Canadian bishop brutally beaten in rectory
October 25, 2010
Bishop David Monroe of Kamloops (British Columbia) is in serious condition after a man brutally beat him in the cathedral rectory on the evening of October 22. The suspect had escaped from a psychiatric ward earlier in the day and was apparently psychotic at the time of the attack.
The bishop “has suffered severe trauma to the face and head,” said a police officer. “Bishop Monroe also sustained bruises and lacerations to other parts of his body as a result of the brutal attack.”
Another priest in the rectory suffered a dislocated shoulder during the attack.
