To the Queen's Most Excellent Majesty:
This General Synod of The Anglican Church of Canada, assembled in its twentieth triennial session meeting in Montreal under the Presidency of His Grace, the Archbishop of Quebec, desires to renew to Your Majesty its deep and abiding loyalty to the Throne and its devotion to Your Majesty's person.
Coming as we do from all parts of this Dominion, we know the happiness which the visit of Your Majesty and your husband His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh brought to the people of Canada. Only two months ago Your Majesty, with the President of the United States, opened the St. Lawrence Seaway, an event of outstanding importance to our country and its economic development. On that historic occasion, millions of our people were able to see and hear Your Majesty through the modern miracle of radio and television, and afterwards, in your journeying throughout this this vast country, people in cities, towns and hamlets in East and West and in the far North, were able to see Your Majesty in person as their Queen, and to realize afresh that we are part of a world-wide Commonwealth of nations living in freedom and peace.
Upon the clergy of this Church is laid the duty of prayer for Your Majesty and for the Commonwealth and Empire. To pray for Your Majesty and for the continued unity and prosperity of the Commonwealth is a task well within the compass of our loyalty. In it we lead a loyal and devoted laity many of whom proved that loyalty by service in Your Majesty's Forces, as did many of the clergy.
That Your Majesty will long reign over us as our Queen is the fervent prayer of all your Canadian people and in presenting our humble duty to Your Majesty this General Synod joins with all the people of Canada in gratitude to Almighty God for the leadership of Your Majesty and the members of the Royal Family and for the maintenance of those high ideals of life which are the fruit of the Christian faith.
[CARRIED in both houses.]

Greetings
A telegram was then read from the Prime Minister of Canada as follows:
I wish to extend my warmest greetings and good wishes to the House of Bishops, the Lower House, and General Synod, as the twentieth session opens. The momentous decisions in the choice of Primate and the revision of the Book of Common Prayer, concerning as they do the two million Anglicans in this country, carry much significance far beyond your own communion.
All Canadians wish you well. (signed) John G. Diefenbaker.

Prologue
(a) The General Secretary presented a letter from Mr. Philip Morr, Assistant Secretary to the Governor-General, referring to the address given, to Her Majesty the Queen at General Synod. He expressed "The Queen's sincere thanks for their kind and loyal message which Her Majesty much appreciates."
(b) In a letter, acknowledging the message of greeting sent by General Synod to the International Union of Family Organizations, Mr. L. Guibourge expressed deep appreciation and said, "I am sure that the proceedings of this Conference will bring an important contribution to the efforts made by governments and various family and social organizations for the improvement and strength of family life. The focal point of the Conference, problems of new families, corresponds to a basic need of humanity at a time when the demographic evolution is giving rise to a considerable increase of the number of young people of marriageable age."
(c) The Rev. L.K. Shook, Chairman of the Congress on the Theology of the Renewal of the Church, in acknowledging the message of greeting sent by General Synod, stated, "The coincidence of the Synod and Congress during this fourth week of August has been a matter of concern to me as chairman of the Congress in that it deprived the Congress of the presence of Synod members who would otherwise have been with us. However, the participation of Anglican theologians and scholars has been real and effective. Through them the Anglican Church has made an important impact on the Congress and brought it many blessings. It is our hope that our theological discussions may in some real way prove a blessing to the Synod too in its continuing operations. May God bless all concerned!"
