Week of 4 April 1999

What happens when an Anglican Church of Canada parish changes its name? Well, first you need to consider the original naming document. Then you need to have a bishop agree to the change. After all this, your web site can reflect the new (oops, the original) name. The true story of the Parish of St Andrew, previously the Parish of Lachute.

There is a breathtaking amount of Anglican news this week, even ignoring the lead story of the empty tomb in Jerusalem. Usually I try to be slightly flip when writing this summary of the weekly news, but on Easter Sunday I just cannot do it. Three important Christian essays top your must-read list, by the Bishop of London, the Archbishop of Armagh, and the Archbishop of York. The Anglican Communion observer at the United Nations has resigned. A small but forward-looking English parish church plans to use the web to report on the pastoral visit of their bishop. We have found some conservative points of view on the Brockton story and added them to our coverage of it. All this and much more in the News Centre.
