Primate reflects on bishops' meeting

Archbishop Andrew Hutchison, Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, reflects on a “remarkable” meeting of the Canadian House of Bishops, in a new webcast posted to the General Synod website today.

The April meeting of Canadian bishops in Niagara Falls, Ont., included a visit by Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, who conducted a day-long retreat. It was also the first meeting of the House of Bishops attended by Bishop Mark MacDonald, appointed National Indigenous Bishop earlier this year.

This was the last such meeting for Archbishop Hutchison, who has announced that he will retire after the June General Synod. He has been a member of the House for 17 years, the last three as chair.

The webcast is the newest segment in the series +Andrew: Conversations with the Primate in which Archbishop Hutchison uses the Internet to engage in dialogue with members of the Canadian church. Viewers are urged to send questions or comment to the Primate by writing to him at [email protected].
