The motion in the Faith, Worship, and Ministry (FWM) Coordinating Committee report to approve a liturgical text was placed before Council. During the consensus process, it was asked if there is a vehicle for evaluation and feedback from parishes. The Rev. Dr. Eileen Scully, Director of FWM, noted that an online evaluation form would be set up on anglican.ca, as has been past practice, and that bishops receive liturgical texts that are added or amended.
