International Buy a Priest a Beer Day! | The Catholic Gentleman


  1. I hear you're going to Chapeau. When I worked in Chalk River we would drive to Quebecs and go to Fred's whenever we could for a great meal. I heard the restaurant burnt down and Fred died a few years ago. Enjoy your new appointment.

  2. If you're ever in Toronto I'll certainly buy you a beer. But I must retain home field advantage as I insist it be at :->

  3. Rationalist: I look forward to taking you up on the offer... even in such a bar!!

    Thanks too on your good wishes. As to Fred's, indeed it did burn down a couple of years ago. It was a tragic day for the town, as was the event a couple of months later when Fred died. The Meilleur family became close friends during my two previous assignments in Chapeau and I was honored to celebrate his funeral... even though I ended up being dressed down by my Bishop for the homily I preached. Such are the joys of parochial ministry!

  4. As Grad students in the 80's we loved Chapeau and the hotel for dinner. I would fill up my old Toyota with other students and we'd go there on a Friday night. I was the designated driver but we still all had fun. Unfortunately all the female graduate student I would take there would talk about was Fred. Alas. But the food was great. And the music too.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join

The May 2010 Euthanasia Prevention Coalition Newsletter can now be found at: Bill C-384 was soundly defeated by a vote of 228 to 59.
