Prologue
Act 65
AGREED to receive with gratitude a memorial from the House of Bishops about the positive experience in Canada with women in priesthood, and to urge the bishops to carry to the Lambeth Conference conviction that the priesthood of women has indeed been blessed and has enriched our common life, and to ask the Lambeth Conference to search for a way of upholding the unity of the church while allowing provinces to move, as appropriate for them, to the election and ordination of women to the episcopate in response to the call of God and the Church.
