PWRDF general meeting
The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund is holding its first annual general meeting from Nov. 1 to 4 at The Briars in Jacksons Point, Ont.
PWRDF, the official relief and development agency of the Anglican Church of Canada, was separately incorporated in May 2000 and is required to hold an annual general meeting within 18 months. It was first created in 1959 by General Synod as the Primate’s World Relief Fund.
The three-day meeting will include training sessions on global issues and international programs for diocesan volunteers as well as parish-based activities around the work of PWRDF, said Andrew Ignatieff, director. Every diocese will be sending volunteers to the meeting, and 60 people are expected to attend, he added. Three new directors will be elected to the 18-member board of directors.
“We are emphasizing participation and the development of a community of PWRDF volunteers,” Mr. Ignatieff said.
A special presentation will also be made to the Three Cantors – three Anglican priests who sing and record popular and religious music – who donate a substantial amount from the sale of their recordings to PWRDF, Mr. Ignatieff noted.
‘Body of Christ’ theme
The Anglican Centre for Theological Dialogue presents its second annual round table discussion entitled “Christ’s Return: the Body of Christ,” at Christ Church Deer Park in Toronto, Oct. 19-20, 2001.
The event will start with a reception and screening of the centre’s video, “Dry Bones: Christianity in Transition (Part 1).” This year’s focus, “The Body of Christ,” will be the basis for speakers’ presentations and open discussion on Saturday.
