Canadian Archbishop to Receive Pallium on Tuesday's feast of Sts Peter & Paul

June 26, 2010
Tuesday marks the feast of Saints Peter and Paul.
legattAs always, it is also the day that Metropolitan Archbishops who have been appointed in the last 12 months receive the Pallium. The Pallium symbolizes their role as shepherds and teachers (Fr. Rosica's offers more on the Pallium in a blog entry from 2009 HERE).
This year, Pope Benedict XVI will impose the Pallium on one Canadian Archbishop: Archbishop Albert LeGatt of the Archdiocese of St. Boniface, Manitoba.
He'll join 37 other Archbishops from around the world who have gathered in Rome to receive the Pallium and celebrate Mass with the Holy Father.
Join S+L Vatican correspondent Alicia Ambrosio for full coverage of this special Mass.  It will be broadcast live on Tuesday, June 29th at 3:30am ET, followed by an encore presentation at 8:30pm ET/9:30pm PT.
Leading up to the Pallium Mass, join Salt + Light Monday, June 28th at 12:00pm ET as the Holy Father presides over first Vespers for the feast of Saints Peter and Paul at the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls.
As always, you can visit our Papal Events page for more information on our coverage of the Holy Father's upcoming activities.
