Prologue
On Friday, November 13th [1992], there were comments about the agenda. Particularly on how items get sent to the House of Bishops from other committees. It was observed that the end result is often that the House becomes reactive rather than proactive with respect to its agenda. There was general agreement that the House of Bishops needs to let others know what it is, and what it does. The hope being that such information would avoid the tendency to make the House of Bishops a clearing house (for items sent from other groups and committees). It was suggested by one member that House items should be those which fall under the categories of faith, order or discipline. Also of concern, was the need for program specifically oriented to new bishops. ("New bishops" were defined as those who have been bishops for one to five years.)
Text
That this House ask the agenda committee to include a session for new bishops' training at the second half of the February 1993 House of Bishops meeting. CARRIED

Prologue
The Primate said that although attendance at the meeting of metropolitans was down, there had still been a quorum. Archbishop Curtis and Archbishop O'Driscoll had sent their regrets.
Archbishop Peers advised that no major issues had been before the metropolitans, but that sharing of provincial news had been helpful.
Bishop Woolsey asked for clarification regarding responsibility for the training of new bishops. Discussion followed. It was agreed that previously it had been the metropolitans who were to take initial responsibility. That might include "assigning" a mentor. Bishop Lawrence enquired whether there was funding available for newly elected bishops to take advantage of the program offered by the ECUSA Theological Seminary's College for Bishops in New York City ? The Primate responded that the responsibility for funding lies with the diocese.
Other points raised:
- the national church should have a policy regarding training for new bishops (an identifiable, articulated policy)
- a process in Edmonton for orientation of a new bishop was noted
- involve Archbishop Douglas Hambidge as a resource person in the training process
- a long-term program (over a 6-9 year period) should be set up
The Primate proposed formation of a small taskforce to meet that evening and report back on Friday about how to move forward on this topic. Archbishop Crawley and Bishop Ferris volunteered. A third member (from the CEP Unit) would be added later.
Later in the meeting Archbishop Crawley reported that he, Bishop Ferris and Archbishop Peers had met to discuss New Bishops Training. They made nine recommendations for the orientation of a new bishop. In his report he said that orientation to the position of bishop before (a bishop's) consecration was the responsibility of the metropolitan. While a metropolitan could appoint someone else as the mentor, the metropolitan needed to build in time with the bishop-elect before the consecration. Some discussion followed.
Text
That the report presented by Archbishop Crawley concerning new bishop's training be commended for circulation through the minutes of the House of Bishops and be commended to the metropolitans for consideration and report to the next meeting of the House. CARRIED

Prologue
Bishop Asbil reported on the new bishops training event which was held in Toronto in November 1995, and led by Bishop Harold Hopkins (of the ECUSA Pastoral Development Office) and his wife Nancy.
Archdeacon Harry Hilchey reviewed the content of `The Anglican Church of Canada : A Handbook for Bishops' which was distributed to the House of Bishops and then Archdeacon Hilchey went through the handbook chapter by chapter.
It was agreed that the handbook was a document for bishops, but that it was not a "private" document. A member of the House of Bishops suggested that future editions of the handbook should name Archdeacon Hilchey as the author.
Text
That the House gives it[s] thanks to Archdeacon Hilchey for his efforts and for the monumental piece of work he did in producing the bishops' handbook. CARRIED
Notes
It was agreed that it is the responsibility of the Metropolitan to ensure that the handbook is not taken (out of the bishop's office) by a retiring bishop. Production of future editions are the responsibility of the Primate's Office.
On behalf of the Metropolitans as well as the House of Bishops, Archbishop Peers thanked Archdeacon Hilchey for his work.
