Mr. Lloyd explained publication procedures, to be published for approximately $8.00 - format, type-face, etc. has not been changed since formulation at Fredericton.
There was discussion as to the binding of the book - hard cover vs. soft cover - three-ring binder, and it was suggested that at some point a decision should be made as to the separate printing of Services.

Prologue
The Committee adopted the following guidelines for the liturgical expression of special concerns in the context of Sunday liturgies:
By a long-standing custom in our Church, various Sundays in the year are designated as opportunities for study and prayer related to special concerns. The Doctrine and Worship Committee affirms this practice and offers the following suggestions for its enhancement.
1. Groups wishing to promote study and prayer relating to special concerns should explore the propers provided for the Sundays they are considering for special designation. Special concerns should visibly flow out of the Church's liturgy rather than displace the appointed liturgy of the Church.
2. A recommendation to replace the appointed reading should not be made without consultation with the Doctrine and Worship Committee.
3. The variable parts of the liturgy, especially the Prayers of the People, should be developed creatively to express special concerns. The Doctrine and Worship Committee will provide assistance in the preparation of such material.
