Prologue
The Report of the Clergy Marriages Task Force was received and discussed. The policy of the Diocese of Calgary with respect to dysfunction and marital breakdown was found to be helpful in setting out a model of diocesan procedures and guidelines for the caring of clergy families. Some elements of it might be in conflict with human rights codes.
The bishops were informed that a Personnel Review Task Force has been established to study what services the national office is providing the dioceses since the retirement of the Reverend Richard Johns. A questionnaire is to go to all bishops as well as other networks of the church, and a recommendation will be made to NEC at some time in the future.
Text
That this House asks the Primate to set up a Task Force to consider ways of enabling the implementation of the recommendations of the Clergy Marriage Report in the various dioceses across the country and report to a future meeting of the House. CARRIED

Prologue
At the meeting the spring of 1999 held in Quebec city the bishops' spouses developed a motion, (during one of their own sessions,) which they sent to the House of Bishops for discussion at a future meeting. Copies of that motion were distributed to the members of the House. It was agreed that the motion from the bishops' spouses could not be put to a vote at the meeting because it was not from a member of the House itself. Also there was no mover or seconder for the motion. It read:
"Be it resolved that
a) There be a fund (if there is no such fund in the spouse's diocese) established to assist clergy spouses to obtain counseling for personal and family matters.
(Note: this fund would be similar to an Employee Assistance Program where anonymity is an important factor. As spouses have set up partnerships at the last meeting, could one spouse inquire and assist another spouse in obtaining this support to protect his or her privacy.)
b) There be funds made available for additional meetings of spouses. (Option A: that spouses be invited to attend at least one House of Bishops meeting a year.
Option B: that all interested spouses be invited to attend a regional meeting of spouses at a central location once a year.)"
Bishop Ferris requested that staff at the national office investigate what the costs incurred would be to include spouses who are not currently included on an employee assistance plan.

Notes
The author reflects on his family upbringing and especially about how his father, Bruce Chambers, became "a great rector's wife" when his mother, the Rev. Prue Chambers, was ordained and became an Anglican priest when the author graduated from high school. Chambers was proud of both his parents but especially his father, a TD bank executive, who now moved to support his wife's vocation. "Instead of her following him, he now followed her to Aurora, Ont., and then down to Scarborough. He sang in the choir, hosted the chancel guild and invited the church servers to barbecues, took home communion to shut-ins and performed so many of those welcoming ministries that a 'rector's wife' was expected to perform". "St. Francis of Assisi said, 'Preach the Gospel at all times, and when necessary, use words'. My father often preached a gospel about parenting to me through those years. It was a gospel preached by example, not words. And that gospel is one that has guided my parenting. I hope my own boys are picking up that same gospel for when they are adults themselves".
Author is "communications co-ordinator for the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund".
