Prologue
Bishop Valentine introduced Dr. David Skelton who is a geriatric specialist and ordained priest. He explained that Dr. Skelton and Archdeacon Ralph Baxter, out of their deep common concern for the elderly, have spearheaded the Elders in Ministry Project. Dr. Skelton thanked the Bishops for the opportunity to address the House. He provided background information on the study, noting that in geriatric medicine concern is for physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of life. He reported that, barring unforseen calamity, the world's population will double within the next thirty-five years.
Dr. Skelton explained that the purpose of the Project is to develop programs for use on the national, diocesan and local levels within the Church framework which will improve the quality of life of the elderly.
Dr. Skelton outlined the three phases of the Project as follows:
Phase I
(i) to identify the needs and resources - (data is available through university computer facilities);
(ii) assessment of how older people view their needs to discover similarities and differences;
(iii) development of facilities to enable older people to become actively involved in both secular and church activities.
Phase II
Using researched data, work out strategies to fill the identified gaps;
Phase III
Implement programs and make them available to Church, society and government. Dr. Skelton noted that Bishop Valentine is Chairman of the Board which is centred in Winnipeg, and that there is a good representation of seniors on the Board. Dr. Skelton said that Archdeacon Ralph Baxter is fulltime Project Director, while he serves as technical adviser. Dr. Skelton urged those Bishops whose dioceses have not yet appointed a diocesan representative to convey the name of their representative to Canon Baxter as soon as possible. He noted that the United Nations has designated 1982 the Year of the Elderly, and suggested that a Senior Sunday may be set in the Fall of 1981 which would provide an opportunity for national coverage.
Dr. Skelton expressed appreciation to the Bishops for the opportunity to speak, and kindly offered to contribute the notes of his address. (Appendix D)
