Rev. Keith Churchill, First Baptist minister, was approached by the Games society this fall to co-ordinate plans for two drop-in centres. More than a dozen congregations, including Jewish, Buddhist and Chris- tian groups, are discovering the project includes extensive hospitality planning. Priesthood preview RAYMOND (HNS) Dr. H. G. Taylor, George Pittman and Derral Nilsson spoke at the recent annual LDS Church "priesthood preview" here. About 200 people attended, including 100 11 year old boys and their fathers, the honored guests. Churches have been asked to provide their own sup- porting finances, budgeted at A full-time drop-in centre co ordinator will be hired during the Games. Purpose of church involve- ment is to provide a bridge between the community and athletes through hospitality and personal interest. Action includes: Drop-in centres at First Baptist and St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, situated across the street from athlete accommodations in Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute; Bilingual counselling clinic in conjunction with Games medical services; Hospitality organization providing guest meals for athletes in private homes; Religious service infor- mation Provision of up to 500 billets for two-or-three-night stopovers by parents, relatives and friends of athletes; Recreational enter- tainment. Southminster United' Church has announced a New- foundland Night for athletes from that .province. The visitors will be treated at a church sponsored dinner Feb. 16. Cathedral awaits builder TORONTO (CP) At the end of the 19th century, they tore down part of a Roman wall in England, brought the bricks to Toronto and placed them in the ceiling of a building down- town. If the building had been fin- ished, it would have been one of the greatest sights on the after a famous European cathedral. But in 1935, the project was abandoned. Today there is just a vast room with a magnificent ham- mer-beamed ceiling and a rec- tangle of foundation walls for what was to have been the Cathedral of St. Alban-the- Martyr. It was planned by John Stra- chan, Anglican Bishop of To- ronto, who founded what now is the University of Toronto. He collected gifts of land and money for the cathedral in 1843, but died before a site was chosen. Niagara bishop tempted to ordain women priests TORONTO (CP) Rt. Rev. John Bothwell, Anglican bishop of Niagara, said this week that he is tempt- ed to ordain women to the priesthood without official approval of the Canadian Anglican House of Bishops because a firm decision on the matter by his peers continues to be put off. Bishop Bothwell is attending a meeting of 35 prelates in nearby Port Credit. He said he is frustrated by the fact that two days of discussion on the sub- ject had resulted in a decision to submit the matter to further study "without a set time limit." Bishop Bothwell said he had every sympathy with four United States Episcopal bishops who ordained 11 women priests in Philadelphia last July. He could not get a seconder among fellow bishops here when he tried to introduce a motion that would permit any individual Canadian bishop to ordain women for his own diocese without risk of penalty. A suggestion that one or two dioceses try the innovation on an experimental basis met with similar disapproval. "We keep proposing more studies even though General Synod (highest legislative body of the church) approved of the principle of women priests more than a year Bishop Bothwell said in an interview. "It passed by a large major- ity and it was clear that the synod intended we should begin to move on it. The bishops who have reservations are holding up the whole process." He said he has no objection to further study "if only there could be an agreed timetable for action." The House of Bishops will bring the issue back for ratifi- cation to a General Synod in 1975. A site was agreed on in 1885 and in 1887 its cornerstone was placed. The crypt was built in 1889. The great chancel containing the altar and the choir stalls was built in 1891. In 1921, Queen Victoria's son, Prince Arthur, then Governor General of Canada, laid the cornerstone for the second stage which was never built. The original esti- mated cost soared to more than million by 1921. Sir Henry Pellatt, who was then building Casa Loma as his home, was chairman of the finance committee to raise funds to complete the second stage, but failed. In 1929, fire destroyed most of the interior of the building and some said it was a sign from heaven that God was fed up with the project. The bishop said it was God's way of drawing attention to the un- completed cathedral. But the project was finally abandoned in 1935. The finished part has been used as a parish project was so big that the altar and choir area is large enough for a congregation of more than 300 persons. The remaining foundation walls were finally covered in 1964 when St. George's College was built on top of them. Church Chuckles CAKTWKir.HT Transition troubles Anglican professor KINGSTON, Ont. (CP) Rev. Henry Gordon Hill, 52, says he is apprehensive about becoming bishop of the Angli- can Diocese of Ontario. A professor at the Universi- ty of Windsor, he said: "I see lots of problems in making the transition. I will have much to learn about the administra- tion of the diocese." Mr. Hill said he will also have to win the confidence of many of the clergy in the diocese extending from Trenton to Brockville and about 40 miles north to Parham. More laymen than clergy voted him bishop. He said his cautious attitude to proposed union of the Anglican and United Church might be a cause of some coolness towards him by clergy who want union quickly. Mr. Hill said his new posi- tion will mean a change of habits. A bachelor, he will move from a converted boathouse beside his mother's home to quarters in Kingston more suitable to a bishop.

Member decline 'good' TORONTO (CP) The recently-elected moderator of the United Church of Canada says that a decline in the church's membership in recent years has done more good than harm. Rt. Rev.
