Redemptorist Archbishop Gerard Pettipas is known for his insightful homilies and his gentle, authoritative manner. He arrives on Thursday for our first Mission evening beginning at 7pm.
Archbishop Pettipas was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia. At the age of 26, he was ordained a priest on May 7, 1977 by Bishop Thomas Benjamin Fulton, who at the time was the Titular Bishop of Cursola.
At the age of 56, he was appointed as archbishop of Grouard-McLennan by Pope Benedict XVI on November 30, 2006. He received his episcopal consecration on January 25, 2007 by Archbishop Luigi Ventura, who at the time was the Apostolic Nuncio to Canada; Bishop Denis Croteau, O.M.I., Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of MacKenzie-Fort Smith, North West Territories, Canada; and Bishop Gary Michael Jordan, who at that time was Bishop of the Diocese of Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada.
On Thursday, come a little before 7pm to warm up and get into the spirit of our Mission with music by Tim Mah and friends.
