Prologue
Bishop Pryce commented on the working paper prepared by the Confirmation Task Force, composed of representatives from the Children's Unit, the Youth Unit, the Doctrine and Worship Committee, the House of Bishops, and national staff.
Bishop Pryce stressed that this is a working paper and not a report. He said that the Program Committee asked the Children's Unit to study this matter, and requested the Primate to appoint a task force.
Bishop Pryce said that the working paper needs to get into the church to be read and discussed. The task force is asking for a full day at the Fall, 1989 meeting of the House to present details of the report and discuss implications. He told the bishops that the document has gone to General Synod members and is to be dealt with at the information dialogue on June 16th as part of the Doctrine and Worship dialogue.
Statistics regarding the national church and quantities of the document are available from the Reverend Paul MacLean.

Text
Mindful of the 1989 General Synod motion, this House of Bishops encourages the Program Committee to circulate the document and encourage continuing discussion of the Confirmation Task Force Report in the context of Christian initiation in parishes, dioceses and theological colleges within the Anglican Church of Canada.
This House also encourages the Program Committee:
- to set up a continuing task force, made up of representatives from the Doctrine and Worship Committee, the Children's Unit, the Youth Unit and the House of Bishops.
- to monitor and collate results from that discussion and continue to be aware of developments in this area from other parts of the Communion, as well as the ecumenical scene and
- to consult with the House of Bishops about the recommendations prior to the General Synod. CARRIED

Text
That a rubber stamp, or other appropriate identification, be obtained stating that the report is intended for study purposes only. CARRIED
Notes
The Primate noted that there has been a twenty percent decline in the number of people baptized and fifty percent in the number confirmed, and that this issue is urgent. The purpose of the report will be well served if all groups respond as conscientiously as the House of Bishops.
The Primate expressed the appreciation of the House to the members of the Task Force.
