Text
Be it resolved that this General Synod:
(a) Affirms the essential unity of the act of Christian Initiation consisting of Baptism (with water in the name of the Trinity) together with the laying-on-of-Hands and first Communion, by which a person is reborn of water and the Spirit and incorporated as a full member of the Church, sharing in the Body of Christ.
(b) Directs the Doctrine and Worship Committee to continue its study of Christian Initiation and if possible to recommend to the next General Synod appropriate liturgies and pastoral procedures to implement this principle.
(c) Approves the interim use, at the discretion of Diocesan Bishops, of experimental liturgies which combine Baptism (for candidates not already Baptized), the Laying-on-of-Hands, and first Communion, as recommended by the Task Force on Christian Initiation, under these conditions:
i) The Bishop should officiate;
ii) Children should first receive Communion at an age deemed suitable by their parents in consultation with the parish priest and in the context of the life of the parish;
iii) for young children, the preparation and commitment required by the present Confirmation rite are not expected; the parents, however, should receive careful instruction, and the children will, at an appropriate age, be given the opportunity for a public affirmation of faith in and commitment to Christ.
(d) Directs that these resolutions, together with the report of the Task Force on Christian Initiation, be referred for consideration and counsel to the Anglican Consultative Council at its forthcoming meeting.
After direction on voting procedure had been sought from the Assessors, the Primate put the revised Resolutions on Christian Initiation, section by section, to the House.
Section (a) was ADOPTED IN BOTH HOUSES.
Section (b) was ADOPTED IN BOTH HOUSES.
Section (c) was DEFEATED IN THE HOUSE OF BISHOPS.
Section (d) was ADOPTED IN BOTH HOUSES.

Prologue
The Primate welcomed Dean Fricker and Dr. Fairweather, and invited Bishop Berry to introduce the report.
Dr. Fairweather provided a brief review of the work of the Task Force, noting that it was asked to consider two main topics:
(a) the overall pattern of Christian Initiation
(b) the production of a Rite of Baptism for inclusion in the Alternative Services Book.
Dr. Fairweather spoke of the double standard held in Canada concerning children receiving Communion, recognizing that spiritual harm may be caused. The Task Force urges that, if a child has been allowed to receive Communion in one parish, the child should be allowed to receive Communion in another.
Dean Fricker spoke of the Baptismal Rite of the Episcopal Church, and some of the situations that Church has encountered by citing the experiences of four dioceses.

Reverend Edgar Bull
Prologue
It was requested that the alternative motion moved by the Bishop of Nova Scotia and seconded by the Archbishop of Qu'Appelle, at the meeting of the House of Bishops in Niagara Falls, January 22-23, 1971, be tested by the Synod. The Bishop of Nova Scotia indicated that he did not wish to move the alternative motion and therefore it was introduced by the Reverend D. Crawley and seconded by the Reverend B. Barrett.
Moved by: Reverend D. Crawley
Seconded by: The Reverend B. Barrett
"That this General Synod:
1. Receive with appreciation the report of the Task Force on Christian Initiation, recognizing the evident desire in the Church for leadership and direction regarding Christian Initiation.
2. Request the Task Force to continue its studies and report to the next General Synod, giving due consideration to (a) Practical details which would be involved in the implementation of the considerable changes recommended.
- (a) Study of additional possibilities with attention to the present practice in other parts of the Anglican Communion, and in other Churches.
- (b) Possible effect on our Church of so considerable a change from our present established practice.
Request individual bishops before authorizing in any diocese experimental practice in Christian Initiation along the lines recommended by the Task Force, to give due consideration to the possible divisive effect in our Canadian Church of too wide a variety of practice, recognizing that the theology of Church membership is involved".
After some discussion, the mover and seconder agreed to delay the motion, give it further study, and re-introduce it.

Notes
Archbishop Fred Hiltz reflects on a eucharist service -- "styled as a picnic eucharist" -- at the outdoor chapel of St. Francis at the Sorrento Centre on the shores of Lake Shuswap in British Columbia. "Just before the celebration began, the chair of the board of the Sorrento Centre broke the news that its much-loved executive director, Christopher Lind, had died earlier in the day. Many were moved to tears. Chris had helped the centre renew its mission as 'a place of transformation -- a place for learning, healing and belonging' and had launched a capital campaign with an eye to 'The Next Fifty Years'." At the offertory, the celebrant invited the children to come forward and sit on a blanket before the altar and gave them either a plate of bread or a cup of wine which they held up at the words of institution. "Having received holy communion that day, I was moved to ponder afresh how great a mystery it is, and cherish anew this food so awesome and so sweet".

Prologue
Bishop Pryce commented on the working paper prepared by the Confirmation Task Force, composed of representatives from the Children's Unit, the Youth Unit, the Doctrine and Worship Committee, the House of Bishops, and national staff.
Bishop Pryce stressed that this is a working paper and not a report. He said that the Program Committee asked the Children's Unit to study this matter, and requested the Primate to appoint a task force.
Bishop Pryce said that the working paper needs to get into the church to be read and discussed. The task force is asking for a full day at the Fall, 1989 meeting of the House to present details of the report and discuss implications. He told the bishops that the document has gone to General Synod members and is to be dealt with at the information dialogue on June 16th as part of the Doctrine and Worship dialogue.
Statistics regarding the national church and quantities of the document are available from the Reverend Paul MacLean.
