Communion seeks new observer at UN

The post of Anglican Observer at the United Nations will shortly become vacant with the retirement of Archdeacon Taimalelagi Fagamalama Tuatagaloa-Matalavea, in July.

Archdeacon Tuatagaloa-Matalavea was honoured with the Cross of St. Augustine by the Archbishop of Canterbury during the recent joint standing committee meeting of the Anglican Consultative Council and the primates.

“The good work begun over these past years must be continued and increase in its scope if the post UN Observer truly serves the Communion,” said Canon Kenneth Kearon, Secretary General of the Anglican Communion. “Our Anglican brothers and sisters face extraordinary circumstances in many parts of the world. Having our Anglican observer gives us, as church an opportunity, to be seen and heard in one of the world’s most important forums.”

Applicants are being invited for the post which will initially be for a three-year period. The office is located at the Episcopal Church Centre in New York and will have close links with additional work being done in Geneva, Switzerland.
