The digital pioneer of the Canadian Church

December 15, 2011

Now an Auxiliary Bishop in Montreal, Bishop Dowd has extended his online ministry to Facebook and Twitter. In this Witness interview filmed at the 2011 CCCB Plenary Assembly in Cornwall, Ontario, the newly ordained bishop offers his insights on the Church in the digital age.
