Retired Bishop of Victoria, British Columbia, and Vatican II Council Father Bishop Remi de Roo was present at all four sessions of the council. He will visit St. Andrew Church Sunday, Dec. 9.
The morning starts at:30 a.m. for Eucharist of the Second Sunday of Advent, with Bishop de Roo preaching at 11 a.m. in a community forum on Vatican II in the Community Center. A question-and-answer session will follow from noon to 12:30 p.m., preceding a lunch. (A free will offering will be taken.)
At 1 p.m. Bishop de Roo will sign copies of his new book Chronicles of a Vatican II Bishop.
Bishop de Roo, now 88, maintains his energy and enthusiasm for the renewed vision of the Council and his firm belief in its overarching mission: to present the gospel values of Jesus in a loving and effective way to a world that hungers for truth, justice, compassion and lasting peace.
St. Andrew is at 806 NE Alberta St., in Portland.
