- Confirmation. Dear faithful, Already four years have passed since the last visit of an SSPX bishop! It was back in September 2018, when Bishop Alfonso de Galarreta came to give the sacrament of confirmation and to say Mass on the occasion of the pilgrimage of the Canadian Martyrs. Plans for an SSPX bishop visit were attempted in 2020 and again in 2021, but had to be cancelled for obvious reasons. Now, at last, it seems that the Good Lord will permit the long-awaited visit to be materialized in the fall, with the coming of Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais, who is scheduled to visit us at the end of October. Deo gratias!~ Fr. Dominique Boulet, Prior
