Prologue
Bishop Woolsey reported that the Diocese of Athabasca had recently had a Conference on the laying-on-of-hands and anointing with oil.
There is no statement from the House of Bishops regarding the anointing of the sick with oil by lay people. The House was reminded that, in his paper, Bishop Henry Hill stated that any Bishop can authorize anyone to anoint, but it is usually assigned to clergy only. There are no diocesan policies, but some Bishops have given special permission.
Text
That the House of Bishops affirm the rubric on page 555 of the Book of Alternative Services as constituting the general guidelines for unction.
The rubric reads: "The oil for the anointing of the sick is to be used only by clergy and those lay persons who have received authorization by the diocesan bishop." [CARRIED #2-11-86]

[Canadian Churchman Editorial on Unusual Faith Healing Practices]

The Anglican Church of Canada's national newspaper says the church's hierarchy must decisively disassociate itself from unusual faith healing practices which border on exorcism.
The Canadian Churchman, in an editorial to be published this week, is critical of diocesan officials for what it calls their inaction in handling unusual faith healing practices at St. Matthias Church in downtown Toronto.
It is the responsibility of the church to speak now with a unified voice so that such practices are never again allowed to corrupt the faith and morals of anyone, the editorial says.
It says that for more than two years officials of the Toronto diocese have been aware "all was not well" in the parish. It says church officials and a number of Canadian clergy knew of the unusual practices and meetings held in the church and elsewhere in Toronto.
On October 4, a coroner's jury found Rev. Canon G. Moore Smith, rector of St. Matthias, and his wife, negligent for not summoning aid for their ward, Miss Katherine Globe. The 18-year old girl died in the St. Matthias' rectory of meningitis resulting from a ruptured brain abscess.
Ontario's supervising coroner, Dr. H.B. Cotnam, called the inquest August 31 after receiving reports that a group within St. Matthias practiced exorcism of devils by prayer. Canon Smith, his wife and an assistant parish priest, Rev. Douglas Tisdall, denied the group exorcised evil spirits.
The editorial says that other than "friendly chats" with Smith, prior to Miss Globe's death, Toronto's clergy did nothing to force the issue.
"All dioceses in Canada have archdeacons and rural deans who are supposed to keep a watch on parishes and clergy in their designated areas. We wonder how often these reverend gentlemen check the parishes and how often they meet to discuss problems with their bishops," it states.
The editorial also asked the church to make public the investigation into faith healing in the diocese so that people may know the church is not engaged in trying to "sweep an unhappy situation under the carpet."
The church must be at least as honest as the secular inquest hearing which investigated Miss Globe's death in public, it says.
"The church must air its mistakes and incompetence and heresies so that all may know it seeks to preserve the truth," the editorial concludes.
Rt. Rev. George Snell, Bishop of Toronto, on October 27 named a seven-man commission to investigate the whole area of the healing ministry in Toronto diocese.
Chairman of the commission is Rev. Maurice Flint, a doctor of pastoral psychology, and lecturer at Wycliffe College. He is also director of chaplaincy services for the Ontario Department of Reform Institutions.

"'Anglican healing has nothing to do with placing the emphasis on a cure', explains Shelley Tidy, pastoral care associate at St. Paul's Bloor Street in Toronto, who for the past six years has chaired the Bishop's Committee on Healing in the diocese of Toronto. 'Everything is done in the name of lightening a person's burden by placing it at the foot of the cross', she says". "Anglican healing sacraments include the laying on of hands and anointing with oil, both accompanied by prayer. While performing the laying of hands is restricted to ordained clergy, anointing may be performed by licensed laity under the supervision of a priest". "Every year, Tidy runs a popular fall weekend program at the Convent of the Sisters of Saint John the Divine in Toronto to train lay anointers through lectures, practical training, group discussion and prayer".

Early in his tenure as rector of St. Stephen's Anglican Church in Saskatoon, Sask., Archdeacon Larry Mitchell "invited people to come forward to the altar for a healing prayer. ... The lineup for healing extended along the altar rail and down the aisle to the back of the church. 'That experience told me this is a ministry the church needs to develop', says Mitchell". Mitchell "became involved with the International Order of St. Luke the Physician (OSL), an ecumenical organization started in 1932 by John Gayner Banks, an Episcopalian priest. Today with more than 7,000 current members, OSL provides missions, conferences, training and resources on Christian healing ministry". Mitchell served as North American director of OSL from 2004 to 2011, the first Canadian to hold that office.

Brenda Garvey is an honorary lay pastoral assistant at St. Cuthbert's, Oakville, Ontario. She is also multifaith chaplain at Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga, and a licensed lay anointer. "In 2006, Trillium hired Garvey to assist patients with cancer and other terminal illnesses and their families. 'Death is as much a sacred miracle as birth', says Garvey, who notes that when she anoints Anglicans with the same oil with which they've been baptized, 'they feel they have come full circle and been touched by God again'. As Garvey sees it, her job is to help people of different faith, or of no faith, have 'a good death experience'. By offering comfort and meaning, Garvey helps them 'to be present in each precious last moment'."

"Pat Lithgoe, a parishioner of St. Christopher's, Burlington [Ont.], trained as a nurse before learning Therapeutic Touch (TT) , a 'contemporary interpretation of several ancient healing practices; that promotes the natural healing process". "Five years ago, a group [trained in TT] obtained approval from their rector, the Ven. Dr. Steve Hopkins, to offer therapeutic touch before Sunday morning services in a quiet room removed from the sanctuary. 'People who receive it report feeling better, more whole and more relaxed, even in the midst of illness,' says Hopkins. 'I'm happy to walk this journey and explore how it fits within our ministry overall'."

"Last October [2012], the Rev. Canon Joseph Asselin, rector of St. Cuthbert's, Oakville, Ont., observed St. Luke the Physician's Day by inviting Bishop Michael Bird of the diocese of Niagara to perform a laying on of hands at the altar rail after communion. At first, some in the congregation balked. Some even boycotted the service. 'So we went out of our way to make it non-threatening and ordinary, the way it should be', explains Asselin. He estimates that 70 per cent of the people present at the service opted for healing. 'It speaks to a need. Now that the controversy has died down and we have established trust, we plan on doing it more regularly', Asselin says". Includes colour photo. [Text of entire article.]

"The Toronto convent where lay anointers are trained is the Mother House of the historic Sisterhood of St. John the Divine, which was founded in 1884. Next door is St. John's Rehab Hospital, the convalescent hospital founded by the sisters. Today it provides specialized rehabilitation services to 160 inpatients and a large and growing number of outpatients. This year, St. John's [Hospital] celebrates its 75th anniversary. Four sisters provide spiritual and compassionate care to all hospital patients and run the hospital's Anglican chapel. Patients and staff use the chapel, which also provides a Wednesday morning Anglican eucharist with laying on of hands and an ecumenical Sunday service. In addition, the chapel has a Muslim prayer mat and a blank wall facing Mecca. On Fridays, priests bring communion to Roman Catholic patients, and the sisters provide Sabbath candles to patients of the Hebrew faith".
