200th Anniversary of the birth of Marie-Rose Durocher – Mass at Saint-Antoine-sur-Richelieu

It is the closing of the celebrations of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Marie-Rose Durocher. Having begun at Saint-Antoine-sur-Richelieu, the public celebrations ended in the same place on October 16th with a solemn Mass at the Parish of St-Antoine, followed by a delicious sit-down meal at the Community Centre.
