A memo from the office of the Bishop,
With much joy, I share the news that it has become Canadian law for April 2 to be recognized annually as “Pope John Paul II Day”. Below is a letter from Mr. Wladyslaw Lizon, MP of Mississauga East – Cooksville expressing his motivation behind establishing this special recognition day.
As well, included, is the link to the CCCB website which will lead you to the full text of the Act: http://www.cccb.ca/site/eng/media-room/announcements/4069-bill-c-266-makes-april-2-annually-pope-john-paul-ii-day-
As Holy Thursday falls on April 2 this year, we will not be having a special celebration. However, in 2016, special celebrations will be encouraged.
Most Rev. Albert Thévenot, M. Afr.
