TORONTO, Oct. 12, 2004
Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, becomes the first Canadian national church leader to engage members of the church and the public in conversation through the internet tomorrow.
The first of regular segments entitled +Andrew: Conversations with the Primate will be posted to the Anglican church's national web site www.anglican.ca. It will be reachable from the web site's home page and viewable with easily available software. The webcast can also be downloaded and saved to CD for distribution.
The logo designed for the webcast features the primatial cross which is carried in front of the Canadian primate in formal ceremonies and Archbishop Hutchison's signature. The "+" sign in front of his name is the traditional signature used by archbishops and bishops. Though the signature might informally be read as "Plus Andrew", the more formal reading in this case would be "Archbishop Andrew".
The webcast which will be posted tomorrow is approximately 12.5 minutes in length and features Archbishop Hutchison speaking from his office on what he considers to be his top priorities as he begins his primacy. Viewers may respond to the Primate through e-mail by writing to Andrew@national.anglican.ca.
Archbishop Hutchison, former Bishop of Montreal and Archbishop of the Ecclesiastical Province of Canada, was elected Primate by the Anglican General Synod (the church's highest governing and legislative body) meeting in St. Catharines, Ont., last June [2004].
Archbishop Hutchison hopes to tape segments for the web regularly at the rate of about one every three weeks. Each web cast will be announced in advance.

TORONTO, Oct. 8, 2004
Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, speaks to Anglicans about the issues that matter most to him at the outset of his term of office in a webcast to be posted on the church's national website (www.anglican.ca) Wednesday, Oct. 13 [2004].
The webcast, entitled +Andrew: Conversations with the Primate, will be the first of regular such conversations between the Anglican Primate and members of the church.
Archbishop Hutchison, former Bishop of Montreal and Metropolitan of the Ecclesiastical Province of Canada, was elected Primate, or national leader of the Anglican Church at its General Synod last June [2004]. He is a new Primate, he notes, at the outset of the implementation of a new plan for the work and mission of the church.
High on his list of priorities, Archbishop Hutchison says in his webcast, is better communication at all levels of the church and with society at large. He notes that he has already heard many people talking about "disconnects" between General Synod at the national level and local churches, between the church and society and society and between different parts of the church.
The webcasts, he says, are one instrument he will be using to attempt to "bring more people into conversation".
The webcasts will consist of downloadable segments which will be posted at www.anglican.ca and which people may view whenever they wish and as often as they wish. A few days after a segment has been posted, a transcript will be made available for people who wish the text of the Primate's remarks.
People wishing to respond to Archbishop Hutchison or to ask him questions may do so be emailing andrew@national.anglican.ca. In subsequent segments, Archbishop Hutchison will engage members of the public and of the church by responding to these emails.
Archbishop Hutchison becomes the first national church leader in Canada to use the power of the Internet to speak to members of his church and the world.

Toronto -- Anglicans in Ontario will have a chance to go "live and interactive" with the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. George Carey, on Sunday, June 19, when Archbishop Carey participates in a public television forum during his first visit to Canada.
The one-hour public forum with Archbishop Carey, hosted by Valerie Pringle, will feature studio audience interaction with the archbishop. The midsection of the forum will be broadcast live on the Baton Broadcast System (BBS) from 10 to 10:30 a.m., during which the archbishop will field phone-in comments and questions from viewers across the province.
"This is the first time Dr. Carey has visited Canada since he was enthroned as the 103rd Archbishop of Canterbury in 1991," said General Synod Communications Director Doug Tindal. "We want to take advantage of this encounter with him to raise the issue of faith questions in the larger society. Most exciting for us is that everyone watching the program will have the possibility of speaking with the archbishop directly -- as well as to one another -- about what really matters to them concerning their faith."
He said many parishes are making plans to watch the broadcast together as a group and to continue among themselves the discussion raised in the television forum. Some will view it live, as an adjunct to regular Sunday worship. Others will tape it for later viewing and discussion.
Archbishop Carey is in Canada to participate in the Christian Festival in Hamilton, ON, from June 23 to 26 [1994]. While there, he will lead Bible studies, make a major address, and lead a workshop on issues of the day. This is the fourth major ecumenical festival of its type to be held in Canada since the first one was organized in Ottawa in 1982. Others have been held in Calgary and Halifax.
In a brief tour before the festival, the archbishop will visit Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, Quebec City and Magog.
The following BBS stations will carry the broadcast, live from 10 to 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 19, 1994: CFPL London, CJOH Ottawa, MCTV Sudbury and CFTO Toronto.

Enclosure: Biography of the Archbishop of Canterbury
A Brief Biographical Sketch : The Most Rev. Right Honourable, George Carey 103rd Archbishop of Canterbury
The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. George Carey, is the working-class son of a hospital porter from East End London, a high-school dropout, and a "keen supporter of the Arsenal Football Club". He had been a bishop for less than three years when he was chosen to succeed Robert Runcie as the 103rd Archbishop of Canterbury, "first among equals" in the worldwide Anglican Communion.
Born Nov. 13, 1935, George Carey did not become a Christian until 1953, after his younger brother introduced him to the local Anglican church. He left school the same year, without graduating, and found work as an office boy. Later, while doing compulsory British military service in Iraq, he made a decision to seek ordination to the Anglican priesthood when his stint in the Royal Air Force was done.
After intense make-up study, he was allowed into the University of London where he earned a bachelor of divinity degree in 1962. He was ordained the same year. Archbishop Carey later went on to earn a Masters in Divinity and a PhD, and to write 10 books on theological issues.
Since ordination, Archbishop Carey has served as a parish priest, a lecturer in theology, prison chaplain, university chaplain and military chaplain, and the principal of Trinity College, Bristol. He also served on a number of national church and academic boards.
In 1988, Dr. Carey became the Bishop of Bath and Wells, and in 1991 he was the surprise choice to become Archbishop of Canterbury. As such he is considered the spiritual leader and focus of unity within the worldwide Anglican Communion. The Anglican Church of Canada is one of 35 self-governing churches which make up the communion of 70 million Anglicans in 160 countries around the world.
The Archbishop of Canterbury is automatically president of Lambeth Conference, a gathering of all bishops of the Anglican Communion every 10 years, and president of the Anglican Consultative Council. He is described as "primus inter pares" (first among equals) among the archbishops of the member churches within the Anglican Communion.
Although he is considered an Evangelical within the Anglican tradition, Archbishop Carey has repeatedly expressed his commitment to a vision of the Anglican Communion that is able to embrace a wide range of theological styles. Some of his recent statements regarding the larger society have expressed a commitment to green ecology and support for the poor and disadvantaged.
Archbishop Carey is married and has four grown children and two grandchildren.

TORONTO, April 7, 2005 -- In the next segment of the webcast +Andrew: Conversations with the Primate Andrew Hutchison reflects on a recent visit to Cuba and on the special relationship that has evolved between the Canadian and Cuban Anglican churches.
During his first visit to Cuba as Primate this winter, Archbishop Hutchison chaired a meeting of [the] Metropolitan Council of Cuba, preached in Spanish at the opening service of a diocesan synod and visited an ecumenical seminary in Matanza where there are 12 Anglican students.
He also met with the Canadian ambassador to Cuba, with the Cuban Roman Catholic Cardinal and with the government secretary in charge of religious affairs.
Archbishop Hutchison says he found a strong, vibrant church, enlivened by a deep, historical relationship with the Canadian Anglican Church.
+Andrew: Conversations with the Primate is a communications tool Archbishop Hutchison is using to speak to rank-and-file church members in an informal way and to solicit comments and feedback from viewers. The webcasts are taped and produced by Anglican Video and financially assisted by the Anglican Foundation.
The webcasts can be accessed from the home page of the General Synod website (www.anglican.ca) where they can be viewed or downloaded for viewing later or for sharing.
