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
"That this House strike a Task Force to give serious consideration to the matter of episcopal elections in the light of the recommendations presented to the House at the December, 1974, meeting, and that a report of their considerations be presented at the next meeting of the House." CARRIED

Prologue
Archbishop Nutter reported that the Primate wrote to the Archbishop of Canterbury, as requested at the November meeting of the House, and received a response to his letter from Canon S. Van Culin's response were distributed to the Bishops.
According to the formula outlined by Canon Van Culin, as developed at the March 1986 meeting of Primates, the Canadian Church is entitled to send three Suffragan Bishops. No provision is being made for the attendance of the wives of Suffragan Bishops at the Lambeth Conference.
The Metropolitans identified various methods of indicating the Suffragan Bishops who should be invited to attend from the Canadian Church. It was agreed that seniority should be the defining factor, but that no more than one Bishop should attend from the same Diocese. If any Suffragan is unable to go because of illness, or chooses not to go, the next senior Suffragan Bishop should take his place. The Metropolitans agreed that this proposal should be placed before the Bishops for their consideration.
Text
That the three Suffragan Bishops senior by Consecration be those designated to attend the Lambeth Conference in 1988, and that if any of those thus indicated are unable to attend, the next senior Suffragan Bishop shall take his place, with not more than one attending from any diocese. CARRIED

That the Primate be requested to write, on behalf of the House, expressing appreciation and best wishes to those who have retired since the November, 1991, meeting of the House. CARRIED
Notes
The Secretary reported the receipt of a letter from Bishop Snowden and Bishop Berry expressing the hope that it might be possible to devise a system of informing retired bishops of changes in the membership of the House of Bishops.
The Primate explained that messages are sent to all diocesan offices by fax as soon as information becomes available to his office. It was agreed that a statement should be included in all faxed messages requesting diocesan offices to convey the information to all bishops in the dioceses. It was agreed that an up-to-date list of diocesan fax numbers should be compiled and distributed to members of the House.

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

APPENDIX A
Courtesy Guidelines
1. Any Bishop desiring to approach a person, or in responding to an applicant for a position from another diocese, should first consult with the Bishop of that diocese.
2. Parishes should be informed that before they can approach a person in another diocese, consultation must take place with their own Bishop who, in turn, would request permission of the Bishop of that Diocese.
3. Clergy who desire to leave their present diocese and who want to make inquiries before submitting their resignation or notice, should first inform their own Bishop and then (with his consent/permission) proceed by approaching the office of Personnel Resources and/or bishops of other dioceses, not any of their parishes.
4. The Department of Personnel Resources should provide adequate notice to a Bishop whenever any of his clergy are informed of a vacancy. A general policy of this Department is not to approach a person who has been an incumbent of his present parish for less than five years or an assistant for less than two.

He said that there are ten Cree priests and three postulants and thirty Cree communities. He has spoken to the Diocesan Indian Council and with the Chancellor of the Diocese and it is felt that this is a very good thing for the Diocese of Saskatchewan.
