The Most Rev. Noël Simard
Bishop of Valleyfield
President of the Assembly
Assembly of Quebec Catholic Bishops
The Assembly of Quebec Catholic Bishops provides the bishops with opportunities to dialogue and exchange so that they may better accomplish their ministry of service to God’s people as well as fulfill their commitment to society.
The members of the Assembly are the following:
- Archbishops and diocesan bishops who have pastoral responsibilities in Quebec as well as their coadjutors and their auxiliary-bishops;
- The Eparchial bishops for the Melkite Catholics and the Maronite Catholics who have pastoral responsibilities in Québec;
- The bishop for the Military Ordinariate of Canada;
An archbishop or bishop who has been elected becomes a member as soon as his nomination has been announced.
The assembly works primarily in French. However, several publications have been translated and are available in English. Documents which have been translated in English are identified with the letters (FR/EN) following its title.
