CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Cardinal Thomas Collins of Toronto for reasons of age and has appointed Canada’s youngest Latin-rite bishop to succeed him.

From 2015 to 2021, he was general secretary of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops. Pope Francis appointed him Auxiliary Bishop of Montreal in July 2022.
