Prologue
Bishop Woolsey reported that the Diocese of Athabasca had recently had a Conference on the laying-on-of-hands and anointing with oil.
There is no statement from the House of Bishops regarding the anointing of the sick with oil by lay people. The House was reminded that, in his paper, Bishop Henry Hill stated that any Bishop can authorize anyone to anoint, but it is usually assigned to clergy only. There are no diocesan policies, but some Bishops have given special permission.
Text
That the House of Bishops affirm the rubric on page 555 of the Book of Alternative Services as constituting the general guidelines for unction.
The rubric reads: "The oil for the anointing of the sick is to be used only by clergy and those lay persons who have received authorization by the diocesan bishop." [CARRIED #2-11-86]

Notes
This entire issue, which is inset into vol. 9 no. 4 (Pentecost 2003) is here presented as "a theological contribution to The Baptism Project, LC's [i.e. Liturgy Canada's] attempt to foster dialogue about the process of Christian Initiation. Dr. Holeton offers an extensive and, we believe, very important historical account of Fr. Fairweather's significant contribution both the BAS and, even more importantly, to a renewed understanding of the theologically necessary link between Baptism and Eucharistic fellowship." -- From Editorial by John Hodgins to vol. 9 no. 4 (Pentecost 2003), p. 3.
"Eugene Fairweather's contributions to the work of the national Doctrine and Worship Committee (D&W) and to the Book of Alternative Services (BAS) lay primarily in two areas: unmuddling the impasse between the House of Bishops (HoB) and D&W in the work towards new rites of Christian Initiation and drafting the rites of Ordination" (p. 1).
The article is a concise and penetrating analysis of the development of the "new" theology of baptism and Christian initiation (including the issue of admission to Communion) which took place in Canada between 1969 and 1985. It focuses on the controversy and conflict between the Doctrine and Worship Committee (and its sub-committees and task forces) and the House of Bishops. Fairweather's pastoral, political and theological contributions are described, especially his crucial report delivered to the October 1981 [* See paragraph below] meeting of the Joint Task Force on Christian Initiation entitled "Christian Initiation : our Present Situation" which included "A Modest Proposal" and set out seven key principles about baptism and Christian initiation.
*N.B. A typo, two thirds of the way down the second column on page 4, says October 1982 instead of 1981. Footnotes 12-14 on page 8 confirm that the report was in fact presented in October 1981
