Patron Saint

Louis-de-MontfortThe patron of the Parish and its school is St Louis-Marie de Montfort of France.

St Louis was born on January 31, 1673 in the little town of Montfort-la-Canne, which is located in Brittany, France. He died on 28 April 1716 at the age of 43.

St Louis is also known as the Patron Saint of public speaking, teaching, education, writers and illness.

St Louis was a deeply spiritual man of solitude and prayer, a most humble servant of Jesus. He had a loving devotion to Mary, the Mother of God.

In 1888, Louis was beatified, and in 1947, Pope Pius XII declared him a Saint.

St Louis feast day is on April 28th. His devotion to Mary, love of Jesus and thinking of others is an example for us all.
