St. Jean Chrysostom - Installation of Father Yves Marchildon as Pastor

Évêque et docteur de l’Église. D’abord moine puis ermite, Jean continua, comme patriarche de Constantinople, à mener une vie simple et pauvre.
Il dénonça avec éloquence (son nom veut dire « bouche d’or ») les excès des riches et il mourut sur la route de l’exil en 404.

Saint John Chrysostom
Bishop and Doctor of the Church

O God, strength of those who hope in you, who willed that the Bishop Saint John Chrysostom should be illustrious by his wonderful eloquence and his experience of suffering, grant us, we pray, that, instructed by his teachings, we may be strengthened through the example of his invincible patience. Through our Lord.

On Sunday morning, I presided at the Installation Liturgy for Father Yves Marchildon, CC, the new pastor of Annunciation of Our Lord Parish in Gloucester.

Father Scott McCaig, Moderator of the Companions of the Cross, concelebrated the Mass, as did Father Jerry Gauvreau, the associate pastor.

Best wishes to Pastor and Parishioners in the years ahead!
