On March 21, 2016, two refugees originally from Eritrea moved into the new house belonging to the Fraternité Nazareth at 2575 rue Letourneaux in Montreal. Mrs. Ghidey Ghirmay and her son Essay Michael had arrived in the country a month previously. After fleeing their country of origin and passing through Ethiopia, they waited for five years in Uganda before joining their two Eritrean aunts, Briketi and Hermon, who have been living for several years in Montreal.

At the suggestion of several confreres, the Provincial, Fr. Luc TARDIF, and his council had agreed to let them use an unoccupied apartment in the basement and free of charge. (http://www.omi-qc-on.com/ )
