Cardinal-OuelletThe President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), the Most Reverend Lionel Gendron, P.S.S., Bishop of Saint-Jean-Longueuil, has sent a congratulatory letter to His Eminence Marc Cardinal Ouellet, Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops and President of the Pontifical Commission for Latin America, who is Archbishop Emeritus of Québec, in view of the celebration of his 50th anniversary of priestly ordination, 25 May 2018. In his letter, Bishop Gendron writes "Through the many decades of faithful service to holy Mother Church as a priest of Christ and dedicated pastor of souls, you have contributed in varied and significant ways to the spreading of God's Kingdom wherever you have served. Your commitment to the formation of priests, your love for the pastoral care of the faithful, your diakonia of the truth and loyal service to the Holy See have been shining examples of the life-giving ways you use your gifts in the work of evangelization and witnessing." Bishop Gendron will be present in Rome for the celebration, representing the CCCB.
