Dr. Peter Jepson-Young, a physician with AIDS, told about 125 people that he was impressed that the Anglican Church would sponsor a conference on AIDS. "I think (the event) sends out a message that the church cares and is prepared to get involved, Dr. Jepson-Young said. "Rev. John Bailey, rector of St. Martin's Church, which arranged the conference, said he wanted to change people's image of the church. "I felt it was important not only to raise awareness about AIDS, but also to make a public statement that the church is here to serve those in need, not to judge them".
