Tilson Meets with Cardinal Collins
OTTAWA, ON – Dufferin-Caledon MP David Tilson attended a reception in honour of
His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins.
“It was a great honour to once again meet Cardinal Collins in person, having just met him several weeks ago where he presided over a ceremony whereby my nephew became a Deacon,” said Mr. Tilson. The Cardinal spoke to the parliamentarians present and was able to share with them some of his thoughts and feelings regarding the priorities of the church.
His Eminence became the fourth cardinal in the history of the archdiocese of Toronto and the 16th cardinal in the history of Canada. He followed Cardinal Aloysius Ambrozic who passed away in Toronto last August at age 81. Cardinal Collins received the honour of a papal invitation to join the College of Cardinals in January of 2012.
