That, whereas the Executive Council and Board of Management of M.S.C.C. in Joint Session at Ottawa in 1961 has taken the following action:
"Without jeopardizing the present overseas commitments of The Anglican Church of Canada in the following Provinces and Dioceses of the Anglican Communion:
The Church of India, Pakistan, Burma and Ceylon
The Holy Catholic Church in Japan
The Archbishopric in Jerusalem
The Church of Uganda Ruanda [sic i.e. Rwanda] Urundi
The Church of the Province of the West Indies
The Diocese of Hong Kong
The Diocese of Accra
The Diocese of Malaya and Singapore, and
The Diocese of Madras in the Church of South India.
It is recommended that the Executive Committee of the Department of Missions of The Anglican Church of Canada be empowered to receive and consider, within the limitations of its Annual Budget appropriations, such appeals for personnel and funds for work in the Anglican Communion as are directed to the Department of Missions of The Anglican Church of Canada by the Advisory Council on Missionary Strategy of the Anglican Communion."
It is therefore recommended that as funds become available in the next triennium, the Department of Missions give priority in its overseas commitments to accepting increased appeals from the Church of India, Pakistan, Burma and Ceylon; The Church of Uganda Ruanda Urandi, and the Church of the Province of the West Indies for the following purposes:
(i) To provide assistance in the training and support of national clergy and lay workers.
(ii) To recruit and train overseas personnel in response to requests from overseas Diocesan Bishops.
(iii) To provide financial assistance for capital needs in the areas of church extension and theological education. CARRIED in both Houses.
