Prologue
Archbishop Curtis reported that he along with the Roman Catholic and Lutheran bishops in his diocese recently met with representatives form the Marie Lebrec Centre, in Edmonton. The centre is a place for people they refer to as "the voiceless" (e.g. elderly people with diseases such as Alzheimer's etc.). Archbishop Curtis and his colleagues were asked if they would declare Thursday, May 20, 1999 a "Day of Compassion". A group from the centre are designing an ecumenical liturgy to be used on that day for those interested. Archbishop Curtis expressed his feeling that since the United Nations had declared 1999 to be the Year of the Older Person it was fitting to assign a day to "the voiceless" and encouraged his colleagues to participate.
Discussion followed. Bishop Stavert inquired about the process for making the "Day of Compassion" official at the national church level. The House heard that the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) had agreed at their last meeting to participate. Bishop Baycroft suggested passing on information to the members of the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) and also to the leaders of other faiths saying "We don't have a monopoly on older people."
Text
That as part of the 1999 International Year of the Older Person, Canadian Anglicans be encouraged to observe Thursday, May 20 as a Day of Compassion for all voiceless seniors and that the dioceses give support to this observance by raising awareness of the rights of those suffering from Alzheimer's and related diseases to be cared for and loved in accordance with their inherent dignity and that this resolution be forwarded to the Council of General Synod.

Notes
Archbishop Clarke requested that copies of the original version of Archbishop Hutchison's and Archbishop Finlay's motion, as well as the version which the House had carried be appended to the minutes ([Appendix] i). He also asked that the Agenda Committee give some consideration to a different model for the House of Bishops' meetings when there was an issue of particular importance to be dealt with. He commented that often when discussing an important matter, the bishops were rushed at meetings because the item was either not given adequate time on the agenda or was scheduled too late during the meeting. Bishop Morgan responded saying that the Agenda Committee would be happy to consider Archbishop Clarke's recommendation.
Bishop Wallace requested that the full motion (moved by Archbishop Hutchison and seconded by Archbishop Finlay) be faxed to the members of the House of Bishops.

Archbishop Clarke requested that both versions of a motion put before the House of Bishops by Archbishop Hutchison and Archbishop Finlay be appended to the minutes.

Prologue
Bishop Hannen reported that the Diocese of Caledonia is facing a financial crisis. This situation is due partly to uplanned major renovations of the cathedral which have proven to be costly. He said that it has put the diocese in some serious financial risk.
Bishop Hannen said that the diocese has met to discuss how to deal with its debt. One of the proposed solutions currently under consideration is to hold a one day national fundraising campaign for the diocese. He asked whether his colleagues would consider giving permission for the parishes in their dioceses to participate in a campaign for the Diocese of Caledonia for one Sunday only. He was requested to write to the bishops so that they could take something to their national executive councils for approval. They also asked for some promotional material for their dioceses.
Moved by: Bishop Ingham
Seconded by: Bishop Baycroft
"That this House endorse in principle the request of the Diocese of Caledonia for a one time collection and asks the Diocese to write to the Bishops with adequate supporting materials and a suggested date."
The motion was amended.
