First woman priest honored

A fearless Anglican bishop, discerning a match between wartime need and a uniquely gifted person, ordained a humble yet steel-spined disciple of Christ into the priesthood. The bishop was Ronald Hall of Victoria and the ordinand was Hong-Kong-born Li Tim-Oi, the church’s first woman priest.Later, graciously relinquishing her licence in the face of Canterbury-led reaction from the establishment, Li continued her ministry during the Japanese occupation and the Communist regime that followed.On January 25, 2014, the 70th anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Florence Li Tim-Oi’s ordination was the leitmotif of a choral eucharist celebrating the ordination of women at Toronto’s Cathedral Church of St. James. Organized with the University of Waterloo’s Renison University College, which holds Li’s archives, and presided over by Bishop Linda Nicholls of the diocese of Toronto, the service honoured Li’s unwavering ministry during the war and the Cultural Revolution.From Lambeth Palace, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby sent greetings, noting that Li Tim-Oi “had been given the gift of priesthood” and that though she resigned her licence in the face of controversy, she never resigned her priestly orders but served God all her life.” Tim-Oi means “much beloved,” and Welby said she “was a gift to the worldwide Anglican Church and will continue to be much beloved for all that she did.”Archbishop of Toronto and Metropolitan of Ontario Colin Johnson welcomed attendees and praised Bishop Hall for his visionary decision. Archbishop Fred Hiltz, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, called the pioneering priest “a woman who is remembered for the Christ-like nature of her character.” He added that “she lived her vocation as a priest with such a faithfulness and quiet dignity that it convinced many across the Anglican Communion that the Holy Spirit works as wondrously among women as among men.”Renison’s Chancellor Ralph Spence called her “one of the true saints of the church…a determined Christian who set an example.”Reading a wartime excerpt from Li’s autobiography, Raindrops of my Life, Li Tim-Oi’s niece, Sze Sze Lee, revealed how her aunt felt compelled to preach the gospel of Christ no matter the circumstances.With a choir gathered from several Chinese-Canadian parishes, the Rev. Philip Der of St. Christopher’s, North York and Richmond Hill, Ont., was cantor in a responsive singing of the Lord’s Prayer in Cantonese.From the pulpit, Canon Judy Rois, executive director of the Anglican Foundation of Canada, called the occasion a day to remember “the hard work, resolve and dedication of women in the priesthood” and a day to “thank all those who helped us get here…who held our hand and dried our tears”—those who stood in solidarity with women when it was unpopular to do so.With 38 years of women’s ordination in Canada behind us, the homilist recalled her time in the 1990s as the cathedral’s first woman vicar. Once, when filling in at a Friday mass, she began the liturgy with her back to a congregation of about 10. When she turned to face them for the Collect, not a soul remained to receive the sacrament. Had they left because of her gender, she wondered?But her disappointments two decades into women’s ordination in this country were small compared with the obstacles faced by Li Tim-Oi, Rois said. Noting that there are now more than 700 women clergy in Canada and 35 women bishops in the Anglican Communion, Rois said that the story that began with women in our sacred scriptures, and continued down through the ages, is still being written today by women writing chapters in their lives and that of the church. “It is a better world when we all work and serve together as the body of Christ…a world where there is a place-card for everyone at God’s table.” Heather Huyck says: Rector Martinsville, VA Anglican Communion, People, January 28, 2014 at 8:19 pm I am greatly encouraged by the stories of courage above. As a deacon in the Diocese of Sydney where women are not yet ordained as priests, I take comfort from those who celebrated the life and ministry of Li Tim-Oi.

NI charities bill takes another step forward

first_imgCharity Commission Chief Executive Frances McCandless said: “The Social Development Minister and Assembly Members rightly recognise that we are keen to begin the charity registration process and we very much welcome this latest legislative step. “In the meantime we will continue with our regulatory work using our present powers, as well as preparing for a public consultation on our public benefit and registration ./guidance”. Meanwhile, the Assembly also endorsed the extension to Northern Ireland of the Small Charitable Donations Bill which will allow Gift Aid reclaim for cash donations under £20. The Bill’s policy objective is linked to the UK Government’s Big Society agenda and its aim is to encourage charitable giving and to build a more socially conscious society. The scheme will apply only to small cash donations of £20 or less and it will be open to organisations with a good track record of claiming Gift Aid for at least three tax years. There will be an annual limit of £5,000 per organisation on donations eligible for the top-up payment www.charitycommissionni.org.uk Tagged with: Ireland Law / policy Northern Ireland NI charities bill takes another step forward Howard Lake | 27 November 2012 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

She said:“We regularly hear from candidates who are trying to break into the Charity sector, whether that be graduates looking to get a foot in the door or people looking for a career change. Charity Apprentice offers a unique way to gain practical, CV enhancing experience and a deeper knowledge of the types of career which exist in the sector. We’re really pleased to see the launch of such a useful and worthwhile foundation course.”Charity Apprentice is already offering students some attractive opportunities: UK charity the Kenyan Orphan Project has launched Charity Apprentice, a year-long part-time course for those keen to develop a career in the charity sector. It is currently open for its first annual intake.The course runs for a year from December, and requires a minimum of 4-6 hours a week or 20 hours a month. It is aimed at university students, graduates, professionals looking to make a career change or those with an interest in international development.It is divided into six modules, including fundraising, social enterprise and communications. There is an emphasis balancing practical and theoretical skills. The course culminates in a one-month stay in Kenya, where students will learn about international development, global health and the impact a career in the third sector can have.Organisers say that they established the foundation course in response to demand from volunteers. They say that more than 3,000 people have already registered interest in the course.The charity says that it is happy to accept participants from the UK and internationally.For the 2014/15 intake, registration closes on 30 November at midnight.The Charity Apprentice course costs £800. This includes all the teaching materials, online resources, assessment and one whole month’s stay and activities at a project in Kenya or Tanzania.

It will also include educational content such as TED videos, online articles and contributions from other charity sector workers and specialists.Thomas Muirhead, Managing Director of KOP, said:“The course is aimed at those interested in learning how to practically change the world. The sector and how it works remains opaque to most people who don’t work in it. So with Charity Apprentice we want to give applicants a taste by actually doing some of the jobs that you would be applying for. It’s like an internship and a learning course mixed into one”Initial charity reaction has been positive.

While holding that NBE is not bound by the Advisories of Medical Council of India, the Single Bench of Justice Asha Menon noted that the doctrines of promissory estoppel and legitimate expectation doesn’t apply to matters of education. The order has come in a petition seeking the setting aside of Public Notice dated 04/04/20, by the NBE, which has extended the period for completing the training of final year DNB students by a period of six weeks due to the ongoing COVID19 pandemic. Arguments made by the Petitioners The Petitioners argued that the NBE had no powers vested in it to vary the training period, which has been in a discriminatory manner as it pertains only to the final year students and not to the first and second year students. While citing that the disputed notice suffers from uncertainty as it uses the phrase ’till further orders’, the Petitioners submitted that the said extension of training period seriously affected their careers as they could not take up job offers from various hospitals. Calling the explanation given by the NBE a sham, which had cited COVID19 as a reason for the extension of completion period, the Petitioners contended that the Medical Council of India had itself exempted the doctors in their super-speciality training programmes, including the D.M. and M.Ch. from Covid-19 duties and there was no reason why the training of the Petitioners was required to be extended. Arguments Advanced by NBE Appearing for the Union of India, ASG Maninder Acharya submitted that the extension of training was justified in public interest in that, due to the disturbance caused by the COVID19 pandemic, fresh infusion of DNB candidates was not possible as the entrance exam cannot be held and if the final year DNB students are allowed to leave, it would have resulted in an exodus with no infusion, leading to a vacuum, which would have adversely impacted the public health system. While arguing that promissory estoppel cannot apply to issues of education, Ms Acharya contended that the final year students are much more skilled than the first year and second year students and therefore, they were all of different categories and there was no discrimination. Observations of the Court The court refused the Petitioners’ argument regarding the public notice being ambiguous by noting that what is known to the world at large as constituting “special circumstances”, particularly to doctors working in the hospitals, even as DNB trainees, did not need spelling out in the Public Notice. While holding that NBE is an independent body which is not bound by the Advisories of MCI, the court observed that just because the MCI has exempted their D.M. and M.Ch. trainees from detention for extended training, the NBE is not bound to follow suit to similarly exempt the DNB trainees who are in super-speciality. Therefore, the court observed, NBE is vested with supervening powers which include the extension of training period in extraordinary or special circumstances. While rejecting the argument of the Petitioners regarding the violation of Article 14 of the Constitution, the court observed that: ‘the first year, second year and third year students are not ‘equals’ as they are at different levels of skills. Moreover, as rightly pointed out by the learned ASG, it is the movement of the final year students from the hospitals that would create a gap in health services. Further, as the first and second year students are still available at the hospitals they shall have the time to continue their training in specialized fields, once the acute and emergent demand on health services eases. That may not be the position if the third year students are allowed to leave with whatever training they have received. Therefore, the Public Notice dated 04.04.2020 is not discriminatory and is based on intelligible differentia and bears nexus to the objects sought to be achieved.’ While noting that the doctrine of legitimate expectation cannot apply to the present case, the court highlighted that doctors cannot seek that a vested personal interest be placed above public interest, as they are the only ones who can take care of patients with their skills and aptitude.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

While hearing an application moved by DU law student, Harshita Singhal, the bench comprised of Justices Arun Mishra, Vineet Saran and MR Shah observed, “The tracking of biomedical waste generated; collected; processed and recycled needs to be improved urgently by adopting the bar-code system, as specified in the [Bio-Medical Waste (Management and Handling)] 2016 Rules which has not yet been implemented completely.” The intervention application was moved in a writ petition of 1985, titled MC Mehta v. Union of India & Ors. Finding three private hospitals to be operating without the bar code system, the bench directed the concerned authorities to hold a meeting forthwith and take immediate measures to clear the bio-medical waste. “Let a meeting of the Central Pollution Control Board, Delhi Pollution Control Board and EPCA and the requisite stakeholders of the concerned Departments of the Central Government and Delhi Government and National Capital Region, including the representatives of the Corporations be called for urgently within three days from today and steps be taken with respect to clearing bio-medical waste of various hospitals and that of Corona patients,” the order states. The Court has also directed the hospitals concerned to ensure that bio-medical waste is not dumped in the open area and is properly segregated and disposed of. “Let a concrete action plan be prepared in this regard with respect to bio-medical waste and be submitted to this Court before the next date of hearing,” the court directed. The Court also considered other environmental issues that were previously raised on the petition. On the issue of massive air pollution and smog in Delhi, the bench was “literally shocked” at the attitude of the Government with respect to installation of Smog Towers. “It was directed that the smog towers be installed within three months, but unfortunately, neither the Agreement has been entered into nor the requisite drawings have been obtained. The affidavit that has been filed is so much laconic and it is painful to note that the real intention is not to comply with the order of this Court and there is absolutely no respect shown to the order passed by this Court and for compliance of the order passed by this Court by the concerned respondents,” the bench remarked. In its order dated January 13, 2020, the Top Court had asked the Delhi Government to complete the installation of the proposed Smog Tower at Connaught Place within three months. Further, directions were issued for installation of a similar tower at Anand Vihar. Shocked by absolute disregard of its orders, the bench has directed the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change and the Delhi Government to enter into an agreement, “positively within seven days” and place a compliance report on the next date of hearing, i.e., July 29. It added, “In case the aforesaid directions are not complied with, we direct the personal appearance of the Secretary to the Government, MoEF and the concerned Secretary to the Govt. of NCT of Delhi on the next date of hearing, to explain as to why they have not complied with the order passed by this Court so far.” So far as piling of garbage by the sides of Railway Tracks is concerned, the bench has asked the Railway Department as well as the Municipal Corporations to submit an action plan on the next date of hearing. “It is made clear that if the action plan is not submitted within the stipulated time, appropriate action will be taken against the concerned individuals,” the bench said and listed this aspect of the matter for hearing in first week of August.
