New Bishop Named to Antigonish Diocese

The Canadian diocese rocked by the former bishop’s child porn arrest has received a new bishop. The announcement was made in Rome yesterday just a few short months after former Bishop Raymond Lahey was arrested and charged with multiple counts of possession of child pornography.
The new bishop, Brian Dunn, is the former auxiliary bishop of Saul Ste. Marie. Dunn noted that one of the tasks he faces as the new bishop concerns priest sex abuse.
“The issue of sexual abuse is a huge issue. People are really hurt. I’ll try my best to be with them and help them through it as best I can.”
