"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.]

"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".

"The 100-page report, 'A survey conducted for the Book of Alternative Services Evaluation Commission', is available from the Anglican Book Centre for $8.99. The Commission had earlier published 'Thinking about The Book of Alternative Services: A Discussion Primer' (also available from ABC at $8.99). Its focus is a theological evaluation of the BAS. 'This survey of the use and attitudes to the BAS by a variety of Anglicans is one of the ways in which the Evaluation Commission is fulfilling its mandate to consult with the Church', said John Webster, acting chair. 'The detailed results will be a significant factor in drawing up our report and recommendations to the 1995 General Synod'." [Text of entire article.]
