Prologue
Dr. Morden and Bishop Valentine, in presenting the report, stated that the Committee wish to go on record that it gives continuing support on the decision of the Ordination of Women regardless of any written material that has been produced from many sources.
The Committee has discussed the issue of Homosexuality and suggests that other groups and committees may also wish to pick this up.
More resources are available in the Continuing Education Plan at this time; accrued interest will now be used for equalization purposes.
Dr. Morden reviewed the report from the Committee and noted that various subjects have been recommended for referral to specific groups for further attention. In conclusion Dr. Morden commended to the Council the ARCIC Statement on Authority.

"Before the Church decides to put into practice what General Synod in May, 1973, accepted in principle, i.e., The Ordination of Women to the Priesthood, the House of Bishops calls for serious commitment by each Diocese to involve its constituents of each Order in initiating study, thought and prayer on issues surrounding this concern.
To this end, the House of Bishops passed two motions (see page 15), and commends them to the attention of the Church in Canada and to those in the rest of the Anglican Communion who share this concern." CARRIED
