Over the past several weeks, we have been recognizing a series of major milestones in Cardinal Thomas Collins’ life, including, the 15th anniversary of him being announced as the new Archbishop of Toronto, his 75th birthday and the 15th anniversary of his installation as Archbishop of Toronto.

Friday, February 18, 2022, marks the 10th anniversary of Archbishop Collins becoming a cardinal. This honour is a fitting recognition of Cardinal Collins’ talents and commitment to the Church, and the Archdiocese of Toronto congratulates him on this special day.

Ten years ago, YouTube was becoming popular and so for this milestone anniversary, we were able to find some video recordings that covered this time in Cardinal Collins’ ministry. Please click the videos below to re-live the consistory -- and the events leading up to it -- that created 22 new cardinals, including Cardinal Thomas Collins.
