Resolution 114 - Proposed Chinese Canon

Resolution 114

Proposed Chinese Canon

The Conference reaffirms Resolution 67 of the Conference of 1930 that "the order of deaconess is for women the one and only order of the ministry which we can recommend our branch of the Catholic Church to recognise and use." It also approves the resolution adopted in 1939-1941 in both Houses of the Convocations of Canterbury and York "that the order of deaconesses is the one existing ordained ministry for women in the sense of being the only order of ministry in the Anglican Communion to which women are admitted by episcopal imposition of hands."
