"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'."
"The Council of General Synod (CoGS) has approved the theme, 'Feeling the Winds of God -- charting a new course' as the theme for the next General Synod, scheduled June 4 to 10, 2010 in Halifax. At its fall meeting, CoGS also approved a resolution that a representative from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) be included as participant in planning the meetings for General Synod 2010 .... In its report, the General Synod 2010 planning committee said it was looking at the possibility of online registration and possibly an electronic convening circular to save on costs".
