La Diócesis de Cuba se unirá a la Provincia II de TEC, que incluye otras dos diócesis del Caribe: Haití y las Islas Vírgenes.El Obispo Presidente Michael Curry alienta a todos los episcopales a participar en la campaña como un momento común de misión. “Esto es parte del trabajo de reconciliación, que nos une a través de divisiones históricas. Esto no es sólo la recaudación de fondos; es seguir a Jesús y encontrar nuestro camino de regreso común”, dijo.Cuando la Iglesia Episcopal de Cuba se separó de La Iglesia Episcopal en 1966, los beneficios, incluidas las contribuciones de pensiones para el clero, ya no estaban disponibles. Con la readmisión, La Iglesia Episcopal cree que la justicia requiere que el clero cubano sea tratado de la misma manera que el clero de toda La Iglesia Episcopal.Dirigida por la Rvdma. Griselda Delgado Del Carpio, la ECC es una iglesia que está creciendo y tiene un impacto cada vez mayor en las comunidades de toda Cuba. Con 46 congregaciones y misiones dirigidas por 23 sacerdotes, junto con un liderazgo laico activo, sirve a 10.000 episcopales cubanos y sus vecinos. Su presupuesto operativo en 2017, que también incluye todas las compensaciones del clero, fue de 155.000 dólaresLa Rvdma. Katharine Jefferts Schori, 26ª Obispa Presidente de La Iglesia Episcopal, exhorta a la Iglesia a “regocijarse del regreso de los episcopales cubanos a este cuerpo y ofrecer lo que podamos por el bienestar de aquellos que han servido durante tanto tiempo y con fidelidad”.Actualmente, el salario promedio de los 23 clérigos cubanos actuales es de 55 dólares al mes. Cuando se jubilen, los miembros del clero no serán elegibles de ninguna pensión estatal o seguridad social porque el gobierno cubano no reconoce su servicio como un empleo.La campaña busca recaudar una cantidad única de 800.000 dólares para el 9 de junio de 2019. Esto proporcionará fondos para contribuciones pasadas que producirán beneficios futuros de jubilación a 23 clérigos activos, tres clérigos retirados y un cónyuge sobreviviente. Los fondos se colocarán en el Fondo de Pensiones de la Iglesia y, eventualmente, los beneficios de pensión estarán disponibles para el clero elegible.La Iglesia Episcopal de Cuba se remonta a 1901, cuando la Cámara de los Obispos de La Iglesia Episcopal estableció el Distrito Misionero de Cuba bajo la jurisdicción del Obispo Presidente. Durante la década de 1960, el gobierno dirigido por Fidel Castro comenzó a tomar medidas enérgicas contra la religión, encarcelando a los líderes religiosos y creyentes. Debido a que la mayor parte de la interacción entre Cuba y Estados Unidos fue embargada, en 1966, la ECC se convirtió en una diócesis autónoma dentro de la Comunión Anglicana, bajo la supervisión de un Consejo Metropolitano compuesto por los Primados de la Iglesia Anglicana de Canadá, la Iglesia en la Provincia del West Indies, y La Iglesia Episcopal.La campaña está copresidida por el reverendo Matthew Heyd, rector de la Iglesia del Descanso Celestial [Church of the Heavenly Rest], y el reverendo Dr. William Lupfer, rector de Trinity Church Wall Street, e incluye una generosa participación del Rvdmo. Chip Stokes, Diócesis de Nueva Jersey; Francis Armstrong, Fondo de Pensiones de la Iglesia; los Amigos de la Iglesia Episcopal en Cuba; La Iglesia Episcopal, y otros líderes de campaña y asesores.Las donaciones para la campaña se pueden hacer en efectivo, en promesas o valores.

Anderson had led the offense for over three seasons, racking up 118 straight starts. He ranked second in TCU basketball history in minutes and games played and led the team in scoring for three straight seasons.While the season hasn’t gone the way head coach Trent Johnson has hoped, it looks like he has found his point guard of the present and future in Chauncey Collins.After playing about nine minutes per game his freshman season, Collins has taken the reins and now leads the team in minutes played. He averages 29.8 minutes a game and has played over 100 minutes more than any of his teammates.Johnson, who spoke with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, said he has seen significant changes in Collins over the past year.“He had so much going on last year in terms of his lack of commitment to practice, and he had some stuff going on school-wise, he just wasn’t right,” Johnson said. “He’s gotten better every year. He’s a lot different player, a lot different person than he was last year.”Johnson said Collins has earned his trust this season, and that has turned into production on the court.The sophomore point guard leads the team in scoring at 11.9 points per game. Collins is also shooting 41 percent on 3-pointers, which is good for seventh in the Big 12.The Oklahoma-native is familiar with success. Collins was a highly-touted player for his homeschool prep team, the Oklahoma City Storm.Collins led the Storm to claim two national championships during his high school career. During his senior year, he averaged 28.3 points per game and was named the Homeschool National Player of the Year for the second straight season.The success has translated on a personal level for Collins during his sophomore year of college. He said he just hopes that it will turn into success for the team as a whole.After scoring a career-high 29 points in a loss to Texas Tech, Collins said he thinks the team is getting closer to where they want to be.“We’re getting there,” Collins said. “I feel like we’ve got a big up. We just got to keep buying into coach [Johnson], what he has to say; because everything he says works.”That kind of attitude is what Johnson wants Collins to bring every day as a leader of the team. If that can be established as the culture of TCU basketball, success will eventually follow.

IndiaAsia – Pacific News News November 26, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Editor dies from religious sect shooting injuries RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (Reporters Sans Frontières) today voiced its dismay at the death on 23 November of journalist Ram Chander Chaterpatti from the injuries he received when shot by a religious sect member a month ago in Sirsa (Haryana state).The organisation called on Haryana chief minister Om Parkash Chautala to ensure that all those involved in Chaterpatti’s killing are identified and brought to justice and that the sect’s practices are thoroughly investigated.Chaterpatti, 52, was the editor of a Sirsa-based, Hindi-language newspaper called Poora Sach (The Whole Truth). He died in a New Delhi hospital where he was being treated for his injuries. He was hit four times when gunned down outside his home in Sirsa on 24 October by an alleged member of the Dera Sacha Sauda sect.The shooting was apparently linked to articles Chaterpatti wrote on alleged sexual abuses and other illegal activities by members of the sect and its guru, Sant Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji. According to his family, Chaterpatti had been writing about the sect for some time, and had been threatened on several occasions.Aditya Arora, a sect representative, confirmed that Chaterpatti was “warned several times to stop his attacks against the sect because he was upsetting its members.” At least four persons including one of the sect’s directors were arrested in the course of the investigation carried out after the shooting.Chaterpatti is survived by three children.

As observed in earlier order, the scheme has to be a fair and transparent scheme, considering the fact that the amount of Rs 5 crore transferred by the government constitutes public money. Additional Advocate General (AAG) is also directed to address the court on the nature of the scheme.” The direction followed after Advocate Anil Kumar appearing for the Advocates Association of Bengaluru raised objections to the scheme. He said “The KSBC circular states that only male advocates are entitled for the amounts. Further, those who are enrolled before 1/01/2010 and should have not crossed the age of 40 years are eligible. They are targeting the age group of 35-40 years. No junior advocate is entitled for the relief. On the previous date of hearing the court had said the scheme must be presented to the court, they have not followed the orders. Thus the scheme is faulty.” Advocate Nataraj G appearing for the KSBC said “On earlier occasion, framed scheme who enrolled subsequent to 1/01/2010. We already paid an amount of Rs 5,000. After this grant, we are streamling those advocates who were enrolled prior to 1/01/2010. Since advocates registered after 1/01/2010, have already got financial assistance therefore this scheme is being framed. Since we are calling upon the advocates register before January 1, 2010, a large number of advocates will make applications.” He submitted that he would place the scheme on record of the court for further consideration. Advocate Chetan Munnoli appearing for the Advocates Association of High Court at Dharwad bench informed the court that “Till now Rs 40,000 has been collected by the association. Many seniors have paid salaries to their clerks during the pandemic, in that view they have not contributed to this cause. However, we will still try to collect some more amount and help the clerks.” The bench in its order said “As observed earlier more amount will have to be collected by the association. Counsel for advocates clerks association at dharwad has stated that he will submit a list of advocate clerks who are not attached to any particular lawyers and have received remuneration from advocates so that those clerks who were paid remuneration will be submitted. After receiving the list of clerks who badly need assistance the association should distribute the amount in a fair and transparent manner.” The state government also informed the court that it has disposed of the representations made by the Belgavi bar association and the Advocates Association at Dharwad. They have been directed to approach the state bar council for seeking financial assistance to its members. It has also not sanctioned a separate amount for Advocates’s clerks and has directed the bar council to set apart some amount for needy advocates clerks, out of Rs 5 crore granted for the benefit of Advocates. The bench said “State to place on record the decision taken to not grant separate amounts to advocate’s clerks and decisions taken on representations made by Bar associations, so that the court can examine whether the state has given any reasons.” The court has now posted the matter seeking financial assistance for needy advocate’s clerks for further hearing on September 7.
