The Most Rev. Raymond Poisson, President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops (CCCB), has issued a Pastoral Letter to Young People. The Letter is dated 12 October 2022 in honour of the anniversary of the death of Blessed Carlo Acutis, the first beatified millennial. Through this Pastoral Letter the Bishops hope to inspire young Catholics to live their faith in an extraordinary way, encouraging them to strive toward holiness, and assuring them of the steadfast support and accompaniment of their Bishops along their individual journeys of faith.
This Pastoral Letter responds to the CCCB’s virtual conversations with over 200 young people from across Canada, between the ages 12 to 25, held in the fall of 2020. Click the button below to read the letter, and watch the video summarizing it!
