It shall be the duty of the Executive or Standing Committee of the Diocese in which the Priest or Deacon resides after enquiry to certify the fact to the Bishop of the Diocese and with such certificate to send a statement of the facts, acts or declarations which show such engagement or abandonment; which certificate and statement shall be recorded with the Registrar of the Diocese, and the said Bishop may then suspend the said Priest or Deacon for six months.
2. Notice of Suspension
