(CCCB – Ottawa)… The next Bishops' Collection for the Needs of the Church in Canada will be held on the weekend of 24 – 25 September 2011.

So that parishes, Church media and diocesan communications services may assist in promoting the Collection, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) is making available an electronic version of the following documents on the CCCB website, www.cccb.ca.

The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) is the national assembly of the Bishops of Canada. It was founded in 1943 and officially recognized by the Holy See in 1948. After the Second Vatican Council (1962–65), the CCCB became part of a worldwide network of Episcopal Conferences, established in 1965 as an integral part of the life of the universal Church.
