Announcements for Wednesday, July 13, 2016

1.       Bishops’ letter to the clergy and people of the Diocese of Huron (July 13, 2016) following the recalculation of votes on the resolution regarding the Marriage Canon at the General Synod, is now posted on Diocesan Facebook page and  Huron Church News site 
2.       General Synod 2016.  From July 4-12, 2016 our General Synod delegates from Huron served faithfully through a very challenging synod.  The Synod not only considered the resolution on the Marriage Canon but also made a significant decision on investment principles in light of climate change; heard moving reports from the Diocese of Cuba, Anglican Foundation and PWRDF and elected its officers and committee members for the coming triennium.
We are delighted that the Ven. Jane Humphreys was elected to the Resources for Mission Committee and Canon Paul Rathbone to the Financial Management Committee of the national Church! Thank you, Jane and Paul, for serving the wider Church through this work.
For more information on General Synod 2016 see the reports and articles at
