CCN's Deborah Gyapong covers the funeral of Father Bob Bedard, founder of the priestly community Companions of the Cross, in the latest article on The B.C. Catholic website:
The founder of the priestly community Companions of the Cross (CC), Father Bob Bedard, was entombed in Ottawa’s Hope Cemetery May 6 in a mausoleum some expect will become a pilgrimage site.

As the sun was setting, about 200 people, gathered on the grass as Ottawa Archbishop Terrence Prendergast celebrated the Eucharist, on the altar of Father Bedard’s mausoleum. The entombment’s date, the first Friday in May, also marked the anniversary of the CC’s founding 27 years ago.
