Canadian Anglican Church will
allow women to become priests
NEW YORK (/) - In an his-
toric move, the Anglican Church
of Canada has authorized the
ordination of women as priests,
it was learned here yesterday.
The action came late Wednes-
day night at the Church's Gen-
eral Synod in Quebec City, Can-
THE STEP was expected to
have worldwide implications for
the Anglican communion at
large, which has branches
around the globe involving 45
million members, including the
Episconal Church in the U. S.
The Most Rev. E. W. Scott,
primate of the Canadian Church,
said its action "will have a sig-
nificant influence on other pro-
vinces of the Anglican com-
The issne of women's ordina-
tion has become a sharpening
controversy throughout the va-
rious provinces, or national
branches, of the Church.
IT HAS become a particularly
keen issue in the U. S., where
the irregular ordination of 11
women has stirred an intensify-
in strugale over the question.
The Anglican communion,
like the Roman Catholic and
Eastern Orthodox churches, af-
firms the apostolic succession in
its ministry, tracing its linetof
ordination to the time of the
apostles of Jesus.
Churches of that tradition gen-
erally have excluded women
from the priesthood, while most
major Protestant bodies have
admitted women to ordination.

Church, with about 1.5 million
members, became the first Wes-
tern body in that tradition to au-
thorize ordaining women. The
step had been taken five years
ago by the smaller Anglican
Church in Hong Kong.
The bishop of the Hong Kong
Church, the Rt. Rev. Gilbert
Baker, a guest in Quebec City
for the synod there, said its ac-
tion allowing ordination of wo-
men "will have quite an ef-
Questioned about its impact,
he added, "After all, Canada is
one of the largest churches in
the Anglican communion, and
what they do is listened to."
THE VOTE on the matter
came shortly before midnight
Wednesday, after two hours of
floor debate. Both branches of
the bicameral legislature, the
lay-clergy House of Deputies
and House of Bishops, over-
whelmingly approved two reso-
lutions about it.
One of them reaffirmed "the
principle of the ordination of
women to the priesthood," par-
alleling a. similar expression of

vious synod in 1973.-
