Slight improvement for Kamloops Bishop David Monroe

Kamloops Bishop David Monroe continues to make daily, gradual progress as he recovers in hospital. He is showing slight improvement this morning and his speech is coherent. He is not able to receive any visitors.

As someone in the Kamloops Chancery pointed out, “Bishop Monroe was attacked while performing his duty as a priest,” responding to a request to see a priest at 10 o’clock at night.

The next update will be tomorrow morning or when there is something significant to report.


  1. We love you Bishop David and pray that Jesus and His Most Blessed Mother will comfort you in this time of pain. Michelle and Ed

  2. Get well very soon Bishop Monroe, I am keeping you in my prayers. Fr. Elmer Empinado

  3. Dear Bishop Monroe,

    We are thinking about you. Get well soon. Liana and Charlie (in New Jersey)
