Canon 16.06

 

Resolved, That Canon XVI, Section 16.06 of the Canons of the Diocese of California be deleted in its entirety:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Explanation
The Committee on Governance, at the request of Abbott Bailey, then Canon to the Ordinary, conducted a review of all diocesan committees to identify any committees that are no longer functioning as originally envisioned, as well as any overlap or redundancies in responsibilities and operations among the committees that remain active and essential to the Diocese. The Commission on Church Architecture and Furnishings is a Diocesan Organization created by Canon 16.06. There is no record of any membership on the Commission or meetings held by the Commission in the past 10 years. The Governance Committee concluded that the Commission no longer meets a diocesan need and recommended that it should be discontinued.
