Theological Commission tables report

The Primate’s Theological Commission has released its report on whether the blessing of same-sex unions is or is not a matter of doctrine. It is entitled ‘The St. Michael Report’ in honour of the retreat centre belonging to the Sisters of Church, where it was written. This report was prepared at the request of the General Synod of 2004 and has now been given to the Council of General Synod. It is to be studied by the Anglican Church of Canada in preparation for the next General Synod in 2007.
