stavert bruce bishopThe Parish of the Lower Laurentians extends a warm welcome to our interim priest, Bishop Bruce Stavert.
Bishop Stavert will take up part-time residence in the rectory in Ste. Agathe and work with Father Nick to meet the needs of the Laurentian Regional Ministry until a permanent priest is installed. Bishop Stavert was Anglican Bishop of Quebec and Metropolitan of Canada. He served as bishop of Quebec from 1990 to 2004 and as archbishop until 2009. He was educated at Trinity College in Toronto and was ordained in 1964. He began his career at Schefferville, Quebec. He was a fellow and chaplain at his old college until 1976 and then the incumbent at St Clement’s Mission East, St Paul’s River in Quebec. He was chaplain at Bishop's University from 1981 to 1984 and then Dean of Saskatchewan until his elevation to the Episcopate. We are fortunate and grateful to have someone with such a wealth of experience to assist Father Nick in seeing us through this period of transition.
