The Anglican Church in Papua New Guinea and its UK support agency, the Papua New Guinea Church Partnership, celebrated 25 years of partnership in 2003. (Papua New Guinea became an independent province of the Anglican Communion on 27 February 1977.) The church today struggles with conditions in Papua New Guinea which faces a deteriorating economic and social situation. Corruption is rampant and 20 % of young people are infected with STDs including HIV/AIDS.

Notes
The author, a librarian and Volunteer in Mission from the diocese of Montreal, is working at Newton Theological College, in Papua New Guinea. She describes a powerful speaker at the College. "Fr. Nicholas (Anglican priest) from Zimbabwe, who was doing a training workshop on AIDS/HIV. This man is training church people and teachers by telling them about the Zimbabwean experience: how the church shut its eyes and ears to the virus, refused to talk about the sexual connection, refused to endorse the use of condoms and now is reaping the awful harvest of those decisions". She also describes how garbage disposal is handled at the College and the concern that the College has polluted a local water source. She will soon start teaching an advanced English course for the wives of students.

Notes
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".
