Notes for Episcopal Chaplains (and Others)

I have a couple of things I want to bring to your attention. First, a new edition of the AHN Newsletter is up on the Anglican Health Network web site. It's always a good reminder of healthcare activities across the Communion, many of which are supported in our institutions and our dioceses in the Episcopal Church. This edition has something closer to home: an article by AEHC member Matt Cobb about chaplaincy, AEHC, and international connections. The article begins on page 6. Go take a look.

And while you're looking, there's other articles of interest. On page 5 there's an article on chaplaincy in the National Health Service in the UK. It's an opportunity to consider a different model. The next article is from a psychologist at Rush University. Episcopal chaplaincy is well represented at Rush/Pres/St. Luke's from Bishop Anderson House. Spend some time with these and other articles in the AHN Newsletter.

The second thing I want to let you know about is plans for our AEHC events when the Association of Professional Chaplains (APC) meets next month in Dallas (you can get more details about the APC events here). All of our events will take place Friday, March 25, at the convention hotel, the Hyatt Regency DFW. Our speaker at the Banquet will be Lee Hogan, Program Director for the Anglican Health Network. Here is the schedule of events:

7:15- Holy Eucharist
9:15-Annual meeting
6:00p- Pre-Banquet reception in the Hospitality Suite Rm. # 1372
7:00- Banquet- Lee Hogan Program Director for the Anglican Health Network.

The cost of these events will be $100 total. Please send your registration and money to the address below:

Babs France
4223 Swift Ave
San Diego, CA 92104-6605

Folks on the AEHC e-list have received notice and a registration form, and there will also be a mailing to AEHC members; but there's no need for you to wait.  Send your contact information and a check by March 11, and we'll be happy to have you join us.
So, check out the AHN Newsletter. Then, make plans to hear a representative of AHN when we gather for our annual meeting. I hope to see all of you there.
