Diocese Newsletter - December 1, 2020

From the Bishop's Office
It was with much sorrow that we learned of the passing of Sister Jeanne Bizet, who died at the age of 97. She was the founder of the Myriam Beth’lehem Family. On behalf of our great family that is the Diocese of Bathurst and on my own behalf, I would like to express my sincere condolences to all the members of the Myriam Family, especially to the members who are with us at Maison Myriam-de-la-Paix in Sheila. May the Lord fill you with peace in these difficult times.

We will pray for her and for all the members of her family. Let us remain united in the hope that Christ gives us.
