Although the distance is great, their fellowship is tiny in South America and it’s a tad grandiose to say they ARE the Anglicans of South America…The Episcopal Church has Dioceses in Honduras, Ecuador (2), Columbia, Venezuela, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and the American Virgin Islands (also cosponsors Cuba). Brazil, of course, is the largest ANGLICAN group of all and most dynamic on the actual Continent of South America. It is my opinion, that the Southern Cone ought best identify as a province of Gafcon or the ACNA. Let’s get and stay honest, por favor as they certainly don’t represent ANGLICANS in South America as a whole.

The twinning project would give Oxford students the possibility of studying electives in Al-Quds Univeristy, allow for a greater share of resources between the medical schools, and establish of a long term relationship between the two universities.Proponents of this twinning initiative also hope to set up a scholarship to fund postgraduate studies of Gazan students.Omar Abdel-Mannan, President of OSM said “We have the support of a number of top people in the Oxford Medical School”. Abdel-Mannan hopes to generate support within the student body for the twinning initiative, then present the case to the dean of clinical studies.last_img read more
