The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops is the national assembly of the Bishops of Canada. It was founded in 1943 and officially recognized by the Holy See in 1948. After the Second Vatican Council (1962–65), it became part of a worldwide network of Episcopal Conferences, established in 1965, as an integral part of the life of the universal Church.
On 26 September 2017, during the CCCB Plenary Assembly, all the Bishops of Canada will be invited to participate jointly in the consecration of the country to the Blessed Mother following a Eucharistic celebration which will take place at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Ottawa. (text from the CCCB.ca)
We invite all souls to pray a Novena beginning September 17th for the healing of Canada in preparation for this historic gathering of our Bishops in the Nation's Capital.
