On this, the 25th Anniversary of the Beatification of Dina Bélanger, the event was commemorated in a special manner. During the Mass, which was celebrated in the chapel of Sillery (Québec), the site of her tomb, the presence of the choir of Beaumont created a festive atmosphere. Father Gerard Busque, of the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament, and the priest responsible for the three parishes that will be amalgamated in January under the patronage of “Blessed Dina Belanger”, was the celebrant. Many parishioners attended and filled the chapel. Doctor Canuel, for whose recovery we are praying through the intercession of Dina, was also present, serene in spite of his illness. This was indeed a special moment of prayer and fraternity.
The inauguration of the parish of “Blessed Dina Belanger” will take place at the church of the Blessing Sacrament (one of the three churches that will be united under her name), on Friday January 11th 2019, from 17h30 to 20h00.
