CUAC’s General Secretary Canon Jamie Callaway was among the forty recipients of Archbishop of Canterbury Awards at Lambeth Palace on March 31st, four of whom have ties to CUAC. He received the St. Augustine's Cross for Services to the Anglican Communion recognizing thirty years of partnership with Anglican Provinces in Africa while at Trinity Church, New York, high points of which were establishing the CPSA Net computer network in South Africa supporting Desmond Tutu’s witness against apartheid and the 2007 Walking to Emmaus Conference in El Escorial Spain, which drew together over thirty African bishops and their Episcopal Church partners. Receiving the Alphege Award for Evangelism and Witness, was the Revd Pamela Cooper who served as chaplain at Poole Gakuin University in Osaka, Japan, a CUAC member. A Lanfranc Award for Education and Scholarship went to Dr. Eeva John who is assisting the birth of a new Anglican University in Juba, South Sudan, and to The Revd David Vivian Day, former principal at St. John’s College, Durham, for establishing the Center for Christian Communication.
While not among the official instruments of unity, The Colleges and Universities of the Anglican Communion are critical components of the DNA of ministry that unites the churches while serving their communities.
