Society of Archbishop Justus, Ltd
Hallo again to all. It has been
a week of finishing up unfinished news business and tidying various files.
The Churches Advertising Network, an ecumenical initiative based in the UK, have
launched a controversial 1999 Easter campaign. We cover the story in our News
Centre. If adverts
are designed to 'break through the clutter', surely this one has succeeded very well
The business of Westminster Abbey and the dispute between its dean and organist was
settled in law not long ago. We have reported on it several times. We raise the issue
this one last time because we have obtained a copy of the complete text of the decision
of Lord Jauncey. If
you're not familiar with the broad outlines of the situation, start here with our
with its many links to key sources of information.
Wippell, 'service to church and clergy since 1789',
have a web site for their USA branch. Whilst there is some good information there,
the online ordering is most confusing, some of the scanned magazine graphics enormous,
and there is by no means an entire catalogue on the site. (For those of you with
fairly high-speed Internet connections, have a look at this promotion page with its oddly-scanned graphic showing the folds
from when it was put in someone's pocket. What is that clergyman pointing
to? How should this photo be captioned? Oh, sorry, we're sounding like Ship

For those of you who use Celebrating Common Prayer, the 1999 CCP Ordo is online, courtesy of our own Simon Sarmiento.
It follows the new Church of England calendar and is a most useful resource.
June Maffin, a priest in Canada (and mother of Anglicans Online founder Tod
Maffin), has begun
a web site for 'Total Ministry' resources, after discovering virtually no information
on the Internet. (Not sure about the term 'Total Ministry'? You may recognise it
as Baptismal Ministry, Collaborative Ministry, Mutual Ministry, Local Ministry, Total
All new sites and links are, as usual, featured in New This Week, as regular visitors to Anglicans Online will know.
A correction: Last week we located St John the Baptist Cathedral in the mythical
Diocese of Newfoundland, when it is actually in the Diocese of Eastern Newfoundland and
Labrador, which has
just come on line. (Here's a visual of the dioceses in Canada, and you'll see just how Newfoundland is
divided.) As is said in the trade, Anglicans Online regret the error. Next week we
will quiz you on the location of the equally-mythical Diocese of Vancouver.
See you next week.
