The B.C. Catholic has Deborah Gyapong's coverage of the annual plenary of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops in Sainte-Adele, Que:
The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB) is examining the prevention of clerical sexual abuse as one of the many issues of its packed five-day annual plenary Sept. 24-28.
The 90-plus bishops gathered from across Canada will receive the updated guidelines prepared for submission to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Archbishop Richard Smith of Edmonton, the CCCB president, said in his annual president’s address at the Mont-Gabriel Hotel Sept. 23.
“Of course our ongoing response must extend far beyond the articulation of protocols and procedures to an embrace in love and compassion of any person, family, or community affected by this scourge,” he said.
