad, signalling a step toward full communion of the Lutheran and Anglican churches.
On Sunday, May 1, Dean Elmars Rozitis of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Latvia will be consecrated bishop of that church, to serve in Canada. At the invitation of the Latvian Church, the Rt. Rev'd Arthur Brown, retired Suffragan Bishop of Toronto of the Anglican Church of Canada, will participate in the laying on of hands at the ceremony. Bishop Brown will be representing both Archbishop of Canterbury and the Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada. The Bishop of Stockholm, of the Church of Sweden, Dr. Henrik Svenungsson, will be the chief celebrant at the service, which will be held at St. Andrew's Lutheran church at 383 Jarvis St. in Toronto.
The participation of an Anglican bishop in the consecration of a Latvian Lutheran bishop marks the recognition of the close relationship which exists between our two churches, since we hold "the most fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith" in common.
In 1939, the Church of England reached an agreement with the Latvian and Estonian churches, which called for, among other things, the mutual participation in episcopal consecrations. Because of the circumstances of World War II and its political aftermath, it was not possible for the agreement to be acted on. In 1989, the Anglican Bishop of Gibraltar took part in the consecration of the Archbishop of Latvia. The Anglican Church of Canada is happy to share in the recognition given by the Church of England.
Anglican and Lutheran churches in many parts of the world have been engaged in a process of dialogue and co-operation which is hoped will result in the two churches affirming that they are in full communion with each other.
Although the Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada have not yet reached the level of agreement which the Church of England and the Church of Latvia have achieved, a process is underway which calls for full mutual recognition by 2001. The two Canadian churches reached an agreement in 1989 on eucharistic sharing, whereby members of one church may receive the sacrament in the other church. They are currently studying ways of mutually recognizing the ministries of clergy and bishops in each other's church.

Kenora, October 17, 1996 -- Canada's first aboriginal person to become a diocesan bishop is the Right Reverend Gordon Beardy, elected here Wednesday [16 October]. Bishop Beardy was elected on the sixth ballot from a field of six candidates.
Bishop Beady, 46 is a former Oji-Cree chief who has been suffragan bishop in the Diocese of Keewatin since September 1993. His election as the diocesan, or senior bishop, will be seen as significant by the church, especially by native Anglicans who make up a majority of the diocese.
"My first priority will be to listen to the people of the diocese, to hear what they have to say about the future of Keewatin. We will continue to work together as the Body of Christ," says Bishop Beardy.
The Diocese of Keewatin covers about 300,000 square miles in northern Ontario and Manitoba. It stretches from Rainy River and Fort Frances, in the south, up to Fort Severn and Churchill on the shores of Hudson's Bay. There are more than 50 parishes in the diocese, about 3/5 of them dotted across its northern regions, and served by non-stipendiary (unpaid), locally raised and educated, indigenous priests.
Bishop Beardy is among those who have given leadership to the training of native clergy. As a young man, he assisted his father, the Reverend Eliezer Beardy, with the translation of study materials from English into native languages. Later he became an instructor with the "Train an Indian Priest" (TAIP) program.
He was a Band Counsellor [i.e. Councillor] and, from 1983 to 1987, Band Chief, at Muskrat Dam, Ontario. A skilled political leader, together with the First Nations Council, he initiated economic development programs so successful that the small community was force to begin importing workers from neighbouring settlements.
In the church, Bishop Beardy has served in several capacities beyond parish and diocesan boundaries. He has been a member of the church's national executive council, and has served on the Primate's commission on evangelism.

Toronto, Feb. 12, 1994 -- The consecration of the Rev. Victoria Matthews as a suffragan bishop for the Diocese of Toronto today will "bring a certain completeness to ministry" in the Canadian Anglican Church, said the Most Rev. Percy O'Driscoll, the archbishop who will preside at the consecration. "Victoria will, I am sure, be a symbol of encouragement and strength to many women across Canada who are engaged in ministry".
Eighteen years after the first woman was ordained in the Anglican Church of Canada, Ms. Matthews -- Bishop Matthews after the service -- will become the first woman bishop in the Anglican Church of Canada, and only the fifth in the Anglican Communion worldwide.
Bishop Matthews will be consecrated at a 10:30 a.m. service at St. Paul's Anglican Church, 227 Bloor St. East, along with the Very Rev. Michael Bedford-Jones. Both priests were elected as suffragan bishops for the Diocese of Toronto at a synod last Novembers 19 [1993]. They will become part of a college of five bishops serving the diocese. With 219 parishes, Toronto is the most populous of the 30 Anglican dioceses in Canada.
Bishop Matthews will be assigned to the Credit Valley region of the diocese, said diocesan bishop, the Rt. Rev. Terence Finlay. Bishop Bedford-Jones will be assigned to the York-Scarborough region. In addition to specific area responsibilities, the two new bishops will share with the larger college in overall pastoral leadership of the diocese.
"Being the first woman bishop in Canada, Victoria's ministry will probably be closely scrutinized by some," said Bishop Finlay. "She has a strong personal faith and a compassion for others that will carry her through." He added that "both bishops bring considerable gifts to their new responsibilities. With all the attention being focussed on Victoria, Michael may be forgotten. That would be unfortunate, because he brings a spirituality and a quiet sense of humour that we all need."

Notes
A description of the small diocese of Cariboo which has only 22 clergy in 45 congregations serving 170,000 square kilometres. Clergy praise Bishop Jim Cruickshank for his role in the diocese and his efforts to "foster a sense of family and create aplace where people belong". "There is also an inclusiveness that sees every cleric in the diocese share some area of diocesan responsibility. In this way, Bishop Cruickshank says, Cariboo is managed from the bottom up. The bottom up approach is shared by the diocese's priests who encourage lay leadership".
