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'."

Notes
"The diocese of Ottawa's Christ Church Cathedral and its local chapter of the Anglican Church Women (ACW) are hosting a fundraising concert on Oct. 26 [2008] to help rebuild the diocese of the Arctic's St. Jude's Cathedral in Iqaluit, Nunavut. Cathedral Dean Shane Parker said that the evening 'will be specifically geared to the proposed construction of the new Igloo Cathedral in 2009'. This is the second time that Christ Church is hosting a fundraiser for St. Jude's. About $2.2 million has been raised for the proposed construction, but an additional $4.5 million is still needed. National television journalist Don Newman, and his wife, Shannon Day Newman, will be emcees at the concert".
