Photos of the Ordination Day of Bishop Damphousse in Alexandria

After an easy hour's drive from Ottawa, I arrived on a bright sunny Sunday afternoon in Alexandria, the place of Most Reverend Marcel Damphousse's ordination as eighth bishop of Alexandria-Cornwall.  Some twenty or so bishops were present, twice that number of priests and deacons, many religious and a cathedral full of the lay faithful.

Official photographers took pictures during the cermony and receptions afterwards in Alexandria and Cornwall; here is a selection of photos taken before and after the ordination and installation liturgy.
