On October 6, 2003, Most Rev. François Lapierre, P.M.E., Bishop of St. Hyacinthe, where our headquarters of Rougemont are located, wrote the following letter to be presented to religious authorities of other dioceses, to help the foundation of our Movement in Mexico and South America:
To whom it may concern:
This letter is to assure you that the Pilgrims of St. Michael are present in our diocese. Their house is known under the name of "Maison Saint-Michel".
This is a devout group of Catholics committed in the research and the promotion of justice. Prayer is of prime importance to them. They periodically edit a newspaper and recently they published Pope John Paul's encyclical "Rosarium Virginis Mariae".
Hopefully, for all these reasons, you will help them in their apostolate.
United in Christ,
+ François Lapierre, p.m.e.
Bishop of Saint-Hyacinthe
