Montreal Chinese Catholic Mission

This was followed by the Centennial Mass concelebrated by 6 priests in three languages: English, French and Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin). Right after Mass, there was a festival parade dance of the golden dragon and two beautiful lions forming a procession of priests, religious and parishioners moving slowly across China Town from the Church to the Chinese Centre.

This was followed by a Chinese banquet dinner where more performance was shown by different ages. At the end of the performance, Sr. Cecilia Hong presented to Fr. Joseph Liu a replica painting of Venerable Delia Tetreault and her two companions and children in the name of Sr. Michelle Payette, Provincial Superior who was unable to attend the celebration. This was a replica of the painting in the Chapel of Immaculate Conception at the Basilica of St. Anne de Beaupre. Sr. Celia Chua also presented our centennial book: Women Without Frontier to Fr. Joseph Liu as a souvenir of the relatedness of our history during the past 100 years. Sr. Cecilia assured them of the continual support of the MIC Sisters.

The celebration ended with cutting of the huge 100th Birthday cake! Happy Birthday Montreal Chinese Catholic Mission! Blessings to all those who worked at this vineyard!

Our Dream for the Mission


With the Father, Son and Holy Spirit

we want to live a family spirit that binds us

in joy and in pain,

where loneliness and insecurity find a safe and warm place,

where our pain and gifts are understood and accepted,

where compassion abides.

I succeed, we succeed; I fail, we fail; I rejoice, we rejoice!

Then, our hearts filled with joy and confidence,

we will with faith leave the familiar path

and tread the unfamiliar, knowing our family surrounds us.

A family that heeds our fears

and recognises the seeds of the hidden treasure.

It looks not on my accomplishments

It looks at my inner being

This is where it feels like home forever…


What better way of living the Good News

within and across frontiers!

It is our life that matters most, not what we can do.

Despite the brokenness that we come with on this holy ground,

a precious treasure awaits to be shared…

the fullness of God`s love lies here.

Within this treasure lies the richness of our being

and the ability to share the Good News.

To every age, people and nation our hearts want to reach,

in every situation our hearts want to open,

hearts wherein each oone of you has helped to sow seeds,

seeds of hope, trust and acceptance

This heart become whole again and again,

become broken again and again…

Yet God`s love abides always!

From the ashes of our failures and hearts longings,

the Lord creates anew.

What better way of making Him known

than to sing His goodness for ever

with our life, with our being!


Thank you, Gracias, Merci, notre Père pour le cadeau de la vie

Nous voulons donner notre vie pour la mission au service de ton peuple

Aide-nous à rester fidèle à laisser nos cœurs se remplir de joie

pour chanter sans cesse la chanson de l`amour

Pour le monde avec notre vie,

Pour gravir le sommet des collines et franchir les montagnes

Nous grandissons ensemble dans l`amour en famille dans la fraternité
