"North Muskoka Pioneer Parish [in the diocese of Algoma], through St. John the Baptist Church, Ravenscliffe applied for a grant from the Fulford Trust for a Children's Music Project. The grant allowed the church to host a monthly Sunday afternoon family hour with puppets, making the word of God available through music and skits. This became a family programme with kids learning to do the puppeteering and the simple songs. It has been a huge success and new kids are coming to share in the programme. At Christmas they put a float in the Huntsville Santa Claus parade that attracted all sorts of people to their church programme".
"A.E.J. Fulford established a trust in 1973 that has added joy to the life of the Anglican Church across this country. Young people at church music camps have celebrated the joy of the trust; organ students have played to the beauty of the trust, choirs have travelled across this country and into Europe singing gratefully for the trust; and church music has been published because of the trust. Since its founding the trust has administered grants totalling $226,800. Mr. Fulford established this trust for the 'encouragement, promotion, development and enrichment of Church music in the Anglican Church of Canada.' Since its beginning the trust has given grants in support of diocesan summer schools in church music, summer choir camps for young people, provided bursaries and scholarships to organ students pursuing a career in church music, as well as providing grants to assist in the commissioning of new church music in celebration of parochial and diocesan occasions. The trust is also interested in new ideas and programmes to enable small and rural churches to develop musical programmes which will enhance worship and encourage smaller congregations."

The Advent 1996 issue of the International Anglican Family Network "tells of just a few of the projects, linked with churches, which are trying to alleviate the suffering and halt the spread of the disease.

Archbishop of Carey, the Most Rev. George Carey, and his wife Eileen, visited the London Lighthouse and CARA, an church run AIDS charity. Dr. Carey said that "AIDS is one of the most important issues facing the Anglican Church worldwide today."
Sermon by the Bishop of London, the Rt. Rev. Richard Chartres, at the 10th anniversary service, held at the Guards Chapel, Westminster, to celebrate the life of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. "At a time when people are suspicious of rhetoric, the monarchy communicates by symbol and simple speech and the Princess brought her own gifts to this work. She was still only 26 when she shook the hand of a patient at the opening of the Middlesex Hospital's AIDS ward, the first in the UK. It is hard now to credit the degree of fear and prejudice which surrounded AIDS in the eighties. Those familiar with the field have no doubt that the Princess played a significant part in overcoming a harmful and even cruel taboo is a gesture which was not choreographed but sprang from a deep identification with those who were vulnerable and on the margin". "Her work in the very last year of her life for the victims of landmines also caught the popular imagination internationally and certainly accelerated the adoption of the Ottawa Convention, banning the use of weapon which disproportionately kills and maims women and children. She proved the eloquence of embrace and touch which of course have been used by royal healers through the centuries. And as she said 'the biggest disease today is not leprosy or TB but the feeling of being unwanted'." "Let this service mark the point at which we let her rest in peace and dwell on her memory with thanksgiving and compassion while we pray in the words of St. Paul for all those who serve our country as members of the Royal Family and most especially for the sons who were so precious to her".

"Each issue of 'The Churches Speak' begins with an introductory essay which provides an overview of the topic itself and traces its recent historical manifestations. This essay also summarize, compares, and contrasts the opinions found in the individual statements, allowing the user to place each one in the appropriate context. Each essay concludes with bibliographic citations to sources for further reading on the topic. The statements presented in each monograph are arranged into four main sections based on broad religious families or traditions: The Roman Catholic Church (which represents the single largest religious body in the United States); Protestant and Eastern Orthodox Churches; Jewish Groups; and Other Religious Bodies. Within the Roman Catholic Church section, statements are arranged chronologically by issuing date. The remaining sections are subarranged alphabetically by individual churches, religious bodies, or ecumenical organizations; the statements issued by each organization are presented chronologically within that organization. Each of the four religious family sections is preceded by a note which provides background information of the family and analysis of its perspective on the issue in question." -- Preface.
