The Glengarry News - - Front Page - -- Scott Carmichael

Fa­ther Guy Des­rochers will be or­dained as Aux­il­iary Bishop of the Diocèse catholique d'Alexan­dria-Corn­wall Catholic Dio­cese this Fri­day (Fe­bru­ary 22) at 2 p.m. at St. Fin­nan’s Cathe­dral in Alexan­dria.

Fa­ther Des­rochers – whose ap­point­ment was an­nounced by Pope Fran­cis in mid-De­cem­ber – will as­sist Bishop Ter­rence Pren­der­gast.

The Pope stated last year that the Alexan­dria-Corn­wall dio­cese and the Arch­dio­cese of Ottawa would be united “in the per­son of the bishop” – and that a sec­ond (aux­il­iary) bishop would be named to as­sist the Arch­bishop.

Fa­ther Des­rochers, a 62-year-old na­tive of Hull, Que., was or­dained a priest in 1989.

Rev. Guy Des­rochers
