"Michelle Taylor, Jeffrey Hooper and Nicolas Alexandre are the latest Anglican theological students who have decided that they want to learn and experience what it is like to 'be church' outside Canada.. The three are the latest participants of the Anglican Church of Canada's Theological Student International Internship Program, which places theological students in three-month internships with the church's overseas partners". Mr. Alexandre will be going to the Philippines in May 2009. Mr. Hooper, and his wife Michelle Taylor, left for the Church for Uganda in January. "Ms. Taylor, a veterinarian, assists another Canadian Anglican, Rev. Carolyn Langford, who has served the diocese of Central Buganda by lecturing at the diocesan university and developing a model farm".
"The Anglican Church of Canada's General Synod has requested bishops and deans to focus, for 22 days, from May 31 to June 21 , on renewing the church's commitment to support the work of the Anglican Fund for Healing and Reconciliation through prayers, participation in awareness-raising campaigns and donations. Early this year , Council of General Synod (CoGS) agreed to dedicate the undesignated proceeds of Giving with Grace, General Synod's annual fundraising campaign, to replenish the fund. For the next five years, the fund -- created in 1992 as part of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement -- will focus on language recovery". General Secretary, Archdeacon Michael Thompson, "stressed that while the Anglican Church of Canada has met its legal obligations under the settlement agreement, 'we're far from finished with our spiritual and moral obligation to continue to support the healing work that is underway among those survivors and in those communities'."
