New Executive Leadership For The CCCB Has Been Elected - Perspectives Daily

September 28, 2017
Today, we continue our highlight coverage of the 2017 CCCB Plenary, where the Bishops from across Canada have come together to discuss & set policy to further evangelize the Catholic faith in Canada, and also to elect a new executive for the next term. And yesterday, the Bishops did just that.
The Bishop's assembly elected Bishop Lionel Gendron, the Bishop of Saint-Jean-Longueuil, as the new Conference President, and elected Bishop Richard Gagnon, the Archbishop of Winnipeg, as Vice-President.  Bishop Gendron will succeed Bishop Douglas Crosby as President who ends his term at the end of the 2017 Plenary Assembly.
In other news from the plenary, Archbishop Michael Miller from Vancouver presented the launch of the official National Directory for the Ministry, Formation and Life of Permanent Deacons in Canada. Our very own Fr. Tom Rosica talks one-on-one with the Archbishop about this important resource. See what the Archbishop has to say.
That's all for this week. Join us again on Monday, when I bring you more news and stories from the Perspective of a Catholic lens.
