"Deacons from Dallas (U.S.A.), Argentina, Uruguay and Cuba met with deacons and lay ministers from Peru for a week long conference at the end of April and beginning of May . The purpose was to enrich and encourage deacons in their office and ministry and to promote the 'permanent diaconate' in the Diocese of Peru". "The Diocese of Peru aims to encourage and promote the 'permanent diaconate' as a significant and central ministry. The Diocese of Dallas, through its Bishop, the Rt. Rev. James Stanton, has played an important role in developing the permanent diaconate , and this has been a major source of inspiration and encouragement to Bishop William [Godfrey]". Includes photo.

As part of the 50th Anniversary education goal and justgeneration.ca, PWRDF plans to offer the gift of 50 strengthened new young leaders to the church. 50 youth (ages 16 - 30) will be given opportunities -- through partner visits and cross-cultural learning opportunities -- to deepen their faith and their understanding of development, relief, refugee and global justice issues. It's an opportunity for partners to help shape Canadian Anglican leaders for PWRDF, the Anglican Church and Canadian society for the next 50 years and beyond". "The 50 Leaders project will unfold over 5 years and more detailed plans including criteria and eligibility will be available later this year".
