It is proposed to establish an ecumenical chapel at London Airport, Heath Row, England, to be known as St. George's Chapel. The British Government has provided the site, substantial gifts have been made to the building costs, and major sums have been received from the churches and airlines in Great Britain. The member churches of the Canadian Council of Churches have been approached to see if they would be prepared to recommend to Air Canada that it makes a donation to this project.
At its recent meeting, the Committee on Ecumenical Affairs approved the resolution, "That the matter be referred to the National Executive Council for its sympathetic consideration."
That the Anglican Church of Canada, through the National Executive Council, cooperate with other churches in Canada in soliciting from Air Canada a donation to this project. CARRIED
"The Council for Social Service has had the privilege from time to time of publishing the Reports of studies made concerning issues which are related to the Council's work. The Report of a Special General Synod Committee on Narcotic Addiction is one such. The Bishop of Ottawa [the Rt. Rev. Ernest S. Reed], as Chairman of the Committee gathered together a group of specialists who, over a period of years, gave careful consideration to this problem. Once again the Church has performed a service for the whole community. The Report of the Committee was received most favourably at the Annual Meeting of the Executive Council of General Synod meeting at Hamilton, in September 1960. The resolutions arising out of this Report form a part of this Bulletin. Executive Council requested The Council for Social Service to publish the Report in full `for information and future study'. This Bulletin is the result." -- Intro.
