It stressed its central roles of advising Communion provinces on questions of liturgy and common prayer, and encouraging inter-province conversations on liturgical theology and practice. It also committed to reviewing developments in liturgical formation and practice with the Anglican Communion’s ecumenical partners and to aiding Anglican provinces making new proposals in these areas.Continuing the healing and reconciliation theme of the Dublin meeting, the Montreal gathering concluded that the journey toward reconciliation should include “ritual moments and symbolic enactments.“ To that end, the consultation committed to producing appropriate guidelines for these by exploring relevant biblical texts, the theology of reconciliation and baptismal identity, and liturgical frameworks for rites of corporate reconciliation. In this area, the group expects to work in partnership with the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Consultation on Peace and Conflict Prevention.Attendees included Anglican and Episcopal church representatives from Southern Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Melanesia, Polynesia, Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, the Philippines, Southern Africa, South America, Canada, the United States, England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. The Anglican Communion office was represented by its director of unity, faith and order, Canon John Gibaut of the diocese of Ottawa. Anglican Church of Canada attendess included the primate, Archbishop Fred Hiltz; National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald; and the Rev. Eileen Scully, director of faith, worship and ministry. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Smithfield, NC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.
