Five Canadian Archbishops will meet Pope Benedict XVI during a special ceremony to be held in Rome, 29 June 2007, on the Solemnity of the Apostles Saints Peter and Paul.

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.

Salt + Light Television will air both the Vespers (Live, Thursday 28 June at 11:30 a.m.; in French at 3:30 p.m.; rebroadcasts at 8 p.m. & Midnight) and the Mass (live on 29 June at 3:30 a.m.; in French at 3:30 p.m. and rebroadcasts at 8:00 p.m. & Midnight).

The Mass with the Imposition of the Pallium will also be available for viewing on the Salt + Light website (http://www.saltandlighttv.org/) on Friday 29 June after 9:00 a.m. ET.

The colours of the web site represent the official heraldic insignia of Bishops. The green corresponds to the galero (ecclesiastical hat) and six tassels on each side that make up the crest and supporters of the coat of arms of each Bishop while the gold represents the processional cross.
