The digital pioneer of the Canadian Church

December 15, 2011
The Canadian Church is becoming increasingly engaged in new media. As the first Canadian priest with a blog, called Waiting in Joyful Hope, Fr. Thomas Dowd started the trend. 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.
