Religious freedom is the subject of today's story from the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops' plenary. CCN's national correspondent Deborah Gyapong reports:
Canada’s apostolic nuncio warned Canadian bishops about threats to Catholic education in Canada and urged the bishops to “remain aware of developments in our society that jeopardize religious freedom.”
Archbishop Pedro Lopez Quintana, the Holy See’s ambassador to Canada, addressed the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops at their annual plenary Sept. 24. 
“Many Catholic institutions are in danger of losing their Catholic character,” Archbishop Lopez Quintana said. He added that the Pope has spoken of an “educational emergency” worldwide in the face of rampant individualism that “reduces reality to something to be manipulated."
