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).

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.

Bishop Hannen
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.

Moved by: Bishop Ingham
Seconded by: Bishop Hutchison
While the House of Bishops, in reissuing and updating the 1979 Guidelines, states its commitment to the principles contained therein, nevertheless the House understands that individual bishops, acting with their diocesan synods, may wish to set these guidelines aside in specific instances and for pastoral reasons, and members of the House agree not to challenge the right of any bishop and/or diocese to do so.

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.

Prologue
Archbishop Curtis reported on the Encyclical Letter of Pope John Paul II `Ut Unum Sint' (1995) which invites ecumenical partners to make observations and comments on the Papal Primacy. He said members of ARCIC II have accepted that invitation. Archbishop Curtis requested that the House find a way in the next year or two to respond (to the invitation) also.
A member proposed that one of the provincial houses of bishops might do some preliminary work on the matter before it is brought to the national House for consideration. Archbishop Peers said that the matter would need to be sent to the Agenda Committee to give some thought as to how the House might proceed to respond.
