Most Reverend Gérard Pettipas, C.Ss.R. (Grouard-McLennan), Most Reverend Thomas Collins (Toronto), Most Reverend Richard Smith (Edmonton), Most Reverend Terrence Prendergast, S.J. (Ottawa), and Most Reverend Brendan M. O'Brien (Kingston) will receive the pallium. From the Latin word for "cloak", this mantle of white wool decorated with six crosses, shaped like a small stole, is worn over the shoulders by Popes and Metropolitan Archbishops during liturgical celebrations. The pallium is given personally to each Metropolitan Archbishop by the Holy Father.
The pallium is a sign of the special link that unites Metropolitan Archbishops with the chief pastor of the Church of Rome.
