St. Andre Bessette

Saint Andre Bessette was orphaned at the age of 12. He entered the Congregation of the Holy Cross at age 25 and was the Doorkeeper at Notre Dame College in Quebec for most of his life. St. Andre Bessette became known as a healer after an epidemic broke out which he worked fervently to stop through healing. He gave all of the healing credit to St. Joseph and planted medals of St. Joseph on the property of Mount Royal he wanted to be sold to his Order. The property was sold to the Order and a chapel is there now which is still in use to this day. Saint Andre Bessette's feast day is January 6th.
