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 R. Baxter, in presenting the interim report, noted that one year has passed since Dr. David Skelton made his presentation to the House of Bishops. He reported that Phase I of the work is now completed, and the Paper presented represents a summary of the principle recommendations.
Archdeacon Baxter invited Dr. C. Schwenger to address the House. Dr. Schwenger laid particular emphasis upon health care services for the elderly.
Archdeacon Baxter indicated the intention to prepare a program for use at diocesan and parish levels, and expressed the hope that additional attention will be given in theological colleges to the whole area of care of the elderly. He reported that the Anglican Book Centre has agreed to publish a popular edition of the Report.
Archdeacon Baxter expressed appreciation to the Dioceses which have appointed diocesan representatives, and also to the dioceses which have provided financial support to the Project. He said that diocesan representatives will be called upon to be more involved now that the program phase of the Project is being entered into. He said that additional diocesan representation would be welcome and urged those dioceses which have not appointed a representative to do so.
Dr. Schwenger, in referring to the United Nations "World Assembly on Aging" which is to be held in Vienna in July, 1982, noted that the elderly population in the Third World countries is increasing, while traditional methods for care of the elderly are disappearing, creating desperate needs on the part of the elderly.
Archdeacon Baxter thanked the House for the opportunity to present the Report of the Elders and Ministry Project, and said that a full report will be sent to all diocesan representatives.
