Canadian Bishop leaving

A Roman Catholic bishop has asked to be discharged from his duties to be with the woman he loves. "I'm in love ... with a woman," Rev. Raymond Dumais, Bishop Emeritus of Gaspe, Que., said this week on Radio-Canada, the CBC's French-language counterpart. "I don't feel I'm living in sin. I feel I'm living something special," said the 52-year-old, who lives with his partner in Bic, Que., about 540 km northeast of Montreal. A priest since 1976, Dumais was 43 when he was ordained as bishop for Gaspe, overseeing a diocese of 63 parishes and just more than 94,500 Catholics. After taking leave on several occasions, he retired from active duty in July 2001.
