"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'."
"After producing a joint church calendar with the United Church of Canada for more than 40 years, the Anglican Church of Canada has decided to go it alone. Work is underway to produce the 2010 Canadian Church Calendar which will feature Anglican-only photographs of church settings across Canada. .... The calendar is more than a century old, with the first edition being published in 1905 by the Missionary Society of the Church of England. The early versions depicted the work of missionaries and also provided information on the church year. In 1964, the missionary society selected 'Canadian Churchman', forerunner of the 'Anglican Journal', to take over the calendar. It was first promoted and sold across Canada through the Woman's Auxiliary and later through Anglican Church Women. The decision to produce an Anglican-specific calendar was endorsed by the 'Anglican Journal' board. Larry Gee, advertising business and financial manager of the 'Anglican Journal', says that 'the newspaper's share of proceeds from the sale of the Canadian Church Calendar represents approximately 10 per cent of its total revenue'."
