Antigonish Bishop Brian Dunn says coming to Rome has been very much a pilgrimage for him. Dunn is one of 10 Atlantic Canadian Bishops meeting with Pope Francis and other papal officials. It began March 11th. Traditionally church officials from Canada visit Rome once every five years. It’s been ten years for Atlantic Canadian officials.
Dunn says in the many places he’s been, the masses he’s attended and the officials he’s spoken to, it’s as if the people and priests of the Diocese have been travelling with him.
Aside from visiting with the Pope and other papal officials, the Bishops have also been to the tombs of Peter and Paul as well major Basilicas in Rome for Mass and other celebrations. The visit wraps up Wednesday. A blog of Bishop Dunn’s visit can be found on the Antigonish Diocese web site.
