The Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation (JPIC) offices of OMI USA and OMI Lacombe Canada are pleased to invite you to attend a Symposium entitled “The Cry of the Earth is the Cry of the Poor, the New Faces of Poverty”.
We have been in contact with the Oblates since 1973. In 1986, we participated in a workshop on “Personality and Human Relations” directed by Father Lomer Laplante O.M.I. Through personal reflection and sharing with the other members of the group, we discovered a profound and nearly urgent desire to live a “missionary experience“ which led us to our first trip to Bolivia in 1987. We remained in Bolivia during 10 out of 15 years, because we also wanted to spend time with our family in Canada.
John is friendly, talkative, colorful and full of stories. He wears his Oblate identity with a sense of pride and fills the room with his warm smile. His conversation is equally expressive in his facial expressions as in his spirited words.
He was born in 1931 in Danby, Quebec, and raised on the Southern Shore of the St. Lawrence outside of Montreal. He began his Oblate life with his novitiate year in 1948.
