Resolution 113 - Proposed Chinese Canon

Resolution 113

Proposed Chinese Canon

The General Synod of the Church in China having brought before the Lambeth Conference a proposal received from the Diocese of South China that for an experimental period of twenty years a deaconess might (subject to certain conditions) be ordained to the priesthood, and the General Synod having referred to the Conference the question "whether or not such liberty to experiment within the framework of the Anglican Communion would be in accordance with Anglican tradition and order," the Conference feels bound to reply that in its opinion such an experiment would be against the tradition and order and would gravely affect the internal and external relations of the Anglican Communion.
