Main celebrant : His Eminence Gérald Cyprien Cardinal Lacroix ,
Archbishop of Quebec– Primate of Canada

Every year, in the Archdiocese of Quebec, we rejoice as we celebrate the holy missionaries, who left their native France to evangelize the New World, the New France. Today, we also join in a prayer of gratitude to the Lord for the many saints who helped build the Canadian Church : the Holy Canadian martyrs, Saint Marguerite Bourgeois, Saint François de Laval, Saint Marie de l’Incarnation, Blessed Marie-Catherine de Saint-Augustin and the Venerable Jeanne Mance.
