In Vancouver, a Sister of Notre Dame will receive an honorary doctorate for her work in interfaith relations and ecumenism
In Calgary, nine months after the floods in that city members of the Siska Nation are still displaced. Bishop Henry and the Diocese of Calgary offered a spiritual and practical blessing to those members of the Siska Nation.
In Toronto, retired Bishop Pearce Lacey passed away this week.
and in Newfoundland, Development and Peace's guest speaker was denied a visitor's visa, but the reasons given by Immigration Canada don't sound right to D&P officials or the guest speaker.
