"You hold in your hands a resource of materials designed to help you and your diocese develop a ministry with older adults. It is one of the ways we hope to equip and support your ministry. It is in response to requests for such material from clergy and laity who attended a national consultation on aging in May 1987. It is meant to be a model which you can adapt for your diocese by including such local resources and information which is useful to your parishes. We hope that each parish will receive a copy of your resources manual". -- "Why a Resources Manual", p. 1.

Prologue
Archbishop Curtis reported that he along with the Roman Catholic and Lutheran bishops in his diocese recently met with representatives form the Marie Lebrec Centre, in Edmonton. The centre is a place for people they refer to as "the voiceless" (e.g. elderly people with diseases such as Alzheimer's etc.). Archbishop Curtis and his colleagues were asked if they would declare Thursday, May 20, 1999 a "Day of Compassion". A group from the centre are designing an ecumenical liturgy to be used on that day for those interested. Archbishop Curtis expressed his feeling that since the United Nations had declared 1999 to be the Year of the Older Person it was fitting to assign a day to "the voiceless" and encouraged his colleagues to participate.
Discussion followed. Bishop Stavert inquired about the process for making the "Day of Compassion" official at the national church level. The House heard that the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) had agreed at their last meeting to participate. Bishop Baycroft suggested passing on information to the members of the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC) and also to the leaders of other faiths saying "We don't have a monopoly on older people."
Text
That as part of the 1999 International Year of the Older Person, Canadian Anglicans be encouraged to observe Thursday, May 20 as a Day of Compassion for all voiceless seniors and that the dioceses give support to this observance by raising awareness of the rights of those suffering from Alzheimer's and related diseases to be cared for and loved in accordance with their inherent dignity and that this resolution be forwarded to the Council of General Synod.

Prologue
Bishop Valentine introduced Dr. David Skelton who is a geriatric specialist and ordained priest. He explained that Dr. Skelton and Archdeacon Ralph Baxter, out of their deep common concern for the elderly, have spearheaded the Elders in Ministry Project. Dr. Skelton thanked the Bishops for the opportunity to address the House. He provided background information on the study, noting that in geriatric medicine concern is for physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of life. He reported that, barring unforseen calamity, the world's population will double within the next thirty-five years.
Dr. Skelton explained that the purpose of the Project is to develop programs for use on the national, diocesan and local levels within the Church framework which will improve the quality of life of the elderly.
Dr. Skelton outlined the three phases of the Project as follows:
Phase I
(i) to identify the needs and resources - (data is available through university computer facilities);
(ii) assessment of how older people view their needs to discover similarities and differences;
(iii) development of facilities to enable older people to become actively involved in both secular and church activities.
Phase II
Using researched data, work out strategies to fill the identified gaps;
Phase III
Implement programs and make them available to Church, society and government. Dr. Skelton noted that Bishop Valentine is Chairman of the Board which is centred in Winnipeg, and that there is a good representation of seniors on the Board. Dr. Skelton said that Archdeacon Ralph Baxter is fulltime Project Director, while he serves as technical adviser. Dr. Skelton urged those Bishops whose dioceses have not yet appointed a diocesan representative to convey the name of their representative to Canon Baxter as soon as possible. He noted that the United Nations has designated 1982 the Year of the Elderly, and suggested that a Senior Sunday may be set in the Fall of 1981 which would provide an opportunity for national coverage.
Dr. Skelton expressed appreciation to the Bishops for the opportunity to speak, and kindly offered to contribute the notes of his address. (Appendix D)

Notes
"The latter years may be a time of loneliness, withdrawal and fears or alternatively a serene flowering of much that has been growing throughout a long life. A skilled and loving ministry to the aging can be an important factor in dispelling the former and supporting the latter and is increasing a challenge and incentive to clergy and people. In meeting this challenge a parish can be greatly enriched through the faith, wisdom and experience of its older members." -- Intro.

Notes
"Sr. Constance Murphy, the oldest nun at the Sisters of St. John the Divine (SSJD) convent in Toronto, died peacefully on Aug. 2, 2013, after a long life devoted to giving and service to others, young and old. She was 109. Born in Baltimore, Md., in 1904, Sr. Constance earned an education degree in 1928. She entered the SSJD in 1933 and became a sister in 1936, then went on to become head mistress of the Qu'Appelle Diocesan School in Regina. Later, Sr. Constance's ministry focused on the elderly. In 1973, at the age of 73, she completed a master's degree in adult education with a certificate in gerontology. She advocated for the aged and was an outspoken critic of ageism. Even at age 99, she was still busy ministering to the residents of two Toronto seniors' care centres. 'She was a jewel', said the Rev. Canon Derwyn Shea, rector of St. Hilda's Towers".
