The Recollects, the first Franciscan missionaries, arrived in Tadoussac, Canada on May 25, 1615 with Samuel de Champlain.
We, the Franciscans, will be celebrating the 400th anniversary of their arrival in Canada. Some planning is happening which includes:
Learning from our past, we can forge ahead renewed, reinvigorated and inspired to do what God needs from us in the areas of justice, peace and the integrity of creation in our world today.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God - what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Romans 12:2, New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition
