Notes
"Michael Thompson, general secretary of the Anglican Church of Canada, announced that he will also serve as acting director of General Synod's Communications and Information Resources department. Vianney (Sam) Carriere, the director of communications for General Synod, will be on a leave of absence for health reasons. Thompson invited staff to continue in prayer and concern for Carriere, and his wife Linda. In a brief written announcement to staff at the national office in Toronto, Thompson added that he 'will be looking to [the department's] Senior Manager Bev Murphy for her continuing attention to its day-to-day life and work'. The department of Communications and Information Resources includes the 'Anglican Journal', Anglican Video, online communications, graphic design, a church-wide database and ABC Publishing. The department is also responsible for corporate communications, media relations and the development of resources". [Text of entire article.]

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'."
