Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID) and how editors should cover stories of families and caregivers occupied an extended panel presentation. Writers need to say what is happening from a caring, supportive and sensitive perspective, suggested the doctors and chaplains on the panel.

The editors also received a preliminary report and update from the working group on publications, especially the Anglican Journal and indirectly diocesan papers. See more in my HOLLIStorial.

Over 20 editors and staff, as well as representatives from PWRDF and the Anglican Foundation, attended the four-day conference – the 29th in its history. Niagara Diocese hosted the 25th anniversary conference
