To the Catholic Community in the Archdiocese of Toronto

Peace be with you! I am looking very much forward to being with you shortly as I begin my ministry as Archbishop of Toronto. In so doing, a number of installation related events have been prepared.

Due to space limitations, the installation Mass at St. Michael's Cathedral will be an invitation only event. We are making a broadcast of the installation available on both Vision TV and Salt & Light so that we may reach all those who have an interest from coast to coast.

Those in the Archdiocese of Toronto are also welcome to join me at a number of public gatherings taking place in various regions across the Archdiocese. These occasions will provide us with an opportunity to pray, celebrate and share fellowship together.

I look forward to meeting with you shortly. Until then, please pray for me in my new ministry. Be assured of my ongoing prayers for the diverse and faithful community of believers in the Archdiocese of Toronto.

May the Lord bless you always!

Sincerely in Christ,

+ Archbishop Thomas Collins
