Development and Peace congratulates Archbishop Collins on his designation as Cardinal

Development and Peace would like to congratulate Most Reverend Thomas Collins of the Archdiocese of Toronto on his appointment by Pope Benedict XVI as a Cardinal of the Church of Rome. His commitment to social justice and active support of Development and Peace’s campaigns promoting solidarity and equity in the Global South has been a great inspiration to our members within the Archdiocese of Toronto, and across Canada. The organization would like to extend its warmest wishes and prayers to Archbishop Collins for success in this new phase of his ministry.

The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops has released a statement on Archbishop Collins designation.
