Visit the WRU website for further details. Lee Byrne meets Pudsey to announce Children in Need at Millennium StadiumWales and British Lions full back Lee Byrne met with Pudsey Bear at the Millennium Stadium to announce that BBC Children in Need will be bringing a feast of entertainment to the iconic venue for Wales’ Autumn Series fixture against Fiji on Friday 19th November (kick-off 7.30pm).The annual Children in Need show will beam images of a packed-out Millennium Stadium live to BBC’s nationwide television audience during the half-time break when Wales meet their Rugby World Cup nemesis side Fiji, in the special ‘Children in Need Game’.Welsh rugby’s Friday night fixture, which traditionally attracts families and groups of children due to the discounted rate available for under 16s, will be enhanced by the star-studded entertainment schedule planned.The ten minute show from the hallowed pitch will be broadcast on BBC One in full during the main BBC Children in Need Appeal, which raises huge amounts of money for disadvantaged children.Byrne, who made his international debut in the Autumn internationals of 2005 when he came on as a replacement full back against New Zealand, is looking forward to a gruelling November series.“You always remember your first game in a Wales shirt and despite losing the game on the day it was pretty special to make my debut against the All Blacks in front of a capacity Millennium Stadium crowd,” he said.“The Series this year will be as tough as it gets with Australia and South Africa joining New Zealand and Fiji on the fixture list.“We will need all the support we can get from the Wales fans on that Friday night against Fiji, we all know what happened when they knocked us out of the world cup three years ago and we only beat them by a point the time before that.center_img “That would have been my first start for Wales against Fiji in 2005 and we’ve had some great wins since then, beating Australia in 2008 and obviously winning the Grand Slam that year as well.“It should be pretty special atmosphere on that third Friday in November, knowing we must face Fiji in our Rugby World Cup pool the following year and the ‘Children in Need’ show should really enhance the atmosphere.“They are always exciting games against the Fijians and I hope we can show this great charity the respect it deserves by replicating the entertainment on display at half time out on the pitch and helping in any way we can with the Appeal.”Head of BBC Children in Need in Wales, Marc Phillips, said: “Uniting BBC Children in Need with the Wales v Fiji match will help deliver a spectacular Appeal, with the biggest live audience a Children in Need event has ever had.“Pudsey may not be ready to take his place in the Welsh team, but he’ll certainly make his presence felt in the Millennium Stadium – and all for the benefit of disadvantaged children and young people here in Wales. Many thanks to the Welsh Rugby Union and the Wales Team for their ready co-operation.”Welsh rugby has a history of supporting BBC Children in Need to create magical moments for children in Wales and the UK, but this year promises to raise the profile even more with a very special night at the home of Welsh sport and more exciting announcements to come.There’s still a chance to be part of the rugby action in Cardiff with tickets available from £20 for adults and £10 for children at www.wru.co.uk/tickets and via telephone 08442  777 888 and to personal callers at Cardiff Arms Store, 8 Westgate Street, Cardiff.Also the WRU has announced an exclusive offer for school and junior group bookings at Wales v Fiji, with one free adult ticket per group of eight children booked (at £10 each).

Championship Blog – Round 19 wrap

first_img What it is all about: Below are the latest comings and goings in the ever competitive Championship The latest comings and goings in England’s ever-competitive second tier… By Richard GraingerFormer British & Irish Lion Ryan Jones has become the latest big name to sign for Bristol, joining Anthony Perenise and Dwayne Peel amongst others. But multi-millionaire owner Steve Lansdown is content to play down the expectation of a return to the Aviva Premiership for his club.Lacklustre Leeds almost punish Bristol complacencyLeeds Carnegie 27, Bristol 33Still not impressed: Andy RobinsonBristol’s Director of Rugby Andy Robinson was also quick to play down his side’s recurring inability to kill off opponents after once again coming perilously close to snatching defeat from the jaws of their ninth consecutive GKIPA Championship win.“We are still working on maintaining our levels of performance for the full eighty minutes,” said Robinson, whose side conceded two quick-fire tries in injury time, “but we’re looking at that and it’s an area of focus for us.”Had Leeds not played with anything other than total ineptitude for all but 15 minutes at Headingley on Sunday, Bristol would have been made to move out of second gear for their five-pointer.One has to ask if Bristol, when faced with a winner-takes-all scenario, as they surely will be at the business end of the season, will be any more clinical? What made it worse was that, with Leeds reduced to thirteen men and Bristol leading 33-13 in the third quarter, the visitors were unable to move the scoreboard.Carnegie came to life briefly in the first half shortly after Nicky Robinson had scythed through the hosts’ midfield and fed Nick Koster for Bristol’s third try.Glyn Hughes added his second penalty for Leeds then danced in under the posts to reduce the interval deficit to 13-21.However, tries from Ruki Tipuna and Gaston Cortes looked to have made the game safe for Bristol before Leeds bounced back in injury time to secure an unlikely losing bonus point.Exiles go through the gears for bonus pointLondon Welsh 29, Bedford Blues 11Unlike Bristol, the Exiles upped the tempo in the second half to secure a bonus point win over Bedford at the Kassam Stadium on Sunday. Two tries from Seb Jewell, a penalty try and one a-piece from Tom May and Nick Scott were enough to see off a spirited Bedford challenge.Veteran scorer: Tom May of London WelshWelsh had their pack’s superiority to thank for a penalty try that allowed them to take an unlikely 12-8 interval lead into the dressing room, but thereafter it was largely one-way traffic. Welsh, who failed to secure the bonus point against the Cornish Pirates last Sunday, returning from the Duchy with a 5-20 win, sit in second place just three points behind Bristol and look forward to the short trip to the Athletic ground for round two of the battle of the Exiles on Sunday.Ealing anguish despite Chesters’s crowd pleaserEaling Trailfinders 25, Jersey 23Despite the joy of doing the double over fellow relegation candidates Jersey, Ealing are still favourites to drop through the trap door back into National league One. A massive defensive effort and the 11th try of the season for the ubiquitous Phil Chesters was enough to reverse Jersey’s 15-20 interval lead at Vallis Way on Friday night.But it was Ealing’s inability to overhaul Bedford in West London last Saturday that leaves them with the glass half empty in the Last Chance Saloon. Chesters scored a brace, but the brace that took the game away from Ealing was the one scored by Mark Atkinson in the last five minutes to secure a 23-39 victory for the Blues.To make matters worse for Ealing was news that Jersey had defeated Plymouth 23-30 at Brickfields. This result comes as no surprise as Albion’s abysmal home record has thus far yielded a solitary Championship win. Nine points now separate Ealing and Jersey.Titans score four in fourteen minutes to choke AlbionRotherham 45, Plymouth 10Albion’s week didn’t get any better, going down 45-10 to fourth-placed Rotherham at Clifton Lane on Sunday. Plymouth, who only trailed 12-3 at the break, were hit by four tries in fourteen minutes as the Titans raced to a seven-try victory.Mid-table Pirates have pride to play forCornish Pirates 17, Nottingham 11Blast from the past: Mark Bright in 2011Pirates conceded a pushover try with two men in the bin at the Mennaye Field on Sunday to give Nottingham a losing bonus point after Kyle Moyle had scored a brace for the hosts. The Cornishmen, in sixth place, are now out of the play-off running.Exiles end Midlanders’ home runcenter_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Moseley 20, London Scottish 23Mose, who had won six on the bounce at home, could consider themselves unlucky to lose this one, conceding an arbitrary scrum penalty from the final play of the game, which James Love kicked to take the points. Exiles’ skipper Mark Bright, who scored two tries concurred, saying, “To be honest I don’t think we did enough to deserve that game.”last_img read more

Clermont’s Jamie Cudmore on wine and winning

first_imgMaking a toast: Cudmore shows off his new range of Sin Bin wines from the Auvergne regionRW: Whose idea was it to call your label ‘Sin Bin’? JC: We wanted to poke fun at my disciplinary record and so that’s why we came up with the tongue-in-cheek name. But it’s good for me to create something for my life after the rugby. I’m nearing the end of my career and soon the cheques are going to stop arriving at the end of each month.RW: How does the 36-year-old Cudmore train differently to the 26-year-old one? JC: It’s about training smarter, not harder. Ten years ago I could do contact the whole week and still be fresh on a Saturday. Now I still work really hard on the technical details but I know which contacts to take a step back from during the week.RW: The Top 14 still has another two months to run. Can Clermont last the pace? JC: I think the boys are looking really good. We’re seeing a lot of the younger boys coming through, and some of the older players had some time off during the Six Nations so we’re building towards a crescendo. In the past we have sometimes struggled at this stage but the squad is really strong this year and there’s a great camaraderie.RW: Describe the camaraderie. JC: We spend enormous amounts of time together and we’re lucky to have that balance in the squad so we know when to joke around and when to work hard, and that’s because of the respect for each other that runs through the squad. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Happy man: Jamie Cudmore is loving life at Clermont and is still going strong at 36 Clermont lock Jamie Cudmore looks ahead to the European Champions Cup semi-final against Saracens and talks about his new wine labelcenter_img In his ten years at Clermont, Jamie Cudmore has become a cult figure for the Yellow & Blue faithful who know him as “le bûcheron” (the lumberjack). The Canadian second-row has recently signed a one-year extension with the club and his physical presence inspires team-mates while intimidating opponents. But underneath the rugged 6ft 5in exterior, 36-year-old Cudmore is something of a wine connoisseur and has recently launched his own label – Sin Bin wine, playing on his reputation as a player who’s received the odd red and yellow card in his time.Rugby World caught up with him ahead of Clermont’s European Champions Cup semi-final against Saracens on Saturday…Rugby World: Any inkling before the Saints game that Clermont were going to touch greatness? Jamie Cudmore: It’s hard to say that we knew it was going to work out as well as it did (Clermont beat Northampton 37-5). We trained really hard during the week and knew we were facing some serious competition, and we switched it on.RW: A lot of people were predicting Saints lock Courtney Lawes would do to Clermont what he did to France… JC: I don’t focus on that kind of stuff. The game is so fast, there’s so much to remember, so many calls to focus on, that I’m too busy fulfilling my role to think about opponents.RW: How long does it take you personally to get in the zone before a match? JC: Doesn’t take long. Perhaps a few years ago I would have got in game mode a day before but I find that’s too early now. So during the day of a game I’m a normal guy, spending it with the kids, just doing normal things. It’s only when I’m strapping my boots that it’s time to go.RW: How do you feel about your image as an enforcer? JC: I’m not too worried about how I’m perceived. It’s funny and I play up to it at times, the whole pantomime villain thing.RW: So you’re a bit of a wine buff on the side? JC: The concept of the wine came from my wife, Jennifer. She put the business plan together when she was studying her MBA at Oxford and we let it lie while we were growing a family, then last year she wanted to get back into work and we decided to do the wine. The wine is from down the road from where we live. So it’s Auvergne, it’s local, and that’s important because we love this region and we want the wine to reflect that. RW: What should we read into Saturday’s shock home defeat to Oyonnax? JC: Nothing should be read into it, other than we lost to a very strong and pragmatic team with 15 (Clermont) changes from the week before. As always Euro Cup week ramps (it) up. Everyone’s focused and we will be ready to conquer on Saturday!RW: Can you hit the heights against Saracens that you did against Saints? JC: We have to stay hungry and humble. It’s the hunger that makes a team continue to perform; hunger to win the scrum, the lineouts, to make the tackles, to win the breakdown. The hungriest team will win.last_img read more

Russia qualify for Rugby World Cup 2019 in place of Romania

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Amidst calls for a review, several complaints then surfaced over potential eligibility breaches by a number of participating unions. An independent review was set in motion and they have today settled on a decision.The points deduction set forth in today’s ruling means that as well as Russia going into a World Cup pool alongside tournament hosts Japan, Ireland and Scotland, it also means that Spain will no longer take part in a play-off match with Portugal. Instead, Germany will play Portugal for the right to face Samoa. The winner of that tie will go into World Cup Pool A alongside Russia. The loser of that clash will go into the final repechage competition for the chance to qualify for the World Cup.Related: What are rugby’s eligibility rules? Russia qualify for Rugby World Cup 2019 in place of RomaniaRussia will replace Romania in Pool A of the 2019 Rugby World Cup, after an independent disputes committee’s review into circumstances surrounding the 2017 and 2018 Rugby Europe Championship, handed down points deductions for fielding ineligible players.Romania, Belgium and Spain all felt the committee’s sting – a five point deduction – after it was concluded that all three teams had selected players who did not qualify for them during their campaigns. The three unions have also all been handy hefty fines.The qualification process had already sparked outrage after Spain’s controversial loss to Belgium in the final round of the Championship. The loss was overseen by Romanian officials, and after the result – which initially handed Romania a spot in the World Cup – the post-match scenes turned ugly and the referee had to be escorted from the field.Related: Five Spain players banned for confronting referee On the matter of the match between Spain and Belgium, World Rugby did state that: “the way in which Rugby Europe dealt with Spain’s request for a change of match officials (in the build-up to the match) was not adequate.” However, they have declined to overturn he result.A 14-day appeal window is now open for those involved to appeal. Romania have exercised their option to challenge the ruling, stating: “The Romanian Rugby Federation cannot accept a decision in which teams that knowingly violate or ignore the regulations are treated identically to those who comply with all procedural steps required.” World Rugby hand down points deductions for Romania, Belgium and Spain after all three are adjudged to have fielded ineligible players.

Oímos respuestas cordiales y pastorales a problemas polarizantes, así como una nueva honradez acerca de la necesidad de un cambio.La Convención General trató una serie de cuestiones importantes que afectarán, en el futuro, la vida y el testimonio de esta Iglesia durante años, y que incluyen muchas más cosas más allá de lo que usted haya oído en las noticias. La forma en que trabajamos juntos también representó una nueva realidad, trabajando para adaptarnos de manera más creativa a nuestra diversa naturaleza como Iglesia.Es esa forma de compromiso creativo la que a la larga será la más transformadora de la Iglesia Episcopal y en el mundo más allá de ella. Tema tras tema, las resoluciones presentadas por la Convención General surgieron en respuestas creativas que consideraron, pero no terminaron en las posiciones polarizadas que se esperaban cuando íbamos a la Convención. La gente escuchaba ante los movimientos del espíritu y discernía un camino a seguir que era mutuamente edificante, en lugar de crear una mayor división o resultados de ganar-perder.Los temas candentes de la última década no han sido eternamente resueltos, pero hemos, como cuerpo, encontrado formas creativas y pastorales para vivir con las diferencias de opinión, en lugar de recurrir a viejos patrones de conflicto. Hay una cierta gracia expansiva en cómo se han tomando estas decisiones y en las respuestas que se les ha dado, una gracia que es una reminiscencia del acuerdo isabelino. Hemos dicho, como Iglesia, que no existe ningún impedimento en la participación de las minorías de todo tipo, y estamos encontrando formas pastorales para asegurar que una posible ofensa en el comportamiento o en la posición de otro se reduzca al mínimo, con la esperanza de que podamos crecer celebrando esa diversidad como un don de Dios. Si todos somos pecadores, entonces cada uno de nosotros puede estar equivocado acerca de lo que opinamos. Los seres humanos, hechos de humus, se convierten en cristos cuando conocen la humildad.Los principales temas abordados en la Convención General incluyen la aprobación de un rito de prueba para bendecir uniones del mismo sexo. Puede ser utilizado en las congregaciones a partir de Adviento, con la aprobación del obispo diocesano. Los obispos están dando variadas respuestas al rito – un buen ejemplo de esta realidad emergente de la adaptación local en función del contexto – algo que es profundamente anglicano.La decisión de proporcionar un rito de prueba para bendecir uniones del mismo sexo fue anticipada por muchos en la Iglesia, algunos con temor y temblor, otros con júbilo, y todavía otros con la frustración de que no se les ofreciera más. La decisión de la Convención General puede que no haya satisfecho totalmente a nadie, sin embargo, ha proporcionado más espacio para la diferencia de lo que muchos esperaban. El rito debe ser autorizado por un obispo diocesano, lo que permite a los obispos que lo creen inapropiado salvaguardar su propia posición teológica. Algunas de las respuestas de los obispos con preguntas sobre la idoneidad de estos ritos en sus diócesis muestran creatividad y enorme respeto pastoral hacia los que apoyan tales bendiciones. El uso de este rito está abierto a la opción local, de la misma manera que a menudo pensamos acerca de la confesión privada: ” todos pueden, algunos deben, ninguno tiene [que hacerlo]”.La Convención General también ofreció respuestas creativas a una serie de otros temas difíciles, en particular, el construir la paz en Israel y Palestina, el Pacto Anglicano, y el llamado a la restructuración de la Iglesia Episcopal. Las resoluciones adoptadas reflejan un mayor nivel de inversión en el vigor de las diversas opiniones y posiciones sobe la Iglesia de lo que hemos visto durante mucho tiempo. Podemos celebrar un poco lo de “crecer hasta llegar a la plena estatura de Cristo” y el tipo de bienvenida que afirmamos ejemplificar: “La Iglesia Episcopal le da la bienvenida”, quienquiera que usted sea y opine lo que opine. Como Iglesia, cuando estamos en nuestro mejor momento, creemos sinceramente que esa diversidad nos ayuda a conducirnos hacia la mente de Cristo.El llamado a la restructuración de la Iglesia es una respuesta a la creciente toma de conciencia de las bases de que debemos cambiar o morir. He oído decirlo de esta manera: “No es una cuestión de tradición o de cambio, ¡la tradición ES el cambio!”. Vivimos en una época de rápidos cambios, y si vamos a ser fieles a nuestro trabajo bautismal de ir al mundo y proclamar el evangelio, nuestros métodos y sistemas de apoyo también tienen que cambiar. Tenemos que ser más sensibles y capaces de participar en las oportunidades, ser más ágiles.Ágil no es una palabra normalmente asociada con las iglesias episcopales, pero la pasión y la energía demostradas en nuestra Convención General se orientan sin duda en esa dirección. La mayoría de nosotros probablemente asociamos esa palabra con Mother Goose y Jack, que son lo suficientemente ágiles como para saltar por encima del candelero. Pero hay una peculiaridad en el ministerio de Jesús que tiene algo que ver con una capacidad de respuesta flexible y creativa que podría llamarse ágil. Sin duda, así se caracterizó la explosión de sus seguidores por todo el mundo mediterráneo y luego por India, África y Europa. Agilidad tiene algo que ver con la aceptación de riesgos creativos, puede tener un carácter lúdico que también es profundamente creativo, y que participa de la alegría.Estamos en busca de una Iglesia episcopal para el siglo XXI que pueda adaptarse y responder a una miríada de diversos contextos locales y a las oportunidades misioneras. Hemos comenzado a darnos cuenta, muy ampliamente a través de la Iglesia, que la forma en que hemos “hecho iglesia” durante el último siglo o más ya no se ajusta a muchos de nuestros contextos. No hemos sido muy eficaces en la evangelización con las poblaciones que no tienen iglesia, no hemos sido muy eficaces en la retención de los niños nacidos de padres episcopales, las estructuras familiares están cambiando y nuestra capacidad para atender las necesidades de esas familias no ha seguido el mismo ritmo, ya sea que estamos hablando de las Mujeres de la Iglesia Episcopal [por su sigla en inglés, ECW] y de las mujeres en el mundo laboral, o de las familias monoparentales, o de los niños con necesidades especiales.La Convención General decidió responder a las necesidades de un cambio estructural, al observar la manera en que vivimos, nos movemos y tenemos nuestro ser como Iglesia. Un grupo de trabajo será creado para que escuche ampliamente dentro de la Iglesia y ofrezca una propuesta a finales del 2014.La Convención General aprobó un presupuesto para el próximo trienio sobre la base de las Cinco Marcas de la Misión Anglicana, que incluye algunas iniciativas creativas en colaboración con las diócesis, con otras partes de la Comunión Anglicana, o con aquellas iglesias con las que estamos en plena comunión o de otra índole. Un ejemplo notable: “Las zonas de iniciativas misioneras” van a facilitar iniciativas creativas en el ámbito diocesano, financiadas en colaboración con la Iglesia en general.La Convención General pidió que se formara un grupo de trabajo para que estudie nuestra teología del matrimonio. Sorprendentemente, esto sucedió solo unos pocos días después que la Provincia Anglicana de Aotearoa, Nueva Zelanda y Polinesia hicieran lo mismo. Esto puede ofrecer algunas oportunidades muy creativas para el estudio a través de las fronteras provinciales en la Comunión Anglicana.La Convención General afirmó la aplicación del Plan de salud de la denominación, y ofreció cierta mayor flexibilidad y más tiempo para abordar cuestiones de paridad de atención de salud a los laicos y al clero empleados a nivel diocesano.Todo este trabajo creativo significa que emergemos con abundante esperanza, mejor disciplina para trabajar juntos y con socios más allá de esta Iglesia, para nuestra fundamental razón de ser: el compromiso con la misión de Dios. Hemos ido más allá del conflicto arraigado de los últimos años. Rezo para que nuestra creciente confianza sea un signo de nueva humildad, sabiendo que somos criaturas finitas que siempre pueden estar equivocadas, que podemos realizar la obra de Dios solamente como parte del Cuerpo, y que el desacuerdo es un signo de posibilidad.Parece que Dios todavía puede utilizar esta Iglesia, si podemos recordar nuestro foco central: amar a Dios y a nuestro prójimo como a nosotros mismos, dondequiera que vayamos, y dondequiera que nos encontremos. Que Dios bendiga nuestro viaje, y que sepamos viajar ligeros de equipaje.La Reverendísima Katharine Jefferts SchoriObispa Presidente y PrimadoLa Iglesia Episcopal An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Director of Music Morristown, NJ Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Featured Jobs & Calls Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Associate Rector Columbus, GA Submit a Press Release Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector Belleville, IL Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Posted Aug 3, 2012 Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Featured Events Rector Collierville, TN Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Hopkinsville, KY Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector Tampa, FL Rector Knoxville, TN Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GAlast_img read more

ENS Photo/Lynette Wilson[Episcopal News Service – Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic] The microbus carrying Episcopalians from Michigan and South Carolina hugged the Caribbean coastline as it traveled east on Highway 3 from Santo Domingo to Boca Chica, the first of seven stops to visit missions and ministries of the Iglesia Episcopal Dominicana. In the days following, the microbus would go west and then north, stopping at churches, schools, health clinics and child-care and elder-care facilities.La Iglesia Episcopal Dominicana and its ministries are growing and thriving through strong leadership, evangelism and the help of its many U.S.-based partners.  In 2012 alone, 70 mission teams from the United States visited the Dominican Republic.“It has a lot to do with ’emprendedor’ [enterprising] of the bishop [Julio C. Holguín] and his vision for moving the church forward,” said Bishop Wilfrido Ramos-Orench, the Episcopal Church’s global partnerships officer for Province IX.Clergy and laity have taken ownership and shared in that vision along with the Dominican Development Group, he added. “The goal is to be self-sufficient through partnership by 2015.”  The Episcopal Church of the Dominican Republic is one of seven Province IX dioceses spread across the Caribbean and Central and northern South America, and it is one of the fastest-growing dioceses in the Episcopal Church. In 1998, the Dominican Development Group was established to assist in the development and self-sufficiency of the Dominican Episcopal Church. In 15 years, it has raised more than $10 million to finance the building of infrastructure, including churches, schools, day-care centers and medical clinics.It is a model, said Ramos-Orench, that can be learned from across Province IX, which in March of 2012 adopted self-sufficiency as a focus. [The Diocese of Puerto Rico, which operates an extensive health-care system, is the only self-sufficient diocese in the province.]The Dominican Republic occupies the eastern two-thirds of the island of Hispaniola, with the other third belonging to Haiti, where the Episcopal Church’s largest diocese is located.The Dominican diocese has grown by 20 percent in the last 10 years and decreased its dependency on the Episcopal Church from 84 percent to 18 percent in the last 20. Since 1991, the number of churches has grown from 24 to more than 70 missions and preaching stations, including 37 church buildings up from 13. The number of schools has increased from seven to 27, according to statistics kept by the Dominican Development Group. And in 20 years, the number of Episcopalians in the Dominican Republic has grown from 2,500 to 8,000.Evidence of that growth can be found in both of the Rev. Adolfo Moronta’s churches. At San Pablo y San Lucas in San Isidro, his congregation of 50 to 60 people is preparing to begin construction on a church building. At De La Gracia in Boca Chica, Moronta took the congregation from two members to 42 members in six months.The church is growing, he said, because of its strong connection to the people.“We can have a personal relationship with people, visit their homes and get to know their families and their needs and also what their talents are [for lay leadership in the church],” Moronta told ENS. “We’re not just healthy spiritually, but pastorally.”On April 14, more than 2,000 people gathered for a Eucharist celebrating the diocese’s growth, 116 years of existence and 100 years in the Episcopal Church. Those attending included some 70 Americans in companion relationships with the diocese.One hundred years in the Episcopal Church holds great significance, Bishop Holguín told ENS, because, “even though we live on an island, we are not isolated.“The celebration moves us forward to carry out the mission of God; we are a mission church, and that is what we are celebrating, mission,” he said. “That’s why we say ‘encountering mission’ and wanted the participation of companion dioceses.”The diocese has more than a dozen companion relationships with U.S. dioceses, including East Carolina, Eastern Michigan, Michigan, Western Michigan, Georgia, Nebraska, Northwest Texas, South Carolina, Virginian, Southwest Florida and Western Louisiana. Most, if not all, were represented at the Eucharist and in the preceding days during a three-day encounter hosted by the diocese to educate its partners about the church’s mission projects across the country.Many of the visitors from the United States stayed on for the bus tour to visit churches and diocesan ministries April 15-17, including members of all three lower Michigan dioceses.A few years ago, three bishops representing the three lower peninsula dioceses in Michigan – Easter, Western and Michigan – traveled to the Dominican Republic on an exploratory trip and quickly learned “it was not about money, but about bringing people together,” said Eastern Michigan Bishop Todd Ousley, during the encounter, “Juntos Podemos: Encuentro en Misión con Iglepidom” or “Together we can: Encounter in Mission with the Episcopal Diocese of the Dominican Republic.”“Mission like is about relationship, and it takes time,” said Ousley.Time spent building relationships in the Dominican Republic has opened “our eyes to the possibility of a revitalized spirit,” he said. “We’re a small diocese and small churches, so relationship is key for us. And it’s the same here, [Bishop] Julio helps me see that.”The Rev. Bonnie Smith, deacon at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and Calvary Lutheran in Elk Rapids in the Diocese of Western Michigan, had visited the Dominican Republic before as part of a team of medical professionals. A pediatric nurse, she jumped at the chance to visit the church as a representative of her diocese and to evaluate how best the diocese might get involved more closely, she said.She was impressed by the diocese’s many building projects underway, as well as its energy and spirit, she said.“Evangelism is coming from the heart,” Smith said. “In the U.S. we tend to be more cerebral.”Teenagers play basketball at Todos Los Santos in La Romana. ENS Photo/Lynette WilsonThis year, 60 mission teams already are scheduled to visit the diocese, said Bill Kunkle, incoming executive director of the Dominican Development Group. He will take over for Bob Stevens, who has led the organization since its founding and will continue to work with the church in Province IX as a consultant.Kunkle, a building contractor and a member of St. Mark’s in Tampa, Florida, first visited the Dominican Republic in 200. From there, he said, mission slowly wrapped itself around everything in his life.Part of his job, he said, is to continue to build strong companion relationships in mission, but he also confronts challenges. For instance, the diocese is looking at new ways to fund the operation of Clínica Esperanza y Caridad, a public-health clinic in the coastal town of San Pedro Macorís that served more than 20,000 patients last year.The clinic is staffed by the government’s public-health ministry but operated by the diocese, which also offers an HIV/AIDS program out of the clinic run by Dr. Michael Dohn, a long-time missionary. As funding for HIV/AIDS programs has begun to dry up, the diocese needs to find another way to fund the clinic, Kunkle said.Patrick Haughney, director of international programs for Water Missions International, and a member of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, test the water quality at one of the stops on the bus tour April 15. Haughney tested the water at all of the stops for turbidity, salinity and other measures of water quality. ENS Photo/Lynette WilsonOn April 15, the bus tour stopped at the clinic.  The bus also stopped at various schools and proposed technical schools and churches. Participants learned that tourism, agriculture and manufacturing in free-trade zones provide most of the country’s job opportunities, but in some regions the unemployment rate exceeds 60 percent and can reach 80 percent.The hardest thing for Americans engaging in mission in places like the Dominican Republic, where 18 percent of the population lives in extreme poverty, is suppressing the urge to take over, said the Rev. Linda Sue Crane, deacon at Grace Episcopal Church in Port Huron in the Diocese of Eastern Michigan.“We’re here to show them that they can make their dreams happen,” she said. “As deacons we are icons of the church. Our job is to go out into the world and bring the needs back.”Loretta Tabor of All Saints Episcopal Church in Hilton Head in the Episcopal Church in South Carolina said she was impressed by what she learned during the encounter and saw on the bus tour.“These are people who really live the way Christ intended us to live, they share everything,” she said. “What we can do really is a drop in the bucket.”— Lynette Wilson is an Episcopal News Service editor and reporter.  Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Self-Sustainability Rector Belleville, IL Featured Events An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET center_img Tags Cathedral Dean Boise, ID TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Curate Diocese of Nebraska Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Immigration forum at Houston cathedral addresses immigrant concerns

first_img Lawyers, community and religious leaders participate in immigration forum at Christ Church Cathedral in Houston. Photo: Diocese of Texas[Episcopal Diocese of Texas] In an effort to educate and assist the immigrant community of Houston, Christ Church Cathedral held an immigration forum with attorneys and community leaders to inform immigrants of their rights and to discuss the Trump administration’s new focus on deportations.The forum was hosted by the Rev. Simón Bautista, canon missioner for latino ministries and outreach at the cathedral.Recent executive orders, as well as Texas State Senate Bill 4, will require all Texas law enforcement agencies to comply with U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) agents. The move is provoking anxiety among a vulnerable population of immigrants in the U.S. without documentation who fear being profiled under what is effectively a sanctuary city ban.“Bishop Andy Doyle, the Episcopal Diocese of Texas and Christ Church Cathedral welcome everyone. This is a place blessed by your presence,” said the Rev. Barkley S. Thompson, dean of Christ Church Cathedral.Getting advice from lawyers instead of notaries, carrying up-to-date identification and calling state legislators to ask them to vote against SB 4 were the key pieces of advice given by the panel.“Have doubts of the news you see and read on social media. It is better to get your information from your consulate,” said Ignacio Pinto-León, a Houston attorney.During a Q&A, participants asked the experts about their particular cases. Many wondered how long it would take for their petitions for permanent residency to be approved because they wanted a way to work towards American citizenship. Others attended the forum to be informed and to help family members and friends.“The recent political (actions) have put everyone on edge because it puts people that are undocumented in a fearful state,” said Fabian Berrios, a member of San Mateo, Bellaire. “It’s important to stay informed and help those who are seeking assistance.The Rev. Willie Bennett, an organizer with The Metropolitan Organization, encourages immigrants to talk to their clergy and express their worry.“It is going to take a diverse community such as the one here at Christ Church Cathedral to teach and share the reality of what we are going through. I challenge you to share your story—it’s the only way we can make a change long term,” Bennett said.“The value of these informational forums is that they offer a unique opportunity (for) people to hear credible information about their concerns, their issues, their personal cases or of their acquaintances,” Bautista said. “These forums unite religious and community organizations, consulates and lawyers in one place for one common interest. We, at the cathedral, are proud to be able to collaborate in these offerings.”Read article in Spanish here. By Paulette E.
