Most Rev. Christian Lépine comments on the appointment of Msgr. Alain Faubert as auxiliary bishop.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is with great joy that we received the announcement on Tuesday morning that Bishop-elect Alain Faubert will be ordained an auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Montreal. I sincerely thank Pope Francis for his pastoral solicitude, and I am grateful to the Apostolic Nuncio, H.E. Archbishop Luigi Bonazzi, for his dedication to and his abiding concern for our diocese.

I invite you to pray for the new bishop, so that the Holy Spirit will support him as he responds to Jesus Christ's call.

May God bless you and keep you in his peace.

+Christian Lépine
Archbishop of Montreal
