"North Muskoka Pioneer Parish [in the diocese of Algoma], through St. John the Baptist Church, Ravenscliffe applied for a grant from the Fulford Trust for a Children's Music Project. The grant allowed the church to host a monthly Sunday afternoon family hour with puppets, making the word of God available through music and skits. This became a family programme with kids learning to do the puppeteering and the simple songs. It has been a huge success and new kids are coming to share in the programme. At Christmas they put a float in the Huntsville Santa Claus parade that attracted all sorts of people to their church programme".
"A.E.J. Fulford established a trust in 1973 that has added joy to the life of the Anglican Church across this country. Young people at church music camps have celebrated the joy of the trust; organ students have played to the beauty of the trust, choirs have travelled across this country and into Europe singing gratefully for the trust; and church music has been published because of the trust. Since its founding the trust has administered grants totalling $226,800. Mr. Fulford established this trust for the 'encouragement, promotion, development and enrichment of Church music in the Anglican Church of Canada.' Since its beginning the trust has given grants in support of diocesan summer schools in church music, summer choir camps for young people, provided bursaries and scholarships to organ students pursuing a career in church music, as well as providing grants to assist in the commissioning of new church music in celebration of parochial and diocesan occasions. The trust is also interested in new ideas and programmes to enable small and rural churches to develop musical programmes which will enhance worship and encourage smaller congregations."

"'In Peace and Friendship' is a response to those who faith or conscience compels them to understand more deeply the struggles of Aboriginal peoples in Canada. It provides an opportunity, particularly for non-Aboriginal people, to open themselves to a new perspective by exploring a relationship with the original inhabitants of this land that recognizes their unique nationhood. .... [It] is an educational resource for groups of youth or adults, within a congregation, a regional church body or as an open community event. There are five sessions. This resource could be used as a series of weekly workshops for a local group or linked together for a 2-day conference or retreat. The first and fifth sessions assume a Christian perspective". -- p. i.
