"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'."
"Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, emerged from his Dec. 6  meeting with the Archbishop of Canterbury-elect, Justin Welby, feeling 'very optimistic about his leadership'. The visit which took place at Auckland Castle, in County Durham, England, was part of Hiltz' annual visit to Lambeth Palace and the Anglican Communion office. Hiltz also met with Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, who retired on Dec. 7 ". [Text of entire article.]
