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
Section II - The Anglican Consultative Council commends to the Churches of the Anglican Communion two questions:
1. Whether the Agreed Statements on Eucharistic Doctrine, Ministry and Ordination, and Authority in the Church (I and II), together with the Elucidations, are consonant in substance with the faith of Anglicans?
2. Whether the final Report offers a sufficient basis for taking the next concrete step towards the reconciliation of our churches grounded in agreement in faith?
Text
That the National Executive Council send the two questions related to the reception of the ARCIC Final Report to diocesan and provincial synods for discussion and expression of opinion, and that time be given on the agenda of General Synod 1983 for discussion and appropriate action. CARRIED
Notes
Archbishop Scott amplified Mrs. Bays' report as he explained how the questions were formed, but felt the written material was needed before it should be discussed further.
