" Dear Diocesans,
Dear visiting friends,
You are opening the web site of the diocese of Gaspé, a site which is first a place of information
and formation for the entirety of persons residing within the boundaries of our Church of the
Gaspésie and the Magdalen Islands. We are glad to welcome all persons wishing to know us
more. You are all very welcome.
As the new bishop of the Diocese of Gaspé, I welcome you to our website. You can familiarize
yourself with life in the various projects and in the missionary orientation of our Church that
prioritizes the personal encounter with Christ and become disciples. Saint-François de Laval is
the ultimate model of one who spread the good news in our country. Another Francis, our
current Pope, inspires us and calls us constantly to take the missionary shift. It’s in this spirit
that I invite you to visit our site and to be in communion with your brothers and sisters of the
Gaspésie and the Magdalen Islands.
Gaétan Proulx, O.S.M
Bishop of Gaspé
