Michael Thompson, general secretary of the Anglican Church of Canada, announced today that effective immediately 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.
