Amid concerns, Canadian bishops express confidence in agency

Catholic World News - June 20, 2011

The Permanent Council of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops has expressed confidence in the work of Development and Peace, the official international development organization of the Church in Canada.

In April, two bishops canceled a Mexican Jesuit’s speaking appearances, sponsored by Development and Peace, over the priest’s ties to groups that support abortion.

“The bishops are proud of the work accomplished by Development and Peace over the past 40 years, and want to ensure its survival and mission for many years to come,” the Permanent Council said in a statement. “Certain questions have been raised during recent months about how this organization carries out its mission. A dialogue on this has already begun … The Permanent Council is confident that this dialogue will provide responses to these questions and assist Development and Peace to continue its mission with serenity.”
