Comment by CCCB in Response to Receiving Submission of Real Catholic Youth

Friday, September 19 1997

Representatives of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) today received a submission by Real Catholic Youth. Those representing the CCCB were its two General Secretaries: Reverend Douglas Crosby, OMI, and Reverend Émilius Goulet, PSS.

The submission was based on a response to a petition of prayer and support organized by Real Catholic Youth and signed by 36,000 Catholics from across Canada. The representatives of the CCCB said that the submission will be forwarded to the Bishops of Canada for their information and interest.
