Halifax, Nova Scotia - Officials of the Department of Public Welfare have expressed thanks to the Anglican Church of Canada for its cooperation in a recent campaign to increase adoptions throughout the province.
There were 46 inquiries from married couples to the provincial coordinator for adoption services following the month-long campaign, according to a statement received by the church's social service department.
It is the first example of co-operation between the Anglican Church and provincial authorities in the adoption field. Church organized officials say they hope such a campaign might also be organized in other provinces.
Anglican clergy were asked by Rt. Rev. W.W. Davis, Bishop of the Diocese of Nova Scotia, to preach on adoption, or conduct a discussion in their churches and to circulate an adoption brochure produced by several denominations.
At present, 21 of the couples that made inquiries have completed or are in the process of completing their adoption.

Prologue
Archdeacon Hobson stated that the Historical Commission recommends that the first manuscript "A History of the Anglican Church of Canada in Atlantic Canada" written by Dr. Thomas R. Millman, be published as the first portion of the proposed series, and that the National Executive Council be asked to submit a request to the Anglican Foundation for a subsidy or guarantee to enable the Anglican Book Centre to undertake publication.
The Council agreed that no decision be made until the cost is established.
Later in the meeting Mr. Lloyd estimated that the cost of publication would be approximately $5 to $6 each or $11,000.
