Prologue
The Bishop Coadjutor of Toronto presented the Report of the Committee on Training Older Men for the Ministry, Section H.
Text
That the Report of the Committee on Training Older Men for Ministry Section H., be received. CARRIED.
Notes
Bishop Snell outlined the Recommendations in the Report:--
If it is agreed that there is a place in the ministry for "older men" then we should be prepared to undertake their training. A night school plan seems to be the most realistic way of tackling the problem.
It is also desirable to have a common standard for the whole of Canada. Therefore we urge that a competent committee draw up a curriculum based on two years of night school during which eight units of study will be taken. Then the successful candidates shall be required to attend full-time for an additional year, preferably of nine months duration.
Further, that a testing of a man's suitability to undertake the course be given along the lines of C.A.C.T.M. [Central Advisory Council for the Ministry]
That where a night school is not feasible, the same courses shall be taken under the direction of a parish priest acceptable to the Bishop, or under the direction of the staff of the provincial college.
That consideration be given to having one college for each Ecclesiastical Province used for the final year's training.
That special care should be taken in the post-ordination training of such men. That the Pension Committee be consulted. It might be necessary to limit the upper age so that ordination would take place prior to age 50.

[Anglican Clergy to Observe Canonical Laws Despite Discussions of Ecumenical Union]

Deviations from church discipline and practice arising out of ecumenical enthusiasm are a matter of concern to the Anglican Church of Canada.
The church has played an important role in bringing about a relaxation of tensions that for centuries have been divisive religious factors. But its bishops stress that negotiations with other churches have union and full communion as their objective and until this is attained Anglican clergy and laity should observe canonical laws and regulations.
In connection with marriages of Anglicans and non-Anglicans the House of Bishops has reaffirmed that Anglican clergy may accept invitations to participate in services in other communions provided that no breach of the matrimonial discipline of the Anglican Church of Canada is involved.
The House of Bishops recognizes that the instruction on mixed marriages issued in Rome last March by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith represents a real effort by the Roman Catholic Church to solve some of the problems involved in this difficult question. However, the bishops feel that the instruction does not really succeed in meeting the Anglican viewpoint.
Therefore, in the case of a marriage in a Roman Catholic church involving an Anglican who has given a pre-nuptial undertaking respecting the nurture of children in the Roman Catholic faith, the participation of an Anglican priest is not permitted. Such participation, by the terms of the Rome decree, is limited to a post-service exhortation and word of goodwill. If the Anglican party to the marriage has made no pre-nuptial agreement, the regulation does not apply and each case must be dealt with individually.
At the marriage of an Anglican and a member of another communion in an Anglican church, a non-Anglican priest or minister may be invited to assist, reading from the Anglican marriage service such prayers as are generally allowed by diocesan bishops.
To meet increasing pressures for inter-communion and to regularize practices that have developed in some churches, the Anglican House of Bishops has modified regulations concerning the administration of Holy Communion to unconfirmed persons. The bishops stipulate, however, that Anglican clergy are not authorized to issue any open invitation to Holy Communion.
The new ruling, to be used by diocesan bishops at their discretion, would permit Holy Communion to be administered to the following baptized persons of other communions:
Isolated communicants who have no regular opportunity of receiving the sacrament from their own ministers; staff members and pupils in hostels, boarding schools and colleges where there is a chapel in which the eucharist is celebrated; staff and inmates or patients of institutions in which there is an Anglican chaplaincy; Christian people gathered together for dialogue and prayer for the unity of Christendom; tourists and travellers attending Anglican churches; members of families, some non-Anglican, who on special occasions wish to receive the Holy Communion together.
Generally speaking, Anglican clergy do not refuse communion to any baptized persons, but in some cases they inquire into the communicant status of individuals.

Text
That the Council of General Synod adopt the "Guidelines for Anglican and Lutheran Clergy Serving Term Appointments in Each Other's Churches" and request appropriate bodies to implement them. CARRIED #16-05-02
Notes
Note: "appropriate bodies" would include the bishops, dioceses, chancellors, human resources personnel, the pension departments of both churches and theological colleges.
Guidelines for Anglican and Lutheran Priests and Pastors Serving Term Appointments in Each Other's Churches
When a term appointment is contemplated the following process shall be followed with the Terms of Appointment defined:
Eligibility
Only clergy in good standing with their own church are eligible for term appointments.
Initiative
When a term appointment of priest or pastor to a congregation of the other church is contemplated, it must have the approval of both bishops concerned. The initiative may come from an ordained person, the local ministry setting, or the bishop.
Process
1. If priest or pastor wishes to be available for a term appointment in the other church, that person should contact his/her own bishop who then consults with the counterpart bishop.
2. If the initiative is from the congregation or other ministry setting, the responsible persons contact their own bishop, who then consults with the counterpart bishop.
3. If the bishop of a synod/diocese wishes to appoint a pastor/priest of the other church, that bishop contacts the appropriate bishop of the other church.
4. A full curriculum vitae of ministry and ordination history shall be provided to the receiving bishop.
5. A police letter of record and a child abuse registry check shall be provided to the receiving bishop.
6. The receiving bishop issues a letter of appointment setting out the terms of the appointment.
7. The appointment shall be marked liturgically as soon as possible to the beginning date of the term using appropriate forms, e.g. "Installation of a Pastor" or "Celebration of a New Ministry", and adapting as necessary for the circumstances.
Terms of Appointment
Terms of appointment shall include:
1. Length of the term
2. Remuneration, including housing, travel, pension and benefits
3. Salary/stipend shall be according to the scale of the receiving synod/diocese. The salary source is responsible for provision of housing or an allowance in lieu thereof, and travel reimbursement, both according to the scale of the receiving church.
4. Pension, Long Term Disability and Continuing Education contributions will be paid into the plan(s) of the originating church. Other benefits (e.g. group health) will normally be according to the plan(s) of the receiving church but may be negotiated between the two bodies, as these plans vary from one synod/diocese to another.
5. Vacation, days off, educational leave and sabbatical leave shall be in accordance with the policy of the receiving church.
6. Provision for review after one year under the polity and practice of the receiving diocese/synod.
Accountability
1. All persons appointed under this guideline are subject to the discipline of the receiving church and shall be required to comply with all applicable regulations in effect in that church, including canons/constitutions, policies and guidelines. If matters of discipline arise the receiving bishop shall not institute proceedings until notice has been given to the bishop of the sending church and that bishop has given consent for proceedings to be instituted. The sending bishop shall either give consent or institute proceedings in the sending church. Deposition/removal from roster may only be imposed by the sending church.
2. Process for early termination will be according to the regulations in force in the receiving church, with a report made to the originating church. Consultation between the two bishops is encouraged throughout such a process.
Orientation
1. The receiving bishop shall appoint a mentor to assist the clergy person in acquiring a working knowledge of the polity and practice of the receiving church, and to be available as a resource during the course of the term.
2. Items to be included in orientation shall include at least (as appropriate):
a. Constitutions/canons of congregation, synod/diocese and national church
b. ELCIC Statement on Sacramental Practices
c. Any guidelines presently in effect in the synod/diocese and national church
d. Conduct of worship and pastoral care in that church
e. Introduction to the theological emphases of the receiving church
3. The mentor shall conduct an exit interview at the end of the term and ensure that appropriate parish records have been kept.

Toronto, Feb. 13, 1980 -- For immediate release
Glasgow and Ayreshire, Scotland and Cape Town, South Africa would seem to be unlikely birth places for Anglican missionaries to Canada's frozen northern landscape. Nevertheless, three of five budding missionaries who this month were awarded scholarships hail from those distant spots.
The awards were the Archbishop Owen Memorial Scholarships which are given to students in the last year of their theological training who have agreed to take up "missionary work either in Canada or overseas." The Chairman of the Committee which makes the annual awards, the Rt. Rev. H.V. Stiff, of Toronto, said that both academic standing and financial need are taken into account in making the annual $500 awards.
James Bell was born and received his early education in Glasgow, Scotland. His varied background is indicated by his educational affiliations, having attended Springburn College of Engineering, Glasgow Bible Training Institute and now Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto. Married, with two children, Mr. Bell will be serving in the Diocese of the Arctic, particularly in the Baffin Islands area.
Thomas McQuiston, the other Scot in the group, shares an equally varied background. Born and raised in rural Ayreshire in Scotland it is not strange that he graduated from the West of Scotland Agricultural College with the Scottish Diploma in Horticulture. Mr. McQuiston has been an elder in the Church of Scotland and organist and choir master in Presbyterian, Anglican and Lutheran Churches in Scotland, England and Canada. He now attends the College of Emmanuel and St. Chad in Saskatoon. He and his wife also have two children. They will be working in either the Diocese of Cariboo in British Columbia or the Diocese of Brandon in Manitoba.
Joan Evelyn Ellman, the only woman recipient of this year's scholarships is also studying at the College of Emmanuel and St. Chad and is the other "overseas" native. She was born in Cape Town, South Africa and moved to Canada as a teenager. She has a B.Sc. degree from the University of Toronto and is now in her final year of theological studies at Emmanuel and St. Chad.
Ms. Ellman has committed herself to work in the Diocese of the Yukon which is centred in Yellowknife [sic, i.e. Whitehorse].
James Gordon McCurry is a native of Neepawa, Manitoba and is also now in his final year at the College of Emmanuel and St. Chad. He has been supporting his wife and three children by working during vacation periods as a Greyhound Bus driver!
Previously, Mr. McCurry assisted in the work of Intermountain Christian Guest Homes, supervising St. Luke's House in Grandview, Manitoba. He intends to work in the Diocese of Brandon in northern Manitoba after ordination.
Brock William Lupton, now studying at the Vancouver School of Theology has a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of British Columbia. In addition to his obvious involvement as an organist and choirmaster in several churches, Mr. Lupton has worked as a theological student assistant in parishes in Arvida, Quebec, Cassiar, B.C. and in Vancouver.
A native of Kelowna, B.C., he is married to a registered nurse and they are looking forward eagerly to their work in the Northwest Territories [sic, i.e.Yukon Territory] in the Diocese of the Yukon.

MEMO TO: All recipients of the press release re Anglican Scholarship Awards
FROM: R.J. Berryman, Media Officer
The following is part of a letter sent to the Bishops of the Dioceses of the Yukon and the Arctic concerning a press release on the awarding of the Archbishop Owen Scholarships for 1980.
The press release named Yellowknife as the headquarters of the Diocese of the Yukon and stated that some work in that Diocese took place in the North West Territories:
"What do you say after you say, 'I'm sorry'?"
"I have NO explanation other than we goofed! I know the See City of the Diocese of the Yukon is Whitehorse. I know Yukon and North West are separate Territories."
"I would plead a mental lapse on my part in the midst of a very busy week, but even that does not explain how it got past my secretary who also knows the correct facts. Even when Archdeacon Hilchey, the General Secretary read over the release, he didn't notice my errors. I'm not trying to spread the blame, I'm just saying that it appears one of those gremlins really got us this time."
"At any rate, all I can do is apologize sincerely, and humbly admit I made two horrendous errors. I rejoice only in the fact that you caught them and brought them to my immediate attention. I have sent a quick correction out to all who received the release."
"Mea Culpa - please forgive. Very best personal regards."
