Archbishop Howard H. Clark, retired Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, is being honoured Friday evening at the Royal York Hotel at a testimonial dinner to mark the conclusion of his ten years as Primate.
The reception and dinner were organised by a group of Toronto laymen to fit with the current meetings of the House of Bishops and the National Executive Council of the Church. The National Executive Council concludes its meetings Friday, and the House of Bishops opens a week-end session Saturday morning. Both the National Executive Council and the House of Bishops draw membership from across Canada.
Archbishop Clark's retirement was effective August 31, 1970. Archbishop William Wright of Algoma, Senior Metropolitan of the Anglican Church of Canada is Acting Primate until the General Synod meets late in January 1971 at Niagara Falls, Ontario. At that time, a new Primate will be elected.
Archbishop Clark was elected in 1959, when he was Archbishop of Rupert's land, and two years ago became the first leader of the Anglican Church of Canada to assume permanent quarters at the National Office of the General Synod at 600 Jarvis Street, Toronto.
He was the founder and chief mover of the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund, which was organised following the Spring Hill, Nova Scotia mine disaster a decade ago. This year the Primate's Fund begins its second decade, with emphasis on development as well as relief, coinciding with the United Nations theme for the 1970s "A DECADE OF DEVELOPMENT."
Archbishop Clark's family is expected to be present together with friends from all parts of Canada.
A reception, arranged by a committee of laymen, is planned for 6:30 pm in the ballroom followed by dinner at 7:30.

Had it not been for a mother's dream and a pressing desire to enter the Anglican Ministry, the Most Rev. Howard Hewlett Clark would never have become the ninth Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada. His mother had firmly made up her mind that he would become a priest before he was old enough to talk.
She didn't have to persuade him - he claims he always had the ministry in mind. However, when he failed his first year at Trinity College in Toronto and hadn't enough money to try it again, it looked as though he would become an actuary for the Canada Life Insurance Company. But the desire for the priesthood found him back in college five years later.
Since taking office in 1959, Archbishop Clark has travelled widely throughout Canada, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Pakistan, India, Japan, Hong Kong and the Philippines. He has been one of the leaders in the rapidly developing ecumenical movement and has lent his influence and support to canonical and civil measures intended to improve human relations in twentieth century society.
Highlighting his years as Primate have been the marked advances made in plans for union of the Anglican and United Churches, the revision of the Book of Common Prayer, and the liberalization of the Church's marriage canon, which, while emphasizing the sanctity of the marriage bond, permits remarriage of divorced persons in certain circumstances. Under his leadership in 1963, the third Anglican Congress was held in Toronto and engendered a new concept of mission for world Anglicanism.
In 1959 he was appointed to the Episcopal canonry of Pisgah in the Cathedral Church of St. George the Martyr, Jerusalem, and during his years of office he has received degrees from some 17 Universities all over North America.
Howard Hewlett Clark was born on April 23, 1903, at Fort Macleod, Alberta, in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. His mother was an Englishwoman and his father a member of the Northwest Mounted Police. He was educated in Toronto, Thorold and St. Catharines, Ontario. He received in B.A. degree from the University of Toronto in 1932 and served as part-time assistant at St. John's Norway Anglican Church in Toronto while completing his studies. He was ordained by Bishop John Charles Roper, then Bishop of Ottawa, the same year, and served as Curate, Rector and Dean of Christ Church Cathedral in Ottawa for 22 years. In 1935 he married Anna Wilson, an Ottawa girl whose great-great-grandfather, Nicholas Sparks, was founder of the City and donor of the land on which the Cathedral was built. They have three daughters, Mary (Mrs. S.S. Van Straubenzee), Elizabeth (Mrs. K.R. Morley) and Esther (Mrs. William A. Harshaw), and a son, Howard.
He was elected Bishop of Edmonton in 1954, and a few months later was confined to bed for almost a year with spinal arthritis. When he returned to work months later, after "reading, thinking and staring at the ceiling," he was still in constant pain that didn't end until 1950, when the damage was complete. As a result, he walks with a slight stoop because of rigidity of his spine.
In 1961, he was elected Archbishop of Rupert's Land and Metropolitan of the same Province and moved to Winnipeg.
Two years ago he moved to Toronto, to the National Headquarters of the Church and in December of this year, resigns as Archbishop of Rupert's Land to conform to General Synod actions relieving all future Primates of all Diocesan and Provincial duties.
He sees Anglicanism with its claims to Catholicity in a reformed tradition playing a big part in the world-wide movement toward Christian unity, but he feels that certain divisions within the Anglican Church have to be worked out first.
"The first question was have to ask is, 'Can we allow theological pluralism?' There are so many different people and so many different beliefs, even within one Church. Some are strong on creed and ancient doctrine. Others are Christians-of-the-centre who believe the basic truths about Jesus Christ and shun all references to the virgin birth or the empty tomb. Then there are the radicals, who seem to strain out all content from traditional doctrine. We have to come together on all of these."
The young-looking Archbishop is a gentle and witty man, a great story-teller and a scholar. He believes that boldly imaginative missionary strategy by the Anglican communion as a whole, and flexibility of organization is necessary if it is to make its fullest impact in a world made small by science.

Ecclesiastical history will be made later this month when nearly 250 bishops of the two North American churches of the Anglican Communion meet at Augusta, Ga., to examine current religious and social problems of joint concern.
For nearly two centuries the Episcopal Church in the United States and the Anglican Church of Canada have worked in friendly association, but independently, as autonomous members of the world-wide communion now embracing 19 churches with a membership exceeding 45,000,000. The Augusta assembly, October 20-24, will mark the first formal sessions of their episcopal leaders.
Fresh from the Lambeth Conference held two months ago, the bishops, headed by Presiding Bishop John F. Hines of the American church and the Canadian Primate, Most Rev. Howard H. Clark, may be expected to make concrete proposals on matters to which the London gathering's approach was non-committal.
Coming under close scrutiny will be the nature of the Anglican ministry, overseas mission strategy, church union, inter-communion with non-Anglican churches, and relations with Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches. Equally important will be questions of poverty, race, and war and peace in which the Canadian and American churches share a joint concern.
"Churches of the Anglican Communion in different parts of the world have often found that the nationalisms of their members have a tendency to militate against mutual understanding and common action," said Archbishop Clark in an interview. "Canadians and Americans have been no exception, but we regard the Augusta meeting as a big step forward toward cementing our cordial relationship by down-to-earth discussion of common problems."
Each of the churches has a House of Bishops, but the houses have no legislative authority except when with representatives of clergy and laity they form legislative bodies, known as the General Synod in Canada and the General Convention in the United States.
"The church all over the world is carefully examining its ministry," said the Canadian Primate. "In North America, if it is to be effective, it must operate in a manner that suits our particular world."
"We share so many things in our culture and our problems are similar. Old established forms of worship are subject to change and development with the growth of new art forms. Experimental liturgies are being widely used as we try to meet youth's demands for an approach to worship in the modern idiom."
He hopes that the forthcoming meeting will help the bishops to work out concrete proposals regarding inter-communion, revision of the diaconate and increased use of the mass media to reach people out of touch with the church.
"Lambeth could not supply complete guidelines for the church in the modern world, but it did point the direction in which we should go," he said.
Formation of a North American Council involving the Canadian and United States branches of Anglicanism and the Church of the West Indies may have a place on the agenda. The scheme has been discussed informally for several years but has not yet reached the planning stage because of financial problems facing the church in the Caribbean which is closely linked with the Church of England.
The council's primary purpose would be to assess the needs and resources of the Anglican churches in the vast area to to co-ordinate their relationships and those with other churches.

Notes
"[By] Peter Whitely".
"This book is a personal impression of the 1963 Anglican Congress held in Toronto from 13 to 23 August. Although I was asked officially to write it, it is in no way an official document of the Congress". -- Preface.
The author "attended the Congress, and he has brought back his personal account of it. As a well-informed layman of the Church of England, editor of `Prism', and a member of the Church Assembly, he is well qualified to explain the issues before the Congress and to assess the addresses and debates in the light of what lay behind them. He comments with perception on the pressing problems of belief and action that face all Christians today. Mr. Whiteley also tells how the Congress was organized and he records the human aspect of the sessions and the reactions of the delegates to what they saw and heard. He introduces the reader to many of the leading personalities of the Anglican Communion. Nor does he refrain from criticism, though his criticism is never destructive, and he gives credit where (as so often) credit is due. This is a book that every Anglican ought to read, if he is to understand the choices which the Churches of the Anglican Communion must now make in order to carry out the purpose of God at this stage of their history". -- back cover.
Contents: Preface / P.W. -- Introduction -- Opening Service -- Religious Frontier -- The Political Frontier -- The Cultural Frontier -- The World Together -- Interlude -- Training and Organizing for Action -- The Vocation of the Anglican Communion -- Discussion Groups -- Closing Stages -- Appendix A: "Mutual Responsibility and Interdependence in the Body of Christ" -- Appendix B: The Congress Message.

London, England - Canadians are playing a prominent role in developing contemporary statements of the Anglican Communion, as bishops throughout the world gather here at the Lambeth Conference to re-assess the church's work and set new goals.
Eight bishops from Canada, including Most Rev. Howard H. Clark, Primate of the Canadian church, have been placed in critical positions on the Conference's committee to draft statements relating to doctrine, new theology, secularism, current church union schemes and the role of women in the church.
Archbishop Clark is Chairman of the commission dealing with renewal of the church's faith, the first of the three major commissions. This section is responsible for studying vital areas of concern to the church in a secular and technological society and the effects of theological debate about the existence of God.
Another key figure in the Conference is its Episcopal Secretary, Rt. Rev. Ralph S. Dean, Bishop of Cariboo, in British Columbia. Other bishops from Nova Scotia to Vancouver are among the Conference's leaders.
Rt. Rev. W.W. Davis, Bishop of Nova Scotia, is Chairman of a committee which has unanimously recommended ordination of women to the Anglican priesthood.
The Bishop of Montreal, Rt. Rev. R.K. Maguire, is vice-chairman of the committee dealing with relations with the Eastern Orthodox church. It will suggest to the Conference that Anglicans and Orthodox work more closely in social and moral issues and investigate means to strengthen worship.
Rt. Rev. E.S. Reed, Bishop of Ottawa, is Chairman of the committee on Christian appraisal of secular society. Part of the discussion deals with poverty, mass media, scientific discovery, nuclear and chemical warfare.
Rt. Rev. K.C. Evans of the Diocese of Ontario and Rt. Rev. S.C. Steer, Bishop of Saskatoon, are both Chairmen on committees discussing theological language and the debate about God.
Most Rev. G.P. Gower, Archbishop of New Westminster, is vice-chairman of the committee discussing current union schemes and intercommunion. He has been a leading figure in the protracted negotiations, looking to the union of the Anglican and United churches of Canada.
