Bishop Christian Rodembourg, a missionary bishop

In this publication you will read about the journey of Bishop Christian Rodembourg, M.S.A., recently appointed bishop of the diocese of Saint-Hyacinthe. His sepcial way of spreading the joy of the Gospel to the world, is to go to meet his neighbors, to rub shoulders with others in their daily lives. This is one reason he went to visit his fellow missionaries in Asia, Africa and South America, while he was assistant general of the M.S.A. and Vice-President of the père-Ménard Foundation. He came back from these humanely and spiritually enriched.

Despite Bishop Christian having risen within the Church to become a bishop, he has never lost his common touch and remains close to his brothers sisters in humanity.

In this edition, we also give you news of the communities of the Missionnaries of the Holy Apostles recently established in Asia. Indeed, in Vietnam and Indonesia, many young people have already come to swell the ranks of future priests. It is an important initiative for the M.S.A. and the Catholic Church.

Closer to home, in eastern Montreal, the Saint-Jean-Vianney College, founded by Father Ménard in 1958, has hired a spiritual, cultural and community relations facilitator. The Foundation supports this outreach project, which offers guidance to young people in their quest to existential questions that so many adolescents face.

And, as is our annual tradition, On November 2 to 10, the Missionaries of the Holy Apostles will celebrate masses for your relatives and friends who have been registred with us. You can use the reply coupon on the back of the newsletter or send us a list of the people you wish to be included; the cost is $ 10 per name. All gifts received during this campaign will be used for the formation of spiritual leaders and future priets.
