Parish History

As early as 1611, Recollect and Jesuit missionaries worked in the area of Fredericton, converting the native Indians, and ministering to French settlers. In 1674 Quebec became an Episcopal See, and missionary priests were sent from that Diocese to minister to the converted Indians, Acadians and the recent Catholic settlers from the British Isles. By 1758 the French inhabitants had left the area, which is now Fredericton, and for about 70 years there was no Catholic church in Fredericton. Therefore, Catholic families travelled to French Village, about 11 miles away, for Sunday mass.

Religious Education

The Religious Education Program supports and enhances the spiritual journey of the children of our parish in conjunction with the circle of family that provides the primary foundation for their spiritual growth. Gathering as a community in the celebration of Mass, instils our children with a sense of belonging and celebration. We want our children to know that, in addition to their family; they are surrounded and supported by the St. Dunstan’s faith community as well as the Catechist community as they embark on their spiritual journey.
