Assault on a Priest at St. Joseph’s Oratory

Montreal, March 22, 2019 – The CRC has learned of the disturbing news of the attack on Fr. Claude Grou, former Superior General of the Congregation of Holy Cross and current rector of St. Joseph’s Oratory. Thankfully, the Montreal Archdiocese has announced that Fr. Grou’s condition is stable.

United in prayer with the Congregation of Holy Cross at this difficult time, we invite our members to pray for Fr. Grou and for all victims of violence.
