"When the preparatory volume entitled `The Family in Canada' was prepared by Dr. Frederick Elkin for the Canadian Conference on the Family in 1964, it became clear that there was a great dearth of information on many aspects of Canadian family life. Of particular concern to some of us who are interested in family life education and preparation for marriage was the great gap in scientific data about Canadian premarital sexual behaviour patterns and the relationship thereto of Church teaching and Christian education. We wanted to know whether or not sociological studies of premarital sexual patterns elsewhere were valid for the Canadian scene. We wanted to know the facts of the Canadian situation and some indication of the role of Christian education and experience in shaping that situation. In pursuing these objectives we were fortunate in obtaining the help of the Reverend W.E. Mann, M.A., Ph.D., an Anglican priest who is currently Professor and Head of Sociology Programs at Atkinson College, York University". -- Intro.

"Early in 1964 the Anglican Chaplaincy services on the University of Toronto campus organized a day long Symposium designed to explore and discuss the relationship between the Institutional Church and our modern rapidly changing society. The topic was presented from the point of view of theology, sociology and social welfare. A panel of three persons well qualified to deal with each of these disciplines laid an excellent ground work for discussion by small groups which reported to the Plenary Session. An `off the cuff' summary at the end of the day made very clear that `the Church' is not some remote abstraction but is `you and I' and our Christian witness. The panel was chaired by Dr. Robertson Davies ... Master of Massey College. The Department of Christian Social Service is grateful to the Chaplains of the Canterbury Club and of Trinity College for providing us with a tape recording of the addresses and discussions and to the three panel members, Dr. W. Norman Pittenger, the Reverend Stewart Crysdale and Professor John Spencer who generously edited and arranged their material so that it could be presented in this Bulletin". -- Intro.

"It is obvious within our Canadian economy that with a steadily growing core of unemployed in this country every parish is likely to have a number of people in greater or less degrees of debt. The diligent parish priest will undoubtedly be involved with problems of many of his parishioners and may find help in the material in this Bulletin. .... The Council for Social Service is greatly indebted to the Reverend C.R. Elliott, rector of Christ Church, Lantz, Nova Scotia, for the co-ordinating and assembling of findings of a special committee of the Council for Social Service which has been at work during the past year on this topic." -- Intro.

"The latter years may be a time of loneliness, withdrawal and fears or alternatively a serene flowering of much that has been growing throughout a long life. A skilled and loving ministry to the aging can be an important factor in dispelling the former and supporting the latter and is increasing a challenge and incentive to clergy and people. In meeting this challenge a parish can be greatly enriched through the faith, wisdom and experience of its older members." -- Intro.
