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
"Anglican Church of Canada leaders have expressed their solidarity and offered prayers to the Coptic Church following the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS) in Libya [on 15 Feb. 2015]". "The bishop of the diocese of Ontario, Michael Oulton, meanwhile, sent a letter to Pope Tawadros II, Pope of Alexandria and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark and leader of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria, assuring him of his and his diocese's prayers for the Coptic Church". "Oulton personally met Pope Tawadros II during the latter's visit to Kingston, Ont., where he delivered the Mathers Lecture at Queen's University in September 2014".
