The Holy Father approved the Heroic Virtues of the Servant of God Bishop Ovide Charlebois almost one year ago (on November 28, 2019) so he became Venerable, the last step before his beatification. The Congregation for the Causes of Saints worked on the text of the Decree during the following months after the approval of the Pope and then it had to be translated into Latin (the official language of the Decree). This is why the Holy See released the Decree only some weeks ago.
For the beatification, we need to present a miracle that we could attribute to his intercession to the Holy See, so the work of animation in order to spread the devotion to him is crucial at this stage. For this reason, Father Fabio Ciardi, Director of the General Service for Oblate Studies and Father Diego Saez Martin are preparing some events for November 21st, 2020 the day after the anniversary of the death of the Venerable Charlebois (that occurred on November 20, 1933). All are invited to join the event.
The events are scheduled for November 21, 2020:
