The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) has named two Canadian young adults as its delegates to the upcoming meeting of youth, to be held at the Vatican 19-24 March 2018. The gathering is in preparation for the October 2018 Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops on Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment. The two delegates are Ms. Emilie Callan and Mr. Jacob Jason Genaille-Dustyhorn.

Emilie Callan photo-2Ms. Callan is 28 years old, bilingual and grew up in a French-speaking family in Cornwall, Ontario. She has been on staff with the Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation for several years, and is a television producer and writer. She served as one of the two co-hosts of the recent National Youth Forum organized by Salt & Light TV on "Young People, Faith and Vocational Discernment".

Jacob Genaille-Dustyhorn-webMr. Genaille-Dustyhorn is Cree and 21 years old. He is currently a student in the Indian Teacher Education Program at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, and is also involved with the Youth for Christ Hockey League in the province.

The criteria for selecting names of young people for the pre-synodal meeting include being between 18 and 29 years of age and actively involved in the life of the Church. In addition, the Holy Father has indicated he wishes the meeting to gather youth with different perspectives, not only Catholics, which thus also reflects the local situations of young people in different countries.
