A member of the Pius X Secular Institute, Christian Beaulieu was ordained a priest in 1968. His experience and enthusiasm make him an extraordinary preacher. Throughout his ministry, he was close to youth, couples in difficulty and those on the outskirts of society. In 1985, he founded ‘Le Pharillon‘, a home for youth with drug, alcohol and sex addictions. He continues to be moved by a fire that burns from within, revealing the beauty and the value of each human being, created for nothing less than infinite love!
A wife and mother of three, Hélène has been working in evangelization for over twenty years.
