April 11, 1994 For immediate release
Toronto -- Anglicans in Ontario will have a chance to go "live and interactive" with the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. George Carey, on Sunday, June 19, when Archbishop Carey participates in a public television forum during his first visit to Canada.
The one-hour public forum with Archbishop Carey, hosted by Valerie Pringle, will feature studio audience interaction with the archbishop. The midsection of the forum will be broadcast live on the Baton Broadcast System (BBS) from 10 to 10:30 a.m., during which the archbishop will field phone-in comments and questions from viewers across the province.
"This is the first time Dr. Carey has visited Canada since he was enthroned as the 103rd Archbishop of Canterbury in 1991," said General Synod Communications Director Doug Tindal. "We want to take advantage of this encounter with him to raise the issue of faith questions in the larger society. Most exciting for us is that everyone watching the program will have the possibility of speaking with the archbishop directly -- as well as to one another -- about what really matters to them concerning their faith."
He said many parishes are making plans to watch the broadcast together as a group and to continue among themselves the discussion raised in the television forum. Some will view it live, as an adjunct to regular Sunday worship. Others will tape it for later viewing and discussion.
Archbishop Carey is in Canada to participate in the Christian Festival in Hamilton, ON, from June 23 to 26 [1994]. While there, he will lead Bible studies, make a major address, and lead a workshop on issues of the day. This is the fourth major ecumenical festival of its type to be held in Canada since the first one was organized in Ottawa in 1982. Others have been held in Calgary and Halifax.
In a brief tour before the festival, the archbishop will visit Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City and Magog.
The following BBS stations will carry the broadcast, live from 10 to 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 19, 1994: CFPL London, CJOH Ottawa, MCTV Sudbury and CFTO Toronto.

Enclosure: Biography of the Archbishop of Canterbury
A Brief Biographical Sketch : The Most Rev. Right Honourable, George Carey 103rd Archbishop of Canterbury
The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. George Carey, is the working-class son of a hospital porter from East End London, a high-school dropout, and a "keen supporter of the Arsenal Football Club". He had been a bishop for less than three years when he was chosen to succeed Robert Runcie as the 103rd Archbishop of Canterbury, "first among equals" in the worldwide Anglican Communion.
Born Nov. 13, 1935, George Carey did not become a Christian until 1953, after his younger brother introduced him to the local Anglican church. He left school the same year, without graduating, and found work as an office boy. Later, while doing compulsory British military service in Iraq, he made a decision to seek ordination to the Anglican priesthood when his stint in the Royal Air Force was done.
After intense make-up study, he was allowed into the University of London where he earned a bachelor of divinity degree in 1962. He was ordained the same year. Archbishop Carey later went on to earn a Masters in Divinity and a PhD, and to write 10 books on theological issues.
Since ordination, Archbishop Carey has served as a parish priest, a lecturer in theology, prison chaplain, university chaplain and military chaplain, and the principal of Trinity College, Bristol. He also served on a number of national church and academic boards.
In 1988, Dr. Carey became the Bishop of Bath and Wells, and in 1991 he was the surprise choice to become Archbishop of Canterbury. As such he is considered the spiritual leader and focus of unity within the worldwide Anglican Communion. The Anglican Church of Canada is one of 35 self-governing churches which make up the communion of 70 million Anglicans in 160 countries around the world.
The Archbishop of Canterbury is automatically president of Lambeth Conference, a gathering of all bishops of the Anglican Communion every 10 years, and president of the Anglican Consultative Council. He is described as "primus inter pares" (first among equals) among the archbishops of the member churches within the Anglican Communion.
Although he is considered an Evangelical within the Anglican tradition, Archbishop Carey has repeatedly expressed his commitment to a vision of the Anglican Communion that is able to embrace a wide range of theological styles. Some of his recent statements regarding the larger society have expressed a commitment to green ecology and support for the poor and disadvantaged.
Archbishop Carey is married and has four grown children and two grandchildren.

"It's official -- tablets will replace binders at General Synod this summer. Council of General Synod (CoGS) approved the use of tablets at General Synod, after hearing presentations March 10 [2016] by planning committee chair Dean Peter Wall and General Synod web manager Brian Bukowski". "Since the tablets will be rented, delegates will return them after General Synod. However, Bukowski said, delegates will also be able to download the app onto other devices -- their own laptop or desktop computers, or phones, for example -- and sync it with the app loaded onto the tablets. This way, he said, they'll be able to keep all the documents from General Synod after they leave". "As demonstrated by Bukowski, the app features a map of the hotel, with a dot indicating where the delegate is supposed to be at any one time during General Synod. The app also allows delegates to see all the resolutions, updated every 90 seconds with their status -- amended, approved and so on, he said. General Synod attendees will also be able to send messages to one another, and even instantly share photos, he said".

"General Synod can be expected to vote in July [2019] on a proposed 'gradual exit strategy from print' for the 'Anglican Journal' and other church print publications, as well as a revised mandate for the Journal that might not include editorial independence, following a series of votes by Council of General Synod (CoGS)" (p. 1). "One of the concerns the report expresses about printing the newspapers is the cost, including postage. Postage, the report states, has been rising in recent years, and in 2017 total postage expenses reached $920,000. .... The net cost per subscriber of producing ten issues per year of the 'Anglican Journal' was $5.28 in 2017, the report adds. The fourth motion deals with the 'Anglican Journal's' mandate and governance. It calls on CoGS to instruct the working group to complete, before the next meeting of CoGS in March [2019], an editorial mandate and set of journalistic guidelines for the newspaper, taking into account views expressed at the current meeting of CoGS" (p. 9). "The fifth motion calls on CoGS to ask the group to prepare an amendment, to be brought before General Synod in July [2019], to the section of the national church canons dealing with the Anglican Journal Committee -- currently the newspaper's publisher" (p. 9). "Also at CoGS, Meghan Kilty, the Anglican Church of Canada's communications director, presented a report to CoGS outlining a new communications strategy for the church .... It envisages ... moving 'to a single digital channel for stories and news about the church'" (p. 9).
