François, Apôtre de l'Amérique

October 15, 2014

Earlier this year, Pope Francis declared Francois de Laval and Marie de l'Incarnation saints. These two missionaries were amongst the first pioneers who laid the foundations of the Church in Canada. This past Sunday, October 12, pilgrims gather at the Vatican for a special mass celebrated by the Holy Father in honour of their canonization. Therefore it is only fitting that next Monday, the Séminaire de Québec and Salt + Light Television bring to you the world television premiere of a new documentary film on the life of Saint Francois de Laval, first bishop of Québec.
Discover Francois, Apôtre de l'Amérique presented in French on Salt + Light Television this Monday, October 20, 2014 at 9 pm ET / 6 pm PT and Tuesday October 21, 2014 at 2 pm ET / 11 am PT.
