The Father Arthur Gallien page has been added.  As you see, there are several google translations.  As always, they essentially get the message across, but that’s about it.

There are two articles about which I would like a little more information.  I’m not looking for word for word translation, but only an accurate but  general gist of the article to put the excerpt posted into better context.  Here they are:

(1)  Scroll down to the  years 1968-69, 1967

Note the entry “assisted in introduction and naming of what is now known in Petit Rocher as the Rowing Festival.”  In brackets is a link to this source document Father Gallien-Rowing Festival

Then there is a google-translated excerpt.  I would appreciate you reading through the entire article.

Two questions:  (1)  Can the excerpt be polished up a bit?  and, (2)  is there anything else of import in the article which warrants mention?

(2)  Scroll to 1955

There is a link to this  Silhouettes Spring 2005 publication

I am lost on this one.  What role, if any did, Father Gallien play in the film industry  in New Brunswick?  He is mentioned there for a reason.  Was he a bit of a photography buff?  or is this  specifically film?

Finally, can anyone find a date of death?  There must be an obituary online somewhere, but try as I might I cannot find it.  He is indexed in the 1985 Canadian Catholic Church Directory  but not the 1991, so probably died between 1985 and 1991?


The  pages for Fathers Ubald Theriault and Normand Dugas are nearly finished. I will be busy today so will probably get them posted tomorrow (Friday, 14 October 2016)

Enough for now,

    The article is about the Provincial Archives looking for home movies, or rather, amateur films. Father Gallien is mentioned because he filmed a lot of the Acadian Peninsula’s celebrations of the 200th anniversary of the Deportation of the Acadians back in 1955 while he was in Neguac.
