Ontario diocese has a new shepherd

Msgr. Serge Poitras appointed bishop of Timmons

Bishop-elect Serge Poitras, PH
The B.C. Catholic has a story by Deborah Gyapong about the appointment of a new bishop in Ontario:
The Timmons diocese’s long wait for a new shepherd is now over with the announcement of Pope Benedict XVI’s appointment of Msgr. Serge Poitras Nov.10.

The bishop-elect, who will be ordained Dec. 27, will succeed Bishop Paul Marchand SMM, who died in office on July 24, 2011.

Since 2010, Bishop Poitras has been serving as the Adjunct Under Secretary of the Congregation for Bishops at the Holy See, under its Prefect, Cardinal Marc Ouellet who was named to head the Congregation in June 2010.
