The Rt. Rev. Leo Frade was invited to participate, together with the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Tegucigalpa and the Orthodox Archpriest of Honduras to bless the Monument of Christ of El Picacho placed on top of a mountain overlooking Tegucigalpa. "The Episcopal Church of Honduras celebrates this year 137 years of Anglican presence in Honduras, although its first bishop was elected only in 1978. Its recent growth makes it one of the fastest growing dioceses of the Episcopal Church".
In December 1995, Episcopal Presiding Bishop Edmond Browning and his wife Patti, visited the Episcopal dioceses of Colombia and Honduras. The Primate also met for two hours with the Roman Catholic Archbishop Oscar A. Rodriguez, in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
The Bishop of Honduras, preached on the kingship of Christ, his remarks set against the recent context of the devastating hurricane, devastation and death in Honduras. "We must work to reconstruct and renew our poor Honduras, knowing very well that our God still reigns even in the midst of desperation. That, even if we have been crucified and buried with Christ the King, we will be resurrected indeed. This is our firm hope -- that Christ the King still reigns in Honduras."
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Advent 2001. An editorial and series of short reports from different agencies and countries about family breakdown. "The articles in this newsletter tell of increased marriage and relationship breakdown, more children on the streets, more despair fuelling alcohol and drug abuse. Many refer to the root causes of poverty, the AIDS pandemic, and, of course, war ... But the picture is not all bleak. An article from Canada points out that a marriage breakdown may, in some cases, represent a new start, free from hidden violence and abuse. Many of the articles tell of vigorous efforts being made by churches and projects from all over the Anglican Communion to help the casualties of family breakdown".
Issue of IAFN Newsletter included as part of the Anglican World for Trinity 1999. A series of 11 short reports from different regions and countries describing the churches' response to the problem of prostitution. "Prostitution has a long history, and the attitude of the Church has ranged from this acceptance of `the oldest profession' as a necessary evil, to outright condemnation. As we approach the third millennium, there seems little doubt that both prostitution and trafficking in women and children are one the increase. It is a global problem. Political and economic pressures are fuelling the sex trade, sometimes in new areas". "The most vulnerable and abused of all are the children. As the articles from individuals and organisations working in Thailand, the Philippines, Africa, Hong Kong and South America make clear, child prostitution is flourishing in many countries. Increasing numbers of boys and young men are being involved, as well as girls and young women" (p. ).
