Two Canadian Archdioceses represented for pallium imposition on the Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul

June 29, 2008
Congratulations to Archbishop Anthony Mancini of Halifax and Archbishop Martin William Currie of Saint John's, Newfoundland, who received the pallium today from Pope Benedict XVI.
Every year on the solemnity of the two great Apostles Saints Peter and Paul, the pallium is imposed upon Archbishops that have been appointed in the previous twelve months. It symbolizes the bond that these Metropolitan Archbishops have with the Holy See. Thirty-nine others received the pallium in Rome and another two will receive it in their home Archdiocese.
May the Lord strengthen, guide, and bless all these men, their ministry, and the people they shepherd!
