Le 11 novembre j’ai participé dans la messe mensuelle de la communauté catholique de Madagascar à l’église Holy Canadian Martyrs, rue Main, Ottawa. Après, il y a avait une réception. [Photos: L'abbé Francis Jaozanaka, OFM Cap.]
On Sunday, November 11, I joined the Malagasy community at a special Mass to commemorate the canonization of the first saint of Madagascar, the Jesuit martyr St. Jacques Berthieu. The community gathers on the second Sunday of the month at Canadian Martyrs Church.
The liturgy was initiated by and is sustained by priest graduate students in the Capital region, such as currently by Jesuit Father Hasiniaina Rakotoarisoa, a doctoral student in Canon Law at St. Paul’s University.
