Prologue
The Reverend Canon Ansley Tucker and the Reverend Paul Robinson members of the General Synod Ministry Committee brought two resolutions (from the Committee) to the House of Bishops about the Advisory Committee on Postulants for Ordination (ACPO). Their purpose was to receive the House of Bishops' input about the resolutions (#3-2-84 re. ACPO contemplated for Canadian Forces personnel and #4-2-84 re. Categories for use by ACPO assessors in relation to prospective postulants) to be taken back to the Ministry Committee, before bringing the resolution to the National Executive Committee for approval. (See appendix ii for resolutions).
Following a discussion in plenary, the consensus of the House of Bishops was that it would ask that the ACPO process continue.

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.

That this House move to In Camera Session. CARRIED #7-6-86
Note: While discussion of the Resolution was In Camera, it was agreed that the Resolution, having been approved, should be included in the regular Minutes of the House.
Text
That this House of Bishops:
1. Notes with gratitude the many signs of God's blessing on the ministry of women priests which affirm our belief that our Church was led by the Spirit of God in its decision to proceed with the ordination of women.
2. Affirms its recognition that there is no theological or canonical impediment to the consecration of women as Bishops within our Church, but counsels our Church to move with special sensitivity in this matter especially until Lambeth 1988.
3. In recognizing that the episcopate is a sign of unity, notes the importance of Lambeth discussions on the consecration of women as bishops within our Communion both so that the unity of our Communion may be maintained and so that fullness of God's gifts in men and women may be received within the episcopate to the creation of a deeper unity and a more effective witness in the carrying out of our mission.
4. Urges the need for the development of a clear articulation of the theological rationale for our understanding of episcopacy as a contribution to our dialogue with other Churches.
The Motion was put and CARRIED. #8-6-86
