Notes
"In a colourful ceremony shown live on national television, the Most Revd. Gerald James Ian Ernest, was installed as 5th Archbishop of the Indian Ocean, in the presence of an overflow international ecumenical and interfaith congregation. The service took place on Sunday, 19 February [2006] in the historic Cathedral of St. James, Port Louis, Mauritius. Portions of the service were in English, French, Creole and Ny Baiboly". "On Saturday the bishops of the Province invited the visiting bishops to join them in part of their retreat, led by Roman Catholic Bishop Maurice Piat in the excellent new diocesan learning facility, the Training Centre for Ministries and Community Development. The centre is awaiting the arrival of a world-class theological library from the estate of the late Fr. John Slater of the Diocese of London, St. John's Wood Parish, sent from the Anglican Communion Office several weeks ago." Includes biographical information,

"The task group set up after the Primates' Gathering and Meeting in January [2016] to 'maintain conversation' met for the first time in September and stressed its determination to work together. But it acknowledges the process would take time and could not be rushed. The primates asked the Archbishop of Canterbury to appoint the group to restore relationships, rebuild mutual trust, heal the legacy of hurt and explore deep differences. Archbishop Welby presented the group's mandate to ACC 16 in Lusaka in April where it was received and affirmed. 'What we are trying to do here is mirror what we desire for the whole Communion', said the Coadjutor Bishop of Huron, Linda Nicholls. 'We are truing to practice in our engagement with each other what we long for in the wider Communion'. Archbishop Ian Ernest from the Province of the Indian Ocean, said exchanges within the group had been frank and open. 'What has come out very clearly is the level of transparency that we have in the group. We have been able to be open and speak openly about our differences', he said. 'We also recognise the richness of the Communion. And we all love our Communion -- that is what binds us together'. Reflecting on the diversity, Canon Rosemary Mbogo, the provincial secretary of the Anglican Church of Kenya, said there was no grouping within the Communion whose views would not be listened to. The Episcopal Church's Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry acknowledges that finding solutions would take time. 'Quick fixes aren't long-term solutions', he said. 'Long-term solutions require long-term work. We are talking about relationships. You don't build or renew or heal relationships overnight. So, we are going to take whatever time it takes -- but we are going to do it'." [Text of entire article.]
Full membership of the Task Group consists of: Presiding Bishop Michael Curry (Episcopal Church USA), Archbishop Ian Ernest (Indian Ocean), Archbishop Philip Freier (Anglican Church of Australia), Archbishop Ng Moon Hing (Province of South East Asia), Canon Rosemary Mbogo (Anglican Church of Kenya), Bishop Linda Nicholls (Anglican Church of Canada) and Bishop Paul Sarker (Church of Bangladesh). The Moderator of the Church of South India, Bishop Govada Dyvasirvadam, will not be taking part in the Task Group because of allegations he is facing in India. Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon, secretary general of the Anglican Communion, hosted the group and acts as secretary to it.

Notes
"Plans for a season of repentance and prayer across the Anglican Communion next year [2019] have been put forward by a task group set up after the Primates' Meeting in 2016. The season would be launched with the publication of a specific prayer and would run from Pentecost until late in 2019. The group, which met in London, England, in March [2018] said prayers would focus on individual provinces week by week. Materials to support the initiative will be gathered and distributed by the Anglican Communion Office. Archbishop Ian Ernest, from the Church of the Province of the Indian Ocean, said the season would be the Communion's gift to a world in pain. 'The world knows brokenness', he said. 'The Anglican Communion has had its struggles and its brokenness, too. So, this is our response: our belief that prayer will help us to grow and to love in spite of differences'. The task group, established at the request of primates, aims to restore relationships and rebuild mutual trust and responsibility across the Communion". [Text of entire article.]
