"The Rev. Capt. David Parsons will become Anglican bishop of the diocese of the Arctic in early 2013. Elected co-adjutor bishop during the Arctic synod in Iqaluit, Nunavut Bishop Parsons will succeed Bishop Andrew Atagotaaluk, who is retiring. Parsons was consecrated on June 3 [2012] at the opening of St. Jude's Cathedral, newly rebuilt after being destroyed by fire in 2005. Parsons currently serves as regional dean of the Mackenzie Delta and is the incumbent at the Church of the Ascension in Inuvik. The Rev. Darren McCartney was elected suffragan bishop. McCartney spent several years in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, as rector of St. Luke's and speaks fluent Inuktitut. He comes from Knocknamuckley, Ireland". [Text of entire article.]

"The synod of the diocese of the Arctic, meeting in Iqaluit, Nunavut from May 27 to June 3 [2008], passed a motion criticizing decisions by four dioceses of the Anglican Church of Canada that support blessing same-sex unions". "It also passed a motion expressing 'strong support .. for those in the Southern Cone dioceses, recognizing them as members of the Anglican Communion'." 'In an interview Bishop Atagotaaluk said the decision by the synods of the dioceses of Ottawa, Montreal, Niagara and Huron to ask their bishops to give clergy permission to bless homosexual marriages 'kind of let us down from trusting that we had a process that everybody can work with'. He added that since the 2007 General Synod defeated the motion affirming the authority of dioceses to offer same-sex blessings, 'there was no message saying that we could all go our own way'." "'We have serious housing issues -- we used to provide housing for clergy and they're all aging and needing to be replaced or renovated and there are no funds available for that kind of work', [Bishop Atagotaaluk] said". "During the synod a draft of the new English/Inuktitut hymnbook, 'Voices of Worship', was distributed to delegates and used for the duration of the meeting".

"In September [2016], after nine years in limbo, the Arthur Turner Training School (ATTS) once again opened its doors to Anglicans for ministry in the diocese of the Arctic -- this time, out of its new home at St. Jude's Cathedral in Iqaluit. '[The school] is meant to be a resource for the entire diocese', said the Rev. Joseph Royal, the school's director. The vision is for lay people and clergy to 'come and attend classes, learn and take part', he said". "Finding money was a serious challenge, he said. However, a return of about $50,000 in 2014 from the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement gave the project the stimulus it needed. The ATTS curriculum will mix theology, study of the Bible and the Anglican tradition, but the program will be 'tailored to the needs' of the diocese's predominantly Indigenous members, said Royal, who will also be the main instructor. Courses, for example, will be taught bilingually in English and Inuktitut".

"In a stunning reversal, a July 12 recount of the vote to allow same-sex marriage in the Anglican Church of Canada showed that while the motion was reported the previous day to have failed by one vote in the Order of Clergy, it had, in fact, passed there by one vote" (p. 1). "A two-thirds majority was needed in each of the Orders of Laity, Clergy and Bishops for the motion to pass, and it had been widely assumed that there was not enough support among the bishops. ... In fact, the motion appeared to have been scuttled by the Order of Clergy, with the vote originally recording 51 of 77 clergy in favour of changing the marriage canon. As it turned out, this number did not include the vote of Archdeacon Michael Thompson, general secretary of the Anglican Church of Canada. With Thompson's vote counted, it became 52 of 78 in favour, nudging the vote above the required threshold of a two-thirds majority. Incorrect information sent to Data On The Spot, the electronic voting services provider contracted to manage the voting by clickers, led to the mistake, according to Thompson"(p. 1). "After the change was announced, several members from the diocese of Caledonia, including Bishop William Anderson, walked out of the plenary hall, followed shortly by a number of members from the Arctic, including Bishops David Parsons and Darren McCartney" (p. 12). "Bishop Rob Hardwick, of the diocese of Qu'Appelle, chastised the house for not extending sympathy and care to those who had opposed the motion to change the marriage canon" (p. 12).

"The print (illustrated in article) is a reproduction of a painting I did while in Iqaluit, Nunavut (circa 1982). I was an art teacher there from 1974 to 1984 before I moved to Whitehorse, Yukon". The painting depicts a line of Inuit waiting to enter the igloo-shaped St. Jude's Cathedral show in the background of a snowy day. "In 2005, when the cathedral was extremely damaged by arson, I and others felt that the image would be a good fundraising tool for the church. The original painting was sent to me and I reproduced it in my studio workshop here in Whitehorse. One hundred were produced in a limited edition along with several artist proofs. The edition was donated to the church, and I have never sold any myself". The original artwork was entitled 'Waiting for the Kabluna [White man]" but the fundraising reproduction was renamed "Waiting for Jesus".

"The Ungava Peninsula in Nunavik, northern Quebec, is flanked by Hudson Bay on one side and Ungava Bay on the other. Here, above the treeline, wide open skies frame sweeping views of snow through the cold, crisp air. 'It's a beautiful place, amazingly beautiful', says Esther Wesley, co-ordinator of the Anglican Healing Fund. 'But life is harsh'. Wesley, along with Melanie Delva, reconciliation animator for the Anglican Church of Canada, travelled to the area in December [2017], during a two-week visit with Bishop David Parsons, of the diocese of the Arctic. Travelling with the bishop gave them the chance to experience church services in eight communities" (p. 1). In a phone interview, Bishop David Parsons said: "'The people have a vibrancy. That spiritual part of their life is awake' he said. As churches are closing across the rest of the country, he said, in these communities, 'congregations are doing very well .. we're needing to build larger churches'" (p. 6). "But the parishes in the Ungava deanery face their fair share of challenges as well. Despite large congregations, there is a lack of ordained clergy. 'We rarely see Anglican clergy from Canada', says Parsons. He says some people 'can't handle' the remoteness and isolation of the Arctic" (p. 6). Article describes meeting with the Rev. Bobby Nakoolak in Quataq, "a retired elder in his mid-80s who continues to do the work of a priest" (p. 6) and "Jeannie Nungak, a lay reader at Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Kangirsuk ... In the community of between 500 and 600 people, 110 attend Holy Trinity Church, she says. But there is no priest" (p. 6).

" [Esther] Wesley, along with Anglican Church of Canada reconciliation animator Melanie Delva, spent two weeks in December [2017] travelling with Bishop David Parsons, of the diocese of the Arctic, to communities on the Ungava Peninsula, in Nunavik, northern Quebec. In Kangirsuk, an Inuit village in northern Nunavik, community member Zebedee Nungak presented the two women with a jug of water. They soon found out that for Zebedee to collect this gift meant travelling upwards of 17 kilometres. Water in Kangirsuk typically comes from a nearby lake, about five kilometres away, but rising temperatures have caused ice to freeze less deeply and become contaminated by silt. The community has running water, says Zebedee's wife, Jeannie Nungak, but the taste is not as good. 'There are more minerals than there used to be ... the taste is difference for tea or coffee'. This is one of the many daily impacts of climate change on Canada's North. 'It's not a theory up in this part of the world', says Parsons. 'We're the canary in the mine'" (p. 6). "When Delva and Wesley visited in mid-December [2017], Ungava Bay hadn't yet frozen. For communities that fish on this ice, and travel across it to hunting grounds, it's more than an inconvenience. 'People are dying trying to get to the hunting ground', says Delva" (p. 10).
