'Welcome! You've stumbled upon the Anglican communion's unofficial reststop in cyberspace'.

That phrase had greeted thousands of visitors to Anglicans Online through the years. We're delighted to repeat it now and offer a hearty welcome back to all. Although Anglicans round the world regret the sad but understandable departure of founder (and patron saint)
Tod Maffin, we hope that many of you will be pleased that his work here at Anglicans Online will continue under the auspices of the Society of Archbishop Justus. It is an privilege and honour for us to be responsible for the largest and most comprehensive online resource for the worldwide Anglican and Episcopal communion, and we'll do our best to live up to the high standards our predecessors have set. (And we hope that Tod will contribute in some capacity, once he's had a bit of a breather...)

As you can imagine, we've been working hard to get the site back up as soon as possible. We've checked all the links and we've added as many new links as possible in this short time off the air. Although we have ideas for some additions (and we welcome yours), at present our plans are to keep the site looking and feeling quite the way it has been, updating it weekly. We want Anglicans Online to continue to be the superb resource for worldwide Anglican information that it has been since December 1994.

A few new links you might enjoy having a look at: Dr Michael Fraser's superb collection of
Internet Resources for the Study and Teaching of Theology (and he's been tracking cyber resources for years, so you'll find this site astonishingly comprehensive). Anastasis, out of Cirencester, England, is a new journal for the study of pastoral theology, which, as the editor says, 'comes out of an Anglican background, but doesn't want to remain there, and is for those who want to reflect upon the pilgrimage of faith'. And a new page of sermon and lectionary resources is getting rave reviews. Many of you will be familiar with the fact that the Roman Catholic Church rejected the validity of Anglican Holy Orders in 1896. The formal response, in Latin, of the bishops of the Anglican Communion has been difficult to find in a complete translation until now. You can read the Answer to the Apostolic Letter of Pope Leo XIII on English Ordinations at the Old Catholic web site.

As we continue to sort all the numerous aspects of running Anglicans Online, we don't want to stop publicising new links and web pages. If you have an Anglican-related link you think we should know about,
here's how to let us know. We'll post the link in the appropriate section as soon as possible.

See you next week.
