What's New This Week

ALL THE NEW URLS we receive each week are here. We list two (sometimes three) weeks' worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages.

If you can't find something that was once here, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site, and it can also search all of the sites to which we link.

The Choir of Grace Cathedral, San Francisco, California: You can listen to webcasts of weekly choral services, which at present include an Evensong on Thursday and a Sunday Choral Eucharist. Can't listen live? Grace Cathedral tells us that their services are archived for a week, but we can't find these archives, and their web site is so complex it makes our head spin. If you manage to find their archives, maybe you could tell us, so we can update this listing.

Episcopal Elections
Anglican Church of the Central America Region
The Rt Revd Martin Barahona, Bishop of El Salvador, was elected the new Archbishop of the Anglican Church of the Central America Region (IARCA) on Saturday, 13 April in Guatemala City at the Second Synod of the Province. He will follow the Rt Revd Cornelius Wilson, Bishop of Costa Rica, who was the first archbishop of the region. IARCA officially came into being in 1998, after the 1997 ECUSA General Convention vote that permitted the formation of this new province, comprising former dioceses of US Province Nine. IARCA's five members are the Churches of El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama and Costa Rica. Bishop Barahona has been bishop of El Salvador since March 1992 and is the first Salvadoran to be bishop of the Anglican Church of El Salvador. His installation as archbishop will take place at the pro-cathedral of San Juan, in San Salvador, on 24 August 2002.
