The B.C. Catholic has a story by Deborah Gyapong about the four Canuck bishops who will be participating in the Synod of Bishops on the New the New Evangelization:

Archbishop Gérald Cyprien Lacroix of Quebec, Bishop François Lapierre, P.M.É., of Saint-Hyacinthe, Bishop John Corriveau of Nelson, and Bishop Brian Dunn of Antigonish will each be making five minute presentations at the synod. They were elected earlier this year by their fellow bishops to be delegates.
