Longtime Member and Author Fr. Labonte

Fr. d'Youville Labonte, a priest with the order of The White Fathers of Africa, has been a lifetime member of MFGS. He has authored many books that we use at the library. He will be remembered as a wonderful human being and a great friend to all the members of our Society.

News has been received here of the passing of Father Youville LaBonte who passed away on 8 November 2011 at the age of 86. Father was a native of Lewiston and was ordained for the Missionaries of Africa. After spending 20 years in Zambia, Africa he returned to the States and came to Maine to assist in parishes and then to care for his sick parents. With the permission of the community he served in various parishes in Maine, St. Martin of Tours in Millinocket, St. Hyacinth in Westbrook and Sacred Heart in Auburn where he continued to live in his retirement until moving to the Missionaries of Africa Residence in St. Petersburg, FL. He will be missed by all who knew him. Was a wonderful man!

I am seeking marriage repertoires of St Joseph and St Andre of Biddeford and St Ignatius and Holy Family of Sanford. Are they still available?

I have most of Father Labonte's books that pertain to Lewiston, and Auburn area. They are invaluable in my research. Hi to cousin Lu.
