"It's easy to fall into the trap, when a microphone is in front of you, to start thinking; what script am I supposed to be following? You risk becoming inauthentic."

Archbishop Smith was in the media quite a bit this year! In our year end review He takes a look at how he approached the media, and reflects on the many historic events that occurred this year:

  • The Canadian Papal Delegation to the Vatican
  • The End of Pandemic Restrictions on Worship
  • The Papal Visit to Canada
  • The War in Ukraine
