That this National Executive Council appoint Miss Gertrude Beattie and Sister Constance SSJD, as official representatives of the Anglican Church of Canada on the CIRG, until General Synod 1977, and that from time to time they report to the Program Committee. CARRIED
Archdeacon R. Baxter, in presenting the interim report, noted that one year has passed since Dr. David Skelton made his presentation to the House of Bishops. He reported that Phase I of the work is now completed, and the Paper presented represents a summary of the principle recommendations.
Archdeacon Baxter invited Dr. C. Schwenger to address the House. Dr. Schwenger laid particular emphasis upon health care services for the elderly.
Archdeacon Baxter indicated the intention to prepare a program for use at diocesan and parish levels, and expressed the hope that additional attention will be given in theological colleges to the whole area of care of the elderly. He reported that the Anglican Book Centre has agreed to publish a popular edition of the Report.
Archdeacon Baxter expressed appreciation to the Dioceses which have appointed diocesan representatives, and also to the dioceses which have provided financial support to the Project. He said that diocesan representatives will be called upon to be more involved now that the program phase of the Project is being entered into. He said that additional diocesan representation would be welcome and urged those dioceses which have not appointed a representative to do so.
Dr. Schwenger, in referring to the United Nations "World Assembly on Aging" which is to be held in Vienna in July, 1982, noted that the elderly population in the Third World countries is increasing, while traditional methods for care of the elderly are disappearing, creating desperate needs on the part of the elderly.
Archdeacon Baxter thanked the House for the opportunity to present the Report of the Elders and Ministry Project, and said that a full report will be sent to all diocesan representatives.
That the Executive of the Elders and Ministry Project provide appropriate material to be sent to the Bishops to assist in the observance of a "Senior Sunday" in June, 1982. CARRIED #13-2-82

Sister Constance was born Constance Elizabeth Murphy on 2 February 1904. "In her narrative, written over a period of three years with the assistance of David A. Kent, Sr. Constance describes her childhood and youth in Baltimore, Maryland; her decision to enter the religious life in a new city and country, Toronto, Canada; her years of teaching and then her position as Head Mistress of Qu'Appelle Diocesan School in Regina, Saskatchewan; her return east in the 1950s to become Head of the Home for the Aged; and her later work with the elderly. She also provides practical suggestions for ministering to the elderly as well as thoughtful reflections on aging". -- back cover.

This book "is an offering to churches and the world -- a significant and vital addition to the continuum of knowledge -- that will greatly assist churches to be effective and efficient in the struggle to overcome HIV/AIDS. It is a compilation of historical, scientific and statistical material aimed at providing churches and their partners with a better understanding of the dynamics of HIV/AIDS as well as current information to aid in collaborative efforts at answering the challenge of the disease. .... On a practical level this response is deliberately multi-faceted and interactive, encouraging churches and Christian service organizations to build and support coalitions dedicated to overcoming this epidemic". -- Preface.

"The purpose of this book is to assist lay people and clergy to think about the world today in the light of our traditions, and to see some directions for the future. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus helped his audience see the Ten Commandments in terms that were relevant for their day. Although this book does not claim to be a new Sermon on the Mount, it attempts to do a similar task. Ten of the `followers in the Way' of the 1980s have undertaken to look at the Decalogue, and to share their thoughts on what the Law of Moses says to us now. .... In this book, we have tried to see connections with popular ideologies, family life, world issues, and personal moral choices, as well as relationships with the economic, political, liturgical, biblical, and educational spheres of our existence. If we are not exhaustive in our survey, we are at least diverse !" -- Preface p. .

"The latter years may be a time of loneliness, withdrawal and fears or alternatively a serene flowering of much that has been growing throughout a long life. A skilled and loving ministry to the aging can be an important factor in dispelling the former and supporting the latter and is increasing a challenge and incentive to clergy and people. In meeting this challenge a parish can be greatly enriched through the faith, wisdom and experience of its older members." -- Intro.
