Coast to Coast: October 6 to 10

Here's a few things happening in the church across Canada:
In Montreal, one family is fighting to stay in the country after their refugee claims were denied. The family's parish has launched a campaign to raise public awareness about their case. The parish pastor calls the government's reaction so far a "wall of indifference."
In Edmonton, parishioners mourn the loss of one young priest whose unique look and creative approach to ministry was model for reaching out to young people.
and in Mission, B.C. the Benedictines unveil the latest addition to their monastery church: a bejeweled crucifix that took seven years to complete...no small feat given that the artist is 90 years old.
and on a lighthearted note, Bishop Gary Gordon of Victoria, B.C. posted  a blog about the recent plenary assembly of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops. It seems Bishop Gordon has embraced the art of the "selfie" and is sharing his knowledge with his brother bishops.
