75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE CANONISATION OF ST. LOUIS MARIE DE MONTFORT
20 July 2022 marked the 75th anniversary of the canonization of our Founding Saint, St. Louis Marie de Montfort. To celebrate the joyous and momentous event, Boys’ Town, in collaboration with St. Gabriel’s Foundation, came together to lift in the air a large balloon sculpture in the shape of a rosary!
St. Louis Marie de Montfort is a saint in the Catholic Church and was canonised (declared a saint) on 20 July 1947 by Pope Pius XII. He was known for his devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and of praying the rosary.
May we always carry out our mission of helping children and youth in-need as we follow the footsteps of St. Louis Marie de Montfort to help the last, the lost and the least.
*Please note that the balloons were not released into the sky.
