Special report: House of Bishops. "Harvey Shepherd is the editor of the 'Montreal Anglican', the diocesan newspaper of the diocese of Montreal. He filed the following reports on the meeting of the House of Bishops, Oct 22.-25 [2010] on pp. 10-11.
"Canadian Lutheran churches appear to be faced with many of the same problems known to Canadian Anglicans. These include shrinking congregations and demands for weekly eucharist. According to Susan Johnson, national bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC), this is leading Lutherans to look at such measures as the use of ordained pastors as 'circuit riders' bringing the eucharist to a number of parishes. Speaking here at the joint meeting of the Anglican House of Bishops and Lutheran Conference of Bishops, she added that there has also been pressure to revive a practice of permitting lay people to preside at the sacrament, as some Lutheran churches did at one time". "Her remarks led several bishops, Anglican and Lutheran, to discuss various proposals for opening up ordination more widely, especially among people already ministering to isolated communities. 'If they are recognized in the community, what is stopping us from ordaining them as priests ?' asked Anglican Bishop Larry Robertson of the Yukon".

Special report: House of Bishops. "Harvey Shepherd is the editor of the 'Montreal Anglican', the diocesan newspaper of the diocese of Montreal. He filed the following reports on the meeting of the House of Bishops, Oct 22.-25 [2010] on pp. 10-11.
The Rt. Rev. Benjamin T. Arreak, suffragan bishop of the Arctic, was guest preacher at St. Stephen's Anglican Church in Chambly, Montreal, when 48 bishops from across Canada attended the joint meeting of the Anglican House of Bishops and Lutheran Conference of Bishops. "God is not looking for perfect things', he told a congregation of about 50. 'He is looking for the willingness of our hearts'." The Rev. Eileen Steele, incumbent of St. Stephen's, "said local parishes would be looking at ways to support the diocese of the Arctic, including ... possibly, a financial contribution to rebuilding the 'Igloo Church' -- St. Jude's Cathedral in Iqaluit, on Baffin Island, destroyed by fire in 2005. Bishop Arreak said the building could be ready for worship by the end of 2011". "Editor's Note: At press time, it was announced that Bishop Benjamin Arreak had decided to retire for personal reasons. The retirment was effective when it was announced in early November [2010]".
