Fr. Luc Tardif, OMI

Notre-Dame-du-Cap: Last December 8, on the occasion of the Feast of the Immaculate, Archbishop Terrence Prendergast of Ottawa presided at the Eucharist and bestowed the Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice Medal on several persons, among whom were Fr. Luc TARDIF and Sister Lorraine Desjardins, Superior General of the Sisters of Charity of Ottawa. This papal decoration was established by Pope Leo XIII on July 17, 1888. It is usually awarded to laity or members of the clergy for exceptional services to the Church. It is the highest honor that can be attributed to lay persons by the pope. It is noteworthy that several other members of the province have already received this award, among them Fathers Alexandre TACHÉ, Yvon BEAUDOIN, Francis MORRISEY, Eugene KING and undoubtedly several others.
