"Be it resolved that this General Synod express its gratitude to:
- Archbishop Harold Nutter and the Diocese of Fredericton for all the work they have done on our behalf, and particularly for the dinners they extended to us;
- Dean Rhodes Cooper and the local Arrangements Committee for the welcome we have received in Fredericton and New Brunswick, and also to the Dean and people of the Cathedral for the opportunity to worship in that historic place;

- those people in Fredericton and elsewhere who welcomed us into their homes during Synod;
- hundreds of lobsters who at King's Landing made the supreme sacrifice for us;
- the staff of the General Synod for all the work before Synod, and especially to those members of the staff who have worked so hard behind the scenes during the Synod;
- Joy MacLaren and the Anglicans in Mission Diocesan Directors for their work through the whole of Anglicans in Mission and presence during the Synod, both of which added substantially to our ability truly to Rejoice;
- the persons in dioceses and parishes who designed and created the Anglicans in Mission banners and the triangles which have brightened our horizon;
-those who responded to the invitation to set up displays in the Aitken Centre;
- those who conducted the orientation sessions for Synod members;
- the Sessional Committees, especially the Agenda, Nominations and Resolutions Committees for their work on our behalf and for much grace under much pressure;
- the Worship Committee, both for their work and for their sensitivity to the variety of worship within the Church;
- the Anglican Fellowship of Prayer for unremitting prayer among us and for us;
- Professor Douglas Richardson, the Canadian Church Historical Society, and the Diocese of Fredericton Archives Committee for one of the most creative reports to the Synod;
- those who arranged, and those who made themselves available for, noon and evening events around the Synod;
- those who organized the spouses' program;
- Christopher Earl who staffed the public address system;
- Paul Gibson and his electronic device for the "Daily Review";
- the Assessors for their rulings quickly given and thoroughly thought out;
- Bishop John Sperry and Chitra Fernando for their daily call to us to deepen our understanding of the theme "Rejoice";
- our ecumenical and overseas partners for the gifts they give us to see ourselves as others see us, or in the words of a less[er] Celtic saint, for their ministry to us in speaking the truth in Love;
- the press for their efforts in the interpretation of our work to the outside world;
-Andrew Atagotaluk [sic i.e. Atagotaaluk], Eskimo language translator, for dealing with a difficult agenda with integrity and ingenuity;
- tous ceux parmi nous qui ont osé s'exprimer en l'autre langue officielle de cette province et de notre pays;
- the General Secretary and his staff for their steady guidance of our process;
- the Prolocutor and Deputy Prolocutor for gracious and competent chairmanship in the stead of the person last, but first in our thanks, namely
- the President of this Synod whose stature in our midst and in the worldwide church grows each year, for whom our affection and admiration grows each year, and whom we remember daily in our prayers and thanksgivings as 'Edward our Primate'."
