New Auxillary Bishop in Quebec City

This morning, I learned of great news when I read on the Archbishop's website that Abbé Denis Grondin became an auxillary bishop of Quebec City.

He used to be a priest in my parish when I lived in Quebec City. This was before he went to Charlevoix.

He is the only priest in my youth who ever spoke out against contraception. I remember after he spoke against it, I went up to him to thank him and I think he really appreciated it because I sensed he was nervous about making that kind of stand.

I hope he gets promoted. I think he has guts.
