Sewing machines for Africa mean income for women of the Church and their families.

Coming up in the next issue of THE TRINITARIAN

  • The Canadian-based Africa Appeal has provided funds to send Wivine and Faraja, whose plight was reported in the July-August issue of THE TRINITARIAN, to attend sewing school and provide them with sewing machines so they can earn a living as seamstresses. Thanks also to to donors from the Diocese of the South, the village of Mosho in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo is on its way to getting a medical clinic.  The village had seen 100 children die within three months, including five from the ACC parish of St. François d’Assise, said the Rt. Rev. Steven Ayule-Milenge, Bishop of the Missionary Diocese of Congo. The clinic will considerably reduce the mortality rate, he added.
  • Archbishop Haverland spent ten days in July visiting parishes in Colombia as part of his bi-annual visitation to the Diocese of Nueva Granada.  High points of the visit were the enthronement of the Rt. Rev. Germán Orrego Hurtado as Bishop Ordinary of Nueva Granada and an ecumenical call on the Most Rev. Gonzálo Restrepo, Roman Catholic Archbishop of Manizales, where cordial relations between the Roman and Anglican Catholic Churches in Colombia were affirmed. In addition, Archbishop Haverland visited old-age homes and outreach programs for needy children operated by the diocese.
  • “Have Altar, Will Travel”: Nowadays few remember the Rev. A. Fraser MacCammond, affectionately known as “Father Mac.” And that’s a pity.  For in his day Father Mac was a tireless evangelizer who played a pivotal role in establishing the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic States and founded or nurtured nearly every ACC parish in western Virginia.  TRINITARIAN Editor John Omwake, who was one of Father Mac’s parishioners, tells the story of a remarkable priest.
