Bishops.

Amos, Quebec--Pope John Paul has appointed Auxiliary Bishop Eugene Tremblay, 68, of Quebec City to be bishop of the diocese of Amos. The diocese counts 95,000 faithful with 23 diocesan and 18 religious order priests, 111 religious sisters, and 52 lay pastoral assistants.

Ottawa, ON--Former Peterborough, ON, bishop James Doyle (19762002) died here on April 22, 2004, at the age of 74. Bishop Doyle served as the chairman of the English sector Commission on Liturgy of the Canadian Confederence of Catholic Bishops from 1979 to 1989, and as the CCCB representative with the International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL) where he was vice-president from 1991 to 1997. Those were the years that ICEL produced its controversial modern translation of Collects and prayers for the Missal, and English-Canada adopted the inaccurate, inclusive-feminist New Revised Standard Version of the Bible for its readings in the Daily and Sunday lectionaries. Bishop Doyle also lent his authority to the approval of the seriously deficient Ontario Fully Alive family education program. R.I.P.
