He said the continuing air bombardment on civilians and lack of humanitarian aid has increased the immigration of people from his diocese to neighboring countries.Bishop Andudu Adam Elnail of the Diocese of Kadugli said this in a report to highlight activities of “pastoral, administrative work and participation in peace talks between the Government of Sudan and Sudan People’s Liberation Movement in North.”More than 200,000 Nuba people had sought refuge in the Republic of South Sudan only to find themselves in another war-torn area. “Many got confused and traumatized and some ran back to the war zone areas in the Nuba Mountains preferring to die in their home land,” said Elnail.The bishop and his team decided to follow their displaced flock into neighboring countries including Uganda, the Republic of South Sudan, Kenya and Ethiopia.“Pastoring and visiting all my people in these countries alone is very hard,” said the bishop. “I was however encouraged by the provincial decision late last year approving an assistant bishop to the diocese of Kadugli to help me in pastoring, visiting and encouraging the flock wherever they are.”The worsening situation in Sudan and South Sudan has caught the attention of the Anglican Communion. The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) is just one of several Anglican agencies tat have been raising funds for the situation there.Simon Chambers from PWRDF reports that the organization recently contributed an additional $35,000 through the ACT Alliance for continuing relief work in Darfur. “The ACT program will help over 586,000 people to have access to food, clean water, sanitation, improved health, education for children, and jobs for adults,” he said.He added: “PWRDF has also contributed US$20,000 to ACT’s program that will provide food and basic goods (cooking tools, bedding, clothes, etc.) to 3000 households who have fled the violence.”This is in addition to the US$20,000 that PWRDF sourced early this year to provide relief to newly arrived refugees at the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya.Despite the challenges that come with living in a foreign country, Sudan Christians are flourishing in diaspora. In Uganda for instance, the church is growing under the leadership of the Rev. Jaleela Ayoub.“They used to have fellowship from home to home every Saturday and Sunday evening, but membership has now grown to over a one hundred, especially in school holidays when children are back from boarding schools,” said Elnail.“It was decided that the fellowship leaders should approach Church of Uganda to assist in finding a space for worship. The church is united, children are very active, creative in worship and many of them can lead and share their testimonies.”Kakuma refugee camp in northern Kenya was another place visited by the bishop as he made his rounds in the neighboring countries. It’s reported that the number of refugees has grown significantly since the war erupted in South Sudan.“The number of Episcopalians from Diocese of Kadugli increased to 1,389, many of them are youth,” said the bishop. “The number of the churches increased to three congregations and the many talents and spiritual growth especially among the youth is what I admired most.”Many were confirmed at a service attended by many people from different denominations and Episcopalians from South Sudan.Elnail was invited by the African Union in Ethiopia to participate in peace talks between the Government of Sudan and Sudan People’s Liberation Movement in North (SPLM/N) and led an expert team consisting of four advisers.He said, “As the experts we advised the two parties to consider the suffering nation and that this was the right time for reaching agreement to bring peace to the region and stop the bloodshed.”“We suggested ways that can help bring in humanitarian aid to the affected people even though the two parties failed to agree and the meeting got adjourned by the chairman. We need prayers for the two parties and all mediators to bring peace to Sudan,” said Elnail.“It’s saddening to meet hundreds of brilliant youth in the countries I have visited who, despite having finished secondary schools, cannot be admitted into universities due to financial constraints and other effects of war.”The bishop encouraged the International community to “increase it’s efforts in understanding the complex problems and root causes of wars which have taken more than five decades in Sudan.” Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Shreveport, LA Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Anglican Communion, Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Knoxville, TN Director of Music Morristown, NJ Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY last_img read more

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Curate Diocese of Nebraska Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Hopkinsville, KY Posted Nov 20, 2020 Rector Tampa, FL In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Bath, NC Rector Albany, NY Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Rector Belleville, IL [Diocese of Chicago] Karina Rodriguez was worried when her parish, St. Michael and All Angels in Berwyn, Illinois, was named a distressed parish back in January.“Our church is like a family,” said Rodriguez, a former senior warden and current member of the vestry. “When words like ‘distressed parish’ came up, naturally we became defensive. We wanted to protect what we’d built.”But by October, St. Michael’s had shed the distressed parish designation, and strengthened its understanding of church governance and administration in the process. The parish also acquired a new priest-in-charge, the Rev. Jaime Briceño, and a deeper understanding of its mission in a diverse community that includes both Anglos and Latinos.St. Michael’s story is uniquely its own, but its experience in the distressed parish process illustrates some ways in which the diocese can be helpful to parishes in trouble. Those include technical expertise, emotional support and, sometimes, financial assistance.“I think what helped the most was having a relationship with the diocese,” Rodriguez said. “Once we understood what kind of help we could get, things began to fall into place.”At the root of St. Michael’s problems was a cluster of misunderstandings, about its finances, about the role of the vestry and, most importantly, about the relationship between the parish and The Angels Daycare facility, which operates on the church’s property.These misunderstandings came to the fore when the parish’s last rector, the Rev. Carlos Plazas, departed two years ago, taking a significant amount of the parish’s institutional memory with him. After his departure, the parish believed it could no longer afford even a part-time priest, and that its only alternative was to plug on faithfully without one.“They still had a community, even though they didn’t have a priest,” said Mike Mattson, a diocesan trustee who was on the distressed parish team that worked with St. Michael’s. “The vestry really wanted to make this work.”The distressed parish team quickly learned that while the parish understood The Angels Daycare, which had been providing affordable day in the community for more than 18 years as a tenant, it was, in fact, a ministry of the parish, originally established “to provide a way for people in the community to come and learn more about St. Michael’s,” Mattson said.“Once we got in and we looked at the finances, it turns out they are a self-sustaining parish,” he added. “There was enough money being generated by the nursery school to help sustain the parish.”The parish, which had taken a largely hands-off approach to the daycare, took a while to absorb this new information.“Because the period of transition has been long and rocky, it took a while for people to understand that, yes, the daycare is your ministry and you have a great blessing and a great presence in the community, but you are responsible for it,” said Briceño, who became priest-in-charge in July.Diocesan help didn’t end with the work of the distressed parish committee, however. Briceño’s part-time salary and benefits are being paid for the next three years by a grant from Chicago Leadership Fund, a fund within the diocesan endowment. The grant was authorized by the endowment’s trustees.“He is what they really needed,” Mattson said. “Jaime is a very good leader. He was able to go in and get to know various groups within the church, and get them to work together and talk, and that has been a big thing.”Briceño says he is learning on the job, especially in overseeing the daycare with the help of head mistress Judith Delgado.“I think the biggest challenge right now is COVID,” he says. “It makes it really difficult to create a relationship. We’ve done a lot of things fast, and a lot of those have been very good. But I now have to figure out what to do now. With COVID, a lot of the normal things you think are ways to make church or create community or relate to people are not available. It makes it very hard when you do not get to see your parishioners every Sunday or hang out with them at coffee hour.”But Rodriguez, a vestry member, is enthused about the congregation’s future under Briceño’s leadership.“Jaime understands how things run,” Rodriguez said. “He is building our website, inviting people to our Facebook page.” She said the parish is beginning to look ahead and consider what other services it can offer to the surrounding community, “whether that’s mental health services or college prep services to students or growing the childcare, getting more people to attend church. Just growing in general.” Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Collierville, TN Featured Jobs & Calls Submit an Event Listing Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Martinsville, VA An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Youth Minister Lorton, VA Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MSlast_img read more

Class of 2020 invited to graduate in May 2021

first_imgTCU News Now 2/24/2021 Alexis Kinghttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexis-king/ + posts printAfter several changes to their commencement plans, the class of 2020 gave mixed reactions to the announcement to participate in an in-person ceremony in May. Chancellor Victor Boschini announced Monday in an email to graduates and their families that in addition to the virtual ceremony scheduled for Aug. 8, TCU is planning commencement for all graduates in May 2021.In the email, Boschini said those who can’t make it to the spring commencement can participate in any future ceremony, as he wants to ensure “every 2020 graduate has the opportunity to walk across the stage when it is safe to do so.”This announcement comes after the July 20 announcement of the virtual graduation, which begins at 4 p.m. and will be streamed on Facebook.During the virtual ceremony, every graduate’s name will scroll across the screen in the Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena. (Photo by Heesoo Yang.)Many graduates have voiced their opinions on how they felt since the in-person commencement was canceled due to COVID-19.“I know it makes the most sense and is probably easiest to allow us to graduate with other classes in the future,” said Anne Wright, a TCU alumna. “However, it is still disappointing that our class won’t have our own celebration.”Another TCU alumna, Maddie Foss, said though she wishes the administration could have been more proactive, she knows TCU is doing its best. If COVID-19 cases continue to increase, some students are uncertain if announcing the plans for the 2021 commencement was the best decision.“I honestly kinda wish they hadn’t said we can walk in 2021 because unfortunately, who even knows if there will be a ceremony then, and to have a third one canceled would just be sad,” said Madelyn Carlson, a TCU alumna.Chancellor Boschini commended the Class of 2020 and said they will be remembered for their “adaptability, innovation and resilience.”“I truly believe that all the challenges we face in life help us to be better leaders for tomorrow,” he said.

Censorship is also banned by the Chilean constitution, of which article 19 (12) guarantees “the freedom to express opinions and inform without prior censorship.”The banned programme, “Enigma,” which raised doubts about the guilt of one of the presumed perpetrators of the murder of lawyer Patricio Torres Reyes, was the subject of a lawsuit by the lawyer’s widow, alleging that the programme was an offence to the family’s dignity and honour.The programme’s producer Patricio Polanco complained that neither the widow, nor her lawyers, nor the judges ever viewed the programme.last_img read more

Specifically, AB 586 would allow newly-credentialed teachers either an individual tax credit or deduction for professional development expenses to fulfill the requirements for a California Clear Multiple, Single Subjects Credential or Special Education (Education Specialist Instruction) Credential.California’s shortage of professionally qualified teachers directly impacts the quality of our children’s education,” said Assemblymember Chris Holden. “Tax relief can encourage new teachers to remain in the profession.”Expenses pose a particular hardship for many new teachers who serve at the lowest end of salary scales, while still paying off their college loans. In a 2016 survey by the Learning Policy Institute of more than 200 California school districts, 75% were experiencing teacher shortages, and the vast majority was getting worse.Holden’s legislation that would establish the Route 66 Centennial Commission to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the California Historic State Route 66 passed the Assembly Transportation Committee with a 13-0 vote.“This bill helps preserve the rich cultural and political history of Route 66 and will bring back lively tourism to cities, museums and vintage California monuments along the route,” said Holden.Holden’s legislation to establish a storm water compliance fund and increases the California Tire Fee to raise revenue for water treatment, Assembly Bill 1180, passed the Assembly Natural Resources Committee with 7-3 vote.

New contract to cure hospital ills

first_imgTwitter by Bernie [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A NEW Emergency Department to cure the ills of the University Hospital in Dooradoyle came a step closer this week, with the awarding of a contract for the fit-out and completion of the facility.However it now seems likely that the original delivery date of 2016 will not be met.The existing emergency department has made headlines for all the wrong reasons in recent times, with regular overcrowding and patients facing marathon wait times on trolleys for admission.A public works contract has been awarded to John Sisk & Son Holdings for the fit-out and completion of the new emergency department and also for the delivery of a new 24-bed dialysis unit. The company has already begun setting up on site.The estimated combined cost of both projects comes to around €25 million and it’s expected they will take approximately 18 months to complete.The new emergency department will be located on the ground floor of both the critical care block and the adjacent extension and will be three times the size of the current emergency department.A new state-of-the-art new dialysis unit will be provided on the first floor of the extension block on the same floor level as the hospitals new intensive care unit. The unit is being supported by the Mid-Western Hospitals Development Trust with support from the JP McManus Pro-Am Committee.It is expected to be up and running within 12 months, with the emergency department taking longer due to the number of phases involved and the logistics of the works, including having to power down to install electrics while keeping vital supplies going to the critical care block and the existing operating theatre and paediatric blocks at the hospital.UL Hospitals Group chief executive Professor Colette Cowan said that the new emergency department was designed with the comfort of patients very much in mind.“It will mean a much improved patient experience in terms of access and their journey through the hospital. It will also mean more dignity and privacy for our patients, who will be treated in pod-like facilities where they will get specialist care”.While acknowledging that the original target opening date of the end of 2016 for the emergency department may not be met, Prof Cowan said it was important to plan such a complex project properly.“We had hoped to open by the end of 2016 but these things can sometimes take a bit longer than planned”.
