Granite Staters set sights on Quebec pilgrimage
Diocese of Manchester spokesman Tom Bebbington said between 425 and 435 Granite Staters are signed up for the trip, with half or slightly more from the greater Manchester area.
Cardinal Lacroix, a graduate of Trinity High School, will greet and bless the pilgrims Wednesday evening and concelebrate the closing Mass with Manchester Bishop Peter Libasci on Friday, July 18.
If this were merely a touristy trip to Quebec, Brunette, 60, said he and his wife, Terri, would be staying home.
He said, “Everything you do is finding ways to get closer to Christ and like I said, develop your faith.”
On the day Lacroix celebrated Mass at his former Manchester church last March, he encouraged New Hampshire residents of French-Canadian heritage to attend the anniversary festivities in Quebec.
