The General Secretary reported that an invitation has been received from the Diocese of Western Newfoundland to hold the meeting of the House of Bishops prior to General Synod in Corner Brook. The bishops were pleased to accept the invitation.
Concern was expressed regarding the provision of funds to enable the wives of the bishops to be present at the meeting.
That a small task force be appointed to consider the various options for paying the expenses of the bishops' wives who attend the House of Bishops' meeting in June, 1989, and that the task force bring its suggestions before this House prior to the end of the meeting. CARRIED
Bishop Lemmon was pleased to extend an invitation for the bishops to hold their Fall meeting in 1995 in Fredericton, noting that in 1995 the Diocese of Fredericton is to celebrate its 150th anniversary. He suggested that the Fall meeting might be held in October.
That we accept, in principle, the invitation and ask for further discussion between the Diocese and the Bishops. CARRIED
