"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'."
Anglicans across Canada participated enthusiastically in the Amazing Grace project. More than "500 submissions were posted on YouTube and edited into a compilation DVD, hosted by Lynne Samways-Hiltz, wife of Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada. More than $32,000 has been raised and donations continue to come in. Anglican Video senior producer Lisa Barry said excerpts of all of the submissions received by Dec. 1, 2008 would be included in the compilation .... 'There's been some really cool ones,' said Ms. Barry. 'One was from a prison in B.C. ... There was one from Kandahar ... They had musical instruments and arrangements. There's been liturgical dance. It's just amazing'."
