Bishop Bergie of the Diocese of St. Catherines bucks the trend of Ontario's Catholic Bishops

The Diocese of St. Catherines is a suffragan diocese of the Archdiocese of Toronto. It is the smallest of the five dioceses that make up the Ecclesiastical Province of Toronto, yet it is has done something to be commended.

In a time where Cardinal Collins has shuttered public Mass for his faithful, Bishop Bergie has decided to keep public Masses open for his own flock, balancing individual pastors' insights with the requests made by the provincial government.

The letter detailing his decision is below.

Bishop Bergie is to be commended for this action.

Now, only one question remains.

When will Cardinal Collins follow Bishop Bergie's example?
