That this Executive Council acknowledges with deep gratitude the distinctive and unique service given the Canadian Council of Churches by the late Rev. W.J. Gallagher, D.D., Secretary of the Council since its inception in 1944. In the formation of the Council and its expanding work throughout the years, Dr. Gallagher gave outstanding leadership and in wisdom, courage and patient attention to detail guided the development of the ecumenical movement in Canada, establishing also strong bonds with the World Council of Churches. This Executive Council of General Synod pays warm and thankful tribute to his life and witness and in extending a message of sympathy to Mrs. Gallagher prays for God's continued blessing on her life.
