June 29th marks the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul. It is also the day the Holy Father bestows the Pallium on all the metropolitan archbishops appointed in the last 12 months. (These are the bishops who head of archdiocese, meaning jurisdiction over a metropolitan area.) Salt + Light will be bringing you live coverage of this year's Pallium Mass from St. Peter's Basilica.
This year, two Canadian archbishops will be receiving their Pallia
: Archbishop Michael Miller of Vancouver and Archbishop Pierre-André Fournier of Rimouski (Quebec). Several U.S. bishops will also be recieving a Pallium, including the new Archbishop of New York, Timothy Dolan. Another notable recipient is the Archbishop of Westminster, England, Vincent Nichols.
Alicia Ambrosio and Pedro Guevara-Mann will be bringing you live coverage of the Mass starting at 3:30am (Eastern time) / 12:30am (Pacific time), with an encore presentation at 11:00am (Eastern time).
