50th Celebration with the CCCB

October 4, 2017

Suzanne Slobodian, Jubilee Campaign Coordinating Officer

It was a very solemn picture to see a procession of more than 80 bishops, all clothed in their cream-colored priestly garments, to the sound of sacred songs and music, in an enveloping and fragrant atmosphere of incense.
