Message From our Pastor and News
This weekend (September 26th) we honor Saint Jean de Brébeuf (1583-1649), one of eight Jesuit Missionaries who missioned in the new world. Saint Jean missioned mainly among the Huron tribes. He first arrived in Quebec the Summer of 1625 along with Fathers Charles Lalemant and Énemond Massé. A missionary among the Hurons for over 20 years.
Saint Jean knew if he were to win over the hearts of the Huron to Christ, he must assume their way of life (similar to the purpose of Christ’s Incarnation among us in order to win us over back to the love of God the Father). He would often join them on their travels, usually carrying the heavier load – earning him both the esteem of the people and the nickname “great oak”. Saint Jean also dedicated himself tirelessly to learn the Huron language; translating much of the Catechism, many prayers, and biblical passages from French into Huron, also arranging for them the first print in their language.
Saint Jean was later captured by the Iroquois and tortured to martyrdom. Among one of the tortures – in mockery of Baptism – they boiled pots of water and poured them over his head three times (for the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit). And after seeing him withstand so many terrible tortures and remaining firm in his faith, they finally ripped out and ate his heart wishing in some way to have some of his courage.
Despite it being a Sunday, in a special way we honor Saint Jean de Brébeuf for the seed of faith he has left us, the seed of faith he has planted in this country for us.

Every year our Religious Family honours Our Lady of Luján on May 8, her feast day, with Novenas, Solemn Masses and the Marian Consecration of our new Novices. Our Lady of Luján is a celebrated 16th-century icon of the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ. The image is on display in the Basilica of Luján in Argentina.
