Prologue
Bishop Jones raised some of the problems in having to maintain links with Chaplains who are working in another Diocese for all or a large part of their ministry.
Bishop Stiff reminded the House that, some years ago, considerable work was done on the licensing of clergy. It was said, at that time, that wherever a priest is working, he should have some relationship with the Bishop of the Diocese in which he is working.
The Primate said that this is a very complex issue and raised the possibility of having Government Chaplains linked in the same way as the military chaplains by a Bishop Ordinary.
It was recognized that there is a growing number of chaplaincy jobs and agreed that a priest should be in a relationship with his diocesan bishop.
Text
That this House of Bishops reaffirms the principle that every priest should be in a relationship with a local Bishop, and requests the Personnel Resources Officer to study the matter and develop Guidelines to be referred back to the House of Bishops for study. CARRIED #3-6-86

Prologue
The Report of the Clergy Marriages Task Force was received and discussed. The policy of the Diocese of Calgary with respect to dysfunction and marital breakdown was found to be helpful in setting out a model of diocesan procedures and guidelines for the caring of clergy families. Some elements of it might be in conflict with human rights codes.
The bishops were informed that a Personnel Review Task Force has been established to study what services the national office is providing the dioceses since the retirement of the Reverend Richard Johns. A questionnaire is to go to all bishops as well as other networks of the church, and a recommendation will be made to NEC at some time in the future.
Text
That this House asks the Primate to set up a Task Force to consider ways of enabling the implementation of the recommendations of the Clergy Marriage Report in the various dioceses across the country and report to a future meeting of the House. CARRIED
