Journal, Anglican Video, Web Site Will Provide Synod Coverage


De Santis, Solange, Anglican Journal


General Synod 2004--the church's triennial governing convention--will be covered extensively by Anglican print, video and Internet media and is expected to generate considerable interest in the mainstream press as well.

"If (the Episcopal Church's) General Convention last year is any indication, there is the potential for a lot of media attention," said Vianney Carriere, director of communications and information resources at the Anglican Church of Canada's national office in Toronto.

About 310 delegates from across the nation are scheduled to gather May 28 to June 4 in St. Catharines, Ont., near Niagara Falls, where one of the most contentious issues to be discussed will be whether the church should offer blessings to gay couples.

Last August, the U.S. church's General Convention attracted a huge amount of attention--and more than 350 accredited media--when it confirmed the election of the denomination's first openly-gay bishop and acknowledged that same-sex blessings take place within the life of the church. In Canada, the diocese of New Westminster voted in 2002 to allow parishes to offer same-sex blessings and the issue is being debated nationally.

Also expected to attract media coverage are the election of a new primate, and an address by United Nations diplomat Stephen Lewis on AIDS.

General Synod plenary sessions and the primatial election at Brock University and the installation service at Hamilton's Christ's Church Cathedral may be viewed live on the Internet, said Web manager Brian Bukowski.
