On June 1st, 2011, Msgr. Patrick Powers, P.H., General Secretary of the CCCB, accompanied by the CCCB Director of Administration, Mr. Paul Bowman, received close to 40 diocesan financial administrators.  This meeting took place as part of the diocesan financial administrators’ annual meeting, which was held in Ottawa from May 30th to June 2nd and hosted by the Archdiocese of Ottawa.  During their visit to the CCCB offices, the diocesan financial administrators shared a light meal and were able to exchange with the General Secretary on the projects and challenges they meet in their service to the Church. Msgr. Powers used the occasion to explain the specific mission of the CCCB, as well as its progress in maintaining a balanced budget while responding to the needs of the bishops, in collaboration and in service of the dioceses.  He highlighted, for example, the CCCB Publications Services as a privileged means of financing the work of the Episcopal Conference, while at the same time encouraging the evangelization and formation of many people involved in the pastoral life of our Church.

The visitors were happy with their visit and exchange with the CCCB General Secretary.  For the CCCB, it is important to maintain good relations with diocesan administrators and to encourage better communication in today’s world of rapid communication tools, like the internet, despite that the dioceses and CCCB offices are often separated by hundreds of kilometers.
