Fa­ther’s 50th well cel­e­brated

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Staff, Stanstead

Fa­ther Al­fred Thibault, who is in charge of the Ro­man Catholic churches in Stanstead and Fitch Bay, got the best homage when, in English, Fa­ther Yvon Malouin, of Sacré-Coeur Church, at a loss of words to de­scribe his col­league, humbly said that Fa­ther Thibault ex­em­pli­fied sweet­ness. “Serv­ing with­out dom­i­nat­ing,” said Fa­ther Malouin.

“I found my joy in what I ac­com­plished,” said Fa­ther Thibault.

Fa­ther Thibault was cel­e­brated, last Satu­day, at Notre-Dame-de-la-Merci Church by his parish­ioners for achiev­ing 50 years in the priest­hood. Two hun­dred of them went on to cel­e­brate him af­ter mass in a church base­ment sup­per.
