Leadership of Canadian bishops’ conference makes annual visit to Vatican

Catholic World News - November 19, 2012

The president and vice president of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops are making their annual visit to the Vatican.

Archbishop Paul-André Durocher of Gatineau (Quebec), the conference’s vice president, says that he spoke with Pope Benedict about the impact of St. Kateri Tekakwitha’s canonization as well as the new evangelization.

“I think, as a whole, in Canada we’ve embraced the concept of the new evangelization,” said Archbishop Durocher. “I would say that Canada is in the midst of what the new evangelization is all about, and the bishops take that very seriously.”

“The universal Church has different faces, depending on where it is,” he added as he spoke about meetings with members of the Roman Curia. “And in Canada we have our own reality. It’s important for us to be able to express that reality, to explain it also, to the people who work here in Rome. At the same time it’s important for us to have a sense of the universal Church.”
