Low-key installation for new Bishop of Antigonish

Catholic World News - January 26, 2010

The diocese of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, organized a deliberately quiet ceremony for the installation of its new leader, Bishop Brian Dunn, on January 25. “We gather today as a family of faith experiencing a tragedy,” acknowledged Bishop Dunn—referring to the resignation of Bishop Raymond Lahey, who now faces criminal charges for child pornography. His successor said that Bishop Lahey’s case “has created a scar on this diocese and on the whole Church.” The low-key ceremony was also an acknowledgment of the diocesan bankruptcy—brought on by heavy payments to sex-abuse victims—that had been announced just prior to the public disgrace of Bishop Lahey.
