A Day of Many Celebrations

August 12, 2023

Thursday June 29 was a day of great festivity for the Diocese of Charlottetown as we gathered to celebrate the installation of our 14th Bishop Joseph Dabrowski CSMA.

We had a tremendous meal upstairs at the Charlottetown Hotel and Bishop Joseph circulated through the room and got pictures with everyone.

At the conclusion of the banquet there were special greetings and formal congratulations offered to Bishop Joseph from dignitaries from across Canada and Europe. Here are a few of their photos and some of the Bishop’s reaction expressions.

Bishop Joseph then addressed the guests at the banquet and later had a few photographs with friends and family before proceeding to St. Dunstan’s Basilica.

We then proceeded to St. Dunstan’s Basilica for the Installation Mass. Here is the YouTube Video:

Here are some still photos from the Mass.

All good things come to and end and here is the procession out of the Basilica:

After the Mass there was a public reception in Memorial Hall at the Confederation Centre of the Arts. Many people shared the happy day with Bishop Joseph and his family.
