On 27 October, Fr. Paul-Elie Cadetwas officially installed as pastor of Notre Dame de Sainte-Croix and Rector of the Blessed Basile Moreau Shrine at a Mass celebrated by the Most Rev. Yves Le Saux, Bishop of Le Mans.
In a packed church with his parishioners, Fr. Cadet made his profession of faith and received the blessing of his Bishop. A member of the Pastoral Animation Team gave the parish key to the Bishop, who in turn handed it over to Fr. Cadet.
In his homily, Bishop Le Saux spoke fondly of his esteem for Blessed Basile Moreau, the Congregation of Holy Cross, and the Shrine.
Concelebrating the Mass were Fr. Robert Epping, Superior General, Fr. Romuald Fresnais, Superior of the Vicariate of France, Fr. Joseph Gonsalvez, Assistant Pastor, Fr. Luc Marie Bouvier, and Fr. Icemick Jean-Baptiste.
After the Mass, an apéritif was shared in the presbytery, which was followed by a lunch at the Solitude of the Savior, the Motherhouse of the Marianites of Holy Cross.
