A blessed celebration

The day was perfect with the Holy Spirit as the special guest.

My husband was ordained at a beautiful ceremony at the 
"Sacré-Coeur " church in Saulnierville NS  with about 300 people in attendance

 Gerald Tufts

 Ordained by Arch-Bishop Most  Rev. Anthony Mancini
Gerald receives the sacrament 
 Most Rev gives him his Ministry... 
"Work with families "!

The new Deacon celebrates the mass, 

and thanks everyone for all their contributions to his spiritual journey.  

Meet the coordinator of our church 
Jean- Louis Robichaud 

His message was sooo touching. While working on the parish archives he found a letter Gerald's ( late ) mom had written in 1958, in it she is thanking a priest who had moved to another parish, for his services. 
She wrote, she had been praying for one of her young sons to choose the sacerdotal. 
Those payers were answered today, Nov 8 2014 
" Never loose faith  when asking for something" .
 The whole family was certain her presence was felt in the church on this special day! 

My sister, Simone,  made him a special quilt.  

The "Faith Quilt" by Anita Goodesign! 
It is absolutely beautiful and it will be treasured forever♥
