The Minutes of the meeting of the House held in Montebello, P.Q. on August 28th to 30th 1959, as printed and circulated, were adopted.
(iii) Report on Deceased Members.
The Bishop of Nova Scotia reported, with deep regret, the passing on January 25th, 1960, of the Right Reverend William Charles White, retired Bishop of Honan, China, and the first Bishop of that Diocese. Consecrated in November 30th, 1909 in St. James' Cathedral, Toronto, Bishop White gave his life to the work of the Church overseas. Due to his zeal and perseverance, the way was opened for the consecration of a Chinese priest to succeed him and thereby an indigenous episcopate for the Chung Hwa Sheng Kung Hui was established.

Prologue
Discussion was adjourned at 12:00 noon for lunch and resumed on Friday morning when Bishop Hunt presented the recommendation of the report in the amended form as proposed by the Committee which then read as follows:
ADMINISTRATION OF HOLY COMMUNION TO UNCONFIRMED PERSONS
The final rubric of the Order of Confirmation (B.C.P. p. 561) reads: "And there shall none be admitted to the Holy Communion, until such time as he be confirmed or be ready and desirous to be confirmed." This ruling provides the only procedure for the admission of baptized members of the Church to communicant status in the Church with the duties and privileges of such status. It is also the normal rule for those who desire to receive communion. The Priest is not authorized to issue any open invitation to Holy Communion.
The House of Bishops considers that in certain situations and occasions the Diocesan Bishop, as the chief liturgical officer of the Church in his own Diocese, may allow exceptions to the general rule and give permission, general or particular as he sees fit, to administer Holy Communion to a person of another communion who has been duly baptized with water, in the Name of the Holy Trinity, and holds Communicant status in his own Church, and is ready to join with the Church in the Services of Holy Communion as set forth in the Book of Common Prayer. (See requirements for communion in the Invitation, p. 76 and also the Catechism, p. 552).
The persons contemplated as coming under the above provision are:
1) Isolated communicants of other communions who have no regular opportunity of receiving the Sacrament from their own ministers. This includes members of the armed forces stationed in places where communion in their own churches is not available.
2) Members of the staff and pupils in hostels, boarding schools and colleges where there is a chapel in which the Eucharist is celebrated.
3) Staff and inmates or patients of institutions in which there is an Anglican chaplaincy.
4) Christian people gathered together for dialogue and prayer for the Unity of Christendom.
5) Tourists and travellers worshipping with us.
6) Members of families, some of who are not of the Anglican Communion, who on a particular occasion or a special occasion of family significance, or in times of trouble, wish to receive the Holy Communion together.
In cases wherein it is impossible to secure the judgment of the Bishop beforehand respecting the communicant status of an individual, the Priest should remember that he has no canonical authority to refuse Communion to any baptized person, not episcopally confirmed, kneeling before the Lord's Table unless he be excommunicate by name or, in the canonical sense of the term, a cause of scandal to the faithful. If he deem it necessary the minister should later seek out that person and instruct him in the discipline of the Church as it relates to admission to Holy Communion and is set forth in the Book of Common Prayer on pages 561 and 66.

Prologue
The Bishop of Ontario presented the revision of "Guidelines" which had been presented to the House at Augusta, 1968, but which had not been dealt with at that time. This revision of the Guidelines was printed as Appendix D to the Minutes of the 1968 Augusta meeting.
The Archbishop of Algoma also presented a report on behalf of a Committee appointed by the Primate to bring Lambeth Resolutions 40 and 41 before the House. This report was brought in while the House considered "Guidelines on Bishops" because its content was pertinent.
The report was as follows:
Resolution 40
In concurring with Resolution 40 (Lambeth Conference, 1968) the Committee appointed by the Primate, consisting of the Bishop of Moosonee, the Bishop of James' Bay and the Archbishop of Algoma, recommend that the Canadian House of Bishops adopt Resolution 40 (Lambeth Conference, 1968) and that the same be incorporated in the Minutes of this meeting.
For the implementation of this motion, the Committee would refer to Appendix D, Section VIII, Cl. (2) on page 31, 1968 Minutes -- (Guidelines for the use of Bishops) and further that Cl. (5) Section (e) be changed to make obligatory the appointment of an Assistant Bishop as ex officio member of the Executive.
Resolution 40: "The Conference affirms its opinion that all co-adjutor, suffragan, and full-time assistant bishops should exercise every kind of episcopal function and have their place as Bishops in the councils of the Church."
Resolution 41
The Committee recommend to the House of Bishops, the adoption of Resolution 41.
Resolution 41: "The Conference recommends that the bishops as leaders and representatives of a servant Church, should radically examine the honours paid to them in the course of divine worship, in titles and customary address, and in style of living, while having the necessary facilities for the efficient carry on of their work."
In its implementation, the Committee would suggest the dropping of diocesan signatures and meaningless titles, such as "My Lord".
