The Anglican Journal has launched a special web page based on the newspaper's extensive coverage of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's (TRC) national events. The dedicated web page includes links to more than 150 news, features, videos and photos from the Journal, providing public access to "rich and compelling archival material about this important part of Canadian and church history - at their fingertips," the Journal reported January 12. In creating the web page, it said, "the Journal offers a valuable resource that will be of use not just now, but in perpetuity." The TRC is a key component of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement signed in 2007 by the federal government, four church denominations, the Assembly of First Nations and other aboriginal organizations. From the late 19th century to the mid-20th century, about 150,000 aboriginal children were put into residential schools across Canada. Many were physically, emotionally and sexually abused. The Anglican church operated 26 of the 80 schools from the mid-19th century into the 1970s.

GIFT CampaignGIFT campaign, 2011- 2016
Contribute to our exciting capital campaign, raising $12-million for parish, diocesan and wider church programs and ministries Through increased involvement and support, GIFT draws us together as one Church. As it builds on the positive results of the stewardship initiatives currently in practice, parishioners will develop a better understanding of our Church's ministries in parishes and in local communities as well as nationally and internationally. Ultimately, this experience will give far more to a parish than merely the dollars raised.
