The Anglican Church of Canada In 1961, there were 1.3 million Anglicans on church rolls in a country of 18 million people. In 2001, there were 651,000 Anglicans on church rolls in a country of 32 million people. In 2005, there were 610,000 Anglicans on the church rolls (as reported by the Globe & Mail , October 21, 2009, p. A3). At the present time, estimates are that the ACC is losing about 13,000 members per year. Although the prediction that the last Anglican will leave the church in 2061 is far-fetched, a more likely scenario is that we will exist as a much smaller church, between 200,000 and 400,000 members.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
