Notes
"Augsburg Fortress Canada -- the bookseller for the Anglican Church of Canada -- has announced the closure of the Anglican Book Centre (ABC), effective Jan. 18, 2013. Patrons will now be served online and by phone (800) 265-6397. Founded more than 100 years ago, ABC is an internationally known retailer of books, vestments and church supplies. Sales were down by 28 per cent in 2011, which is 'below the break-even level', said a joint statement released by the Anglican Church of Canada and Augsburg Fortress. 'In spite of hard work and innovation, the trend has continued in 2012', said the statement. The decline in revenues was attributed to competition from web-based book retailers and the increase in readership of e-books. 'Religious book and gift stores across Canada have faced significant challenges resulting in the closure of 120 stores in the past 10 years', said Andy Seal, director of ABC/Augsburg Fortress Canada".

Notes
"The Anglican Church of Canada's General Synod has requested bishops and deans to focus, for 22 days, from May 31 to June 21 [2017], 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 [2017], 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'."
