Archbishop Albert Legat's Installation

I had prepared this post before leaving for the International Priests' Retreat in Ars, France and didn't get it posted. So here it is, a little late, but it may be of interest to some among you.

On Monday, September 21st., Archbishop Albert LeGatt, newly appointed Archbishop of St. Boniface, inaugurated his pastoral ministry as Archbishop with a beautiful Eucharistic Celebration in the Cathedral of St. Boniface. A great number of faithful from the Archdiocese along with representatives from other Christian Religions, many priests, deacons and Bishops attended to witness the installation.

Prior to the Mass a dinner and reception was held Fr. Archbishop Legatt. Here you see Archbishop Gerard Pettitpas, C.Ss.R of Grouard McLennan and Bishop Noel Delaquis. Bishop Delaquis was the Bishop of Gravelbourg at the time of the Diocese of Gravelbourg returning in part to the Archdiocese of Regina. Bishop Delaquis is no a member of the Trappist Fathers.

On the left of Bishop LeGatt is Archbishop Joseph MacNeil, Archbishop Emeritus of Edmonton

On the left, Bishop John Corriveau, cap, Fr. Steve Penna of Newman College, Bishop Albert Thevenot, M. Afr., and Archbishop-Metropotain Lawrence Huculak of the Manitoba Arch-Epachy of the Ukranian Catholic Church.

A farewell address was read by Archbishop Emelius Goulet, Archbishop Emeritrus of St. Bonifxace.
