Prologue
Bishop Jones raised some of the problems in having to maintain links with Chaplains who are working in another Diocese for all or a large part of their ministry.
Bishop Stiff reminded the House that, some years ago, considerable work was done on the licensing of clergy. It was said, at that time, that wherever a priest is working, he should have some relationship with the Bishop of the Diocese in which he is working.
The Primate said that this is a very complex issue and raised the possibility of having Government Chaplains linked in the same way as the military chaplains by a Bishop Ordinary.
It was recognized that there is a growing number of chaplaincy jobs and agreed that a priest should be in a relationship with his diocesan bishop.
Text
That this House of Bishops reaffirms the principle that every priest should be in a relationship with a local Bishop, and requests the Personnel Resources Officer to study the matter and develop Guidelines to be referred back to the House of Bishops for study. CARRIED #3-6-86
