Missing Canadian bishop sends email, says he was in Jerusalem

Catholic World News - August 03, 2010

Bishop James Wingle, whose whereabouts have been unknown since he resigned as bishop of St. Catharines (Ontario) in April, has sent an e-mail to the administrator of his former diocese. Bishop Wingle told Msgr. Wayne Kirkpatrick that he spent time in Jerusalem, spending the first part of a sabbatical “in prayer and rest.” Bishop Wingle, who did not disclose his present location, added that he will resume his sabbatical later in the summer and work on a catechetical project.
