Dear Brother Priests,
Following our last correspondence in June, it is with great joy that I cordially invite you to our diocesan Presbyteral Day on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 to be held at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish.
This will be a great opportunity for all of us to take the time to talk and listen to one another, to share our joys and our hopes. If you know of any priests who may not have personally received this invitation, I kindly ask that you extend the invitation to them on my behalf.
United in Christ Jesus,
† Christian Lépine
