Prologue
It was noted that the 1988 Canadian Churchman calendar provides only the Lectionary for the Book of Alternative Services throughout the monthly entries, with the Book of Common Prayer schedule listed at the back of the calendar. It was recognized that both the Book of Alternative Services and the Book of Common Prayer are official books of the Anglican Church of Canada.
Bishop Berry explained that the hearings held at the General Synod of 1986 influenced the decision to publish the 1988 calendar as it is, but the matter would be studied in the light of the reaction to the 1988 calendar, prior to the publication of the 1989 calendar.
Text
That this House, while fully supporting the Doctrine and Worship Committee's desire for the new lectionary and calendar designations (as approved by General Synod) to be included on the Canadian Churchman calendar, deeply regrets the decision not to include the Book of Common Prayer designations as well.
