“A Priest Out in the Cold” is the title of a well-known work. On June 2nd, 2013, Father Yves Normandin is coming back into the cold down into the street again, but this time he will be accompanied by all of us for the Feast of Corpus Christi at Saint Cesaire. The ceremony will begin with Mass at 10:00AM followed by a procession around noon.
The SSPX is well aware that it is greatly indebted to Father Normandin, who, before the arrival of our priests in 1977, had laboured to gather together a large part of the faithful who would later frequent our chapels.
In order to express gratitude, to honour the Catholic Priesthood in him and to beg the Lord that he continue sending labourers into his vineyard, Mass was celebrated on the Feast of Corpus Christi at Saint Cesaire on June 2nd, 2013 to celebrate Father Normandin’s sixtieth anniversary of priesthood.
This day was the occasion to honour other priests who ardently laboured in this country. To cite only those celebrating jubilees, Father Dominique Boulet will celebrate his 25 years of priesthood; Father Gueguin his 20 years; Father Medard his 15 years and Father d’André his 10 years.
