KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS SPONSOR MEMORIAL MASS AT OUR LADY OF MT. CARMEL CHURCH

On October 31, all attending the Mass were piped into the church and later into the hall for the luncheon by a Knight with a talent for the bagpipes

A view of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel church as the entrance procession, led by an honour guard, formed up

The 4th Degree Honour Guard poses after Mass, hoping to catch the notice of Columbia Magazine editors for possible inclusion in a future number

What's on the menu? Vegetable or meat lasagna, Caesar salad, garlic rolls for starters--it all seems mighty tasty....

VISITATION TO LA PAROISSE SAINTE-ANNE-DE-PRESCOTT

A view before Mass of the interior of the church of Sainte Anne, recently refurbished and the pride of the community

The Pastoral Team pledges to exercise leadership as humble servants and ask the cooperation of all parishioners

On All Saints Day (La Toussaint) a visit to the church cemetery is in order; the monument at the cross of Christ commemorates two sons of the parish who became priests: Mgr Carmel Corbeil (1914-1973) and his brother Abbe Louis Corbeil (1917-1984), who served for a time as pastor here
