Meet the Spiritual Director:

Fr. François grew up in both Canada and Mexico. He entered the Missionaries of the Immaculate Conception of Lourdes in 1995, made his novitiate in Argentina and pronounced his first vows there in 1997. After completing his studies in philosophy and Theology at l’Université Catholique de Toulouse in France, he served as a chaplain in the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes for ten years. While there, he sang as a soloist in the international choir, welcomed pilgrims from all over the world, and coordinated the volunteer program in French, Spanish, English and Italian. He has also served as a priest in Gibraltar and Spain. He currently serves as pastor of St Theresa of the Child Jesus Church in Abbeville.
