"At the approaching outset of the Year of Consecrated Life, which will be on the first Sunday of Advent (November 30, 2014)," Msgr Parent, Vical general of the Archdiocese of Montreal, welcomes "with great joy this gift of a favourable time."
In his message, he writes: "My heart is filled with recognition for the immense work that has been accomplished by the people of consecrated life. They have contributed greatly in building Quebec, Canada, and, in particular, the Archdiocese of Montreal."
Msgr Parent pays a "special tribute to the communities that came from abroad, especially those from France, and also to the numerous groups of consecrated life founded in Quebec and, in particular, in Montreal."
