A History of the Churches of Christian Brothers in French Canada, 1926-2010

The history of Christian Brotherhood churches in French Canada, and more particularly in Quebec, is marked by several periods of change. The author draws on various documents of historical value to highlight the events and characters that marked the work of the Brotherhood movement in the province of Quebec. He adds to this his own memories he has accumulated over the many years he and his wife have spent working in Quebec.

This book aims to strengthen the faith and courage of the workers of today and tomorrow who serve the Lord in the Beautiful Province . May the knowledge of the setbacks, as well as the successes of the past, benefit them. May they remember those leaders who imparted the Word of God to them, and may they persevere in imitating their faith. May they forever submit to the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ who said, “I will build my Church. "To him be the glory!


Richard E. Strout (M.A. Religious Studies, Bishop’s University, 1986) arrived in Quebec with his family in 1970, after being recommended to work by three assemblies of Brothers in the United States. For more than twenty years, he held various positions at the Bethel Bible Institute, including those of director, dean of academic affairs and librarian. From the start, he was actively involved in the work of the Assemblies of the Brothers in French Canada, both locally and provincially. Richard and his wife have four children, eleven grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
