(CCCB - Ottawa) – The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) will be holding its annual Plenary assembly in Cornwall, Ontario, October 19-23, 2004.

More than 80 bishops from across Canada are expected to attend the meeting to review pastoral activities from 2003-2004, and to discuss new projects and activities for the next few years.

The agenda includes the selection of delegates to attend the Synod of Bishops in Rome in 2005 on the theme of the Eucharist, a presentation on the third typical edition of the Roman Missal and the Instruction Liturgiam Authenticam (on the use of vernacular languages for the Roman Liturgy), and a discussion on the implementation of the instruction Redemptionis Sacramentum (on certain matters to be observed or to be avoided regarding the Most Holy Eucharist).

The Bishops will also hear progress reports on a number of ongoing projects, including the Special Taskforce on the review of the document From Pain to Hope.

The CCCB is the national assembly of the Bishops of Canada. It supports the bishops in their work by developing resources and providing specialists in different areas such as Christian unity, theology, liturgy, social affairs, Christian education and communications. The CCCB is involved in matters of national and international scope, and provides the bishops a forum where they can share their experience and insight on the life of the Church and the major events that shape society.
