"Bishop Gregory Kerr-Wilson of the diocese of Qu'Appelle has been elected the new bishop for the diocese of Calgary. He will be installed Sept. 29 [2012] at Calgary's Cathedral Church of the Redeemer, and succeeds Bishop Derek Hoskin, who has retired. The election took place June 15 [2012] at St. Peter's Anglican Church in Calgary. In all, five candidates were considered for the position. Bishop Kerr-Wilson describes himself as an 'evangelical, charismatic Catholic with liberal and conservative tendencies'. He is focused on local leadership 'rather than simply thinking about survival', he says. 'The church's capital is its people and their faith'." [Text of entire article.]

"Last summer [2010], 32 downtown Winnipeg kids learned how to cultivate the earth. They used creation-centred biblical principles set out at a day camp run by St. Margaret's Anglican Church and A Rocha (The Rock) -- a Christian conservation and environmental group founded in Portugal three decades ago by a husband-and-wife team of Anglican priests. A Rocha Canada is based in coastal Surrey, B.C., and has a conservation site in the Pembina Valley, but its Winnipeg gardening mission, 'Just Growing' is rooted firmly on some of the needier streets of the city's downtown core. 'Our project here links people with food, community and creation', says Jennifer Kornelsen, a community organizer with A Rocha Canada and one of Just Growing's co-ordinators".

"After serving for five years as head of the Anglican diocese of Calgary, Bishop Derek Hoskin, announced his retirement effective Dec. 31 [2011]. Bishop Hoskin was elected in 2006 as the eighth bishop of the diocese of Calgary, which includes 20,000 Anglicans in 92 congregations in the southern part of Alberta. In a pastoral letter issued to members of his diocese, Bishop Hoskin said he decided to retire because 2012 marks the 40th year of his ministry in the Anglican Church of Canada".
