Bishop Morgan drew attention to the document "The New Covenant" stating that appeals have been received from native people that the Sunday before the First Minister's Conference be designated a Day of Prayer.
That this House of Bishops respond to the request of Native leaders for the Churches to name a Day of Prayer to precede the final First Ministers' Conference to be held on March 26-27, by designating Sunday, March 22, as a Day of Prayer for Aboriginal Peoples:
And that we commend the document entitled "A New Covenant" prepared as a Pastoral Statement by leaders of the Christian Churches to be used as a focus for this Day of Prayer. CARRIED
There was further discussion to that of the November 1992 House of Bishops meeting about an ad hoc group of the Pension Committee (page 7 of those minutes) and how it was to take place. Bishop Morgan responded by saying that he understood from Mrs. Mason, Director of Pensions, that funding for the group was limited. Bishop Townshend added that the purpose of the ad hoc committee, as he understood it, was purely for fact finding and that the committee had not been put together yet.
That the House request the Pension Committee to appoint at least one of its episcopal members to the task force. And that the House asks the episcopal representative to bring back matters of concern to the House. CARRIED
