On Thursday, May 11, 29 bishops from Quebec met again with Pope Francis before completing their first ad limina apostolorum visit in 11 years.
After a week of retreat in Ariccia, the prelates discussed with the prefects of the different Roman Dicasteries this week. They also met the Pope for the first time on Thursday May 4, exposing their pastoral challenges for nearly three hours.
