Two Deacons to be ordained to the priesthood in Quebec in the traditional form!

From Notions Romaines blog and Rorate Caeli:

It is with joy that we relay the information that Messrs. abbots Alexandre Marchand (Gatineau) and Jacques Breton (St-Hyacinthe) will be ordained priests in the Holy Church of God on Saturday 13 June this year.

We can truly rejoice because both deacons of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) will be ordained in Canada, specifically in the diocese of St-Hyacinthe, Quebec by His Excellency, Archbishop Terrence Prendergast, Archbishop of Ottawa. These ordinations are likely to be the first in the extraordinary form of the Roman rite in Quebec for decades.

Messrs. abbots Marchand and Breton are seminarians studying at the International Seminar of the fraternity to Wigratzbad (in Germany). The FSSP is responsible for conducting his apostolate as part of the traditional Roman liturgy and train priests.

In French Canada, the FSSP is in charge of two parishes (St. Clement, Ottawa and St-Zéphirin, Quebec) and assists the pastoral work in another parish (St. Irenaeus, Montreal).

We hope to provide more details on this in the coming months.

This is joyous news and let us hope that they be appointed to the Quebec parishes!
