Prologue
Bishop Short, David Carter and Bishop Berry presented the report of the Doctrine and Worship Committee.
Bishop Short, in reviewing the report, made special note of the service entitled "The Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage" which will be presented to General Synod for approval and publication. It is hoped that a Eucharistic Liturgy will be ready for use and presentation to the 1979/1980 General Synod.
Bishop Short mentioned that the idea of a new Prayer Book for Canada has been discussed at the last meeting of the Doctrine and Worship Committee but stated that no action had been taken. After a brief discussion Bishop Berry gave notice of motion to come later in the meeting.
It was noted that the booklet "Christian Initiation" did not readily identify its sponsors and a request was made that this be corrected.
David Holeton of Vancouver has been working with the Rev. W. Crockett on a revised three-year cycle Lectionary. It was requested that a check be made to see that the Old Testament is properly covered and possibly a section be inserted for family prayer.

Winnipeg, April 6, 1989 -- The Anglican Church's Supreme Court of Appeal has concluded its hearings here this morning.
The Court was convened on Tuesday for the first time in history to hear arguments about the validity of the church's Book of Alternative Services (BAS). Opponents of the BAS argue that only the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) contains valid forms of liturgy (worship services) for Canadian Anglicans.
The Court received written submissions from 20 "intervenors" in the case. Ten of the intervenors made oral presentations to the Court.
The validity of the BAS was challenged by Mr. Donald J. MacLean, of Regina. He initially launched a civil suit challenging the lawful status of the Bishop of the Diocese of Qu'Appelle. At stake may be the authority of bishops whose consecration was conducted with liturgy from the BAS and the validity of the ordination of priests who were ordained under the BAS. Mr. MacLean halted his civil suit when the church decided to hear the case in its own court.
Lawyer Criticizes Client
In a dramatic development Wednesday morning, Mr. MacLean's lawyer publically disassociated himself from comments Mr. MacLean had made to media representatives. Mr. MacLean questioned whether certain members of the Court were impartial.
His lawyer, Mr. Frederick Dunbar, told the Court he was distressed by Mr. MacLean's comments and sought to withdraw from the case. However, he said other colleagues had persuaded him that it would be inappropriate to withdraw halfway through the case.
Marriage Validity Upheld
One of the doctrinal questions before the Court is whether marriages performed with a service from the BAS are valid. Speculation in the Court and in the media reports often focussed on this aspect, possibly causing concern among Anglicans. A survey last year found that most marriages are now based on BAS texts in more than 60 percent of congregations.
At the conclusion of its sitting, the Court responded to this concern with a statement upholding the validity of these marriages. The statement reads:
Because of statements made during the course of these proceedings, concern about the validity of marriages celebrated according to the forms in the Book of Alternative Services has been expressed in the media and may have caused some anxiety.
On this issue the members of the Court wish it to be known that in their opinion these marriages are valid.
Judgment Follows
The Court's judgement is not expected before the first of May, because bishops in the church have the right to submit comments on the case until the end of April. The General Synod, the church's highest legislative body, convenes in mid-June. It is expected the Court will wish to have a judgment ready for General Synod.
BAS Background
The General Synod authorized its Doctrine and Worship committee in 1983 to prepare a book of alternative services "and to present the complete material to the National Executive Council for permission to publish for use, where authorized by the Diocesan Bishop, at least until the 32nd General Synod" [in 1989]. In a subsequent meeting (May 1984) the National Executive Council received the completed BAS and authorized its publication.
Mr. MacLean argued that this authorization is insufficient because the BCP is established by canon (church) law as "the authorized Book of Common Prayer". The BAS, he argues, would also have to be authorized by canon -- a complex procedure which requires approval in two successive General Synods. The General Synod meets only once every three years.
Court Members, Assessors
The nine members of the Court are selected according to criteria established in the Anglican Church's "canon law". It calls for three bishops, three clergy, and three lay members. The Court is also assisted by four "assessors", or advisers, two of whom are legal scholars, and two of whom are theologians.

Prologue
The Ven. P.S. Lucas presented the proposed Service of Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage. He stressed that it was not the intention of the Doctrine and Worship Committee to replace the Prayer Book with CALS series, but rather to commend them to the Church for study and experimental use where authorized by Diocesan authority.
That the service entitled "The Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage" submitted to this General Synod be approved for publication and authorized for use with the permission of the Bishops as an alternative to the service in the Book of Common Prayer entitled "Solemnization of Holy Matrimony".
Comments from the floor were noted by members of the Doctrine and Worship Committee for consideration and possible inclusion in the text before the Service is printed.
It was AGREED that Miss Donna Haley be extended the courtesies of the House.
Text
That in accordance with the Memorial from the House of Bishops the words "I Do" be replaced by the words "I Will". CARRIED ACT 53
Notes
Miss Donna Haley expressed the support of the Sub-Committee on Marriage and Related Matters for the proposed Service in its amended form.
