Prologue
Bishop Short reported on behalf of the Task Force which recommended the following as principles for further discussion:
(1) electoral procedures should not be affected by economic considerations
(2) all dioceses should have the same right to elect their bishops
(3) the Province should have a significant role in making nominations in all episcopal elections
(4) the Province should participate in each episcopal election
(5) a Provincial Committee (?) should be in charge of all nominations, which may be submitted from the Church-at-large.
It was pointed out that one of the least defined areas in the Episcopacy is that of Suffragan, and agreed that this requires further study, along with a consideration of more extensive opportunities for the translation of Bishops.
Text

London, Ontario - The Very Reverend K.B. Keefe, Dean of Huron, has indicated that the Installation Service for the Right Reverend Carman J. Queen as seventh Bishop of Huron will reflect the pastoral nature of the Bishop's relationship with his diocese. Over the past few weeks a new service has been evolved by the Cathedral Chapter which serves as the Diocesan Task Force on Worship.
The Installation of Bishop Queen will take place on Monday, November 30, at St. Paul Cathedral, at 7:00pm.
The installation of a bishop is the formal ceremony in which a diocese recognizes and accepts its new Diocesan Bishop, hears from him his promises of faithfulness and gives to him its loyalty and support.
The chief ministrant is the Dean supported by his Chapter of Canons. The Dean is the representative of the people of the Diocese and he receives and installs the Bishop into the "Cathedra" (Bishop's throne) symbolizing the episcopal seat of authority.
The Bishop is presented with the Pastoral Staff of the Diocese as a symbol of his office as Chief Shepherd. On this occasion, and for the first time, a prominent lay member of the Diocese (Dr. Douglas Broadwell of Windsor) will make the presentation.
During the service the Bishop will receive and acknowledge fraternal greetings from other Christian bodies. It is expected that the Roman Catholic Bishop of London, The Most Reverend G. Emmett Carter, will convey greetings on behalf of the Roman Catholic Church.
The Reverend Canon D.T. Jones, Canon Precentor of the Diocese, commented that this is a change from the old idea of an enthronement which was a monarchical concept of a Bishop and this service stresses that the Bishop is more of a servant and "Father in God" than a "Prince of the Church."
