Rev. Basil Moreau

Post by Rochin54 on Fri Aug 17, 2007 11:27 am

I am sure many of you already know, but The Venerable Father Basil Anthony Marie Moreau CSC will soon become Blessed. Moreau will be beatified September 15 in Le Mans, France. Fr. Moreau formed the Congregation of Holy Cross in 1837. Eventually, as we all know, men from the Congregation of Holy Cross made it out to Portland to continue their mission as "Educators in Faith" out on the Bluff.

They also started a small Catholic university in Northern Indiana widely referred to as "The UP of the Midwest."

Anyway, I know this is a great occasion for the members of CSC, as well as those of us able to be educated and formed by them.

There is an article about this in the latest edition of the Catholic Sentinal:

http://www.sentinel.org/articles/2007-35/15523.html

Lots of good quotes from UP priests. They are hosting all kinds of events at UP the weekend after next to celebrate the beatification... a list of them is at the end of the article.
