Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, September 7, 1974 inalysis Episcopalians debate ordination By ELEANOR BLAU New York Times Service NEW YORK Last month, 11 women were ordained to the priesthood in the Episcopal church in a ceremony that set off waves of controversy in the 3 1- milhon member church Much of the subsequent debate culminating in a deci- sion by the House of Bishops to call the ordinations invalid has focused not on the central and highly emotional issue of ordaining female priests, but on the related and complex issues of what constitutes a valid ordination and who decides this INeither the constitution nor the canons of the Episcopal Church specifically preclude women priests But the language used includes such terms as the pronoun Try Before You 3uy UP'TO 30-DAY TRIAL ON YOUR DOCTOR'S RECOMMENDATION MAI CO SMITH-JONES [HEARING AID SERVICE RIPLEY OPTICAL 6183rdAve S Phone 328 544? and tradition has reserved this order of ministry for men In recent years, the tradition has come under increasing challenge In 1970, the general conven- tion voted to recognize women as deacons, the order below that of priests In 1972, the House of Bishops one of the houses of the Bicameral Convention voted in prin- ciple, at an interim meeting that the priesthood ought to be open to women At the convention a year later the House of Deputies defeated a resolution to accept women as priests Many observers contend that a majority of the lay and clerical delegates to that House supported the resolu- tion and that it lost only because the vote was by diocesan units, not in- dividuals In Chicago, where the House of Bishops voted, 128 to 9, to call the ordination invalid, Dr Charles V Willie, who had delivered a sermon at the Philadelphia service, denounced the body's action as, among other things, "male arrogance He subsequently resigned as vice-president of the House of Deputies and as a member

on ecumenical relations In the Episcopal Church and other churches of the worldwide Anglican com- munion, as well as in the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches, the authority to ordain rests with diocesan bishops in the context of the concept of "apostolic succession This holds that, beginning with the original disciples, Episcopal authority has been passed down from generation to generation through a consecretion ritual in which bishops lay their hands on priests Interpretation of this has varied over the centuries There is almost universal agreement now, however, that this authority cannot be pass- ed on by the bishop-acting alone, but requires involve- ment of the ecclesiastical community of which he is a part A major disagreement in the current controversy over women priests is how this community involvement is ex- pressed Those who consider the Philadelphia ceremony in- valid stress the organized church and its laws and note that the candidates did not go through all the canonical, prescribed steps, notably approval from their parishes and dioceses In addition, the women s diocesan bishops had not authorized the four bishops who participated in the Philadelphia ordination to act on their behalf Therefore, "the ingredients for ordination simply were not present the Right Rev Arthur A Vogel, Bishop of West Missouri, declared at the Chicago meeting
