St. Joseph Centre in St. Cesaire is a beautiful and historic building with a magnificent Main Chapel and Altar and thanks to the generosity of donors, has been largely restored and renovated to provide for the needs of the District House of the Society of St. Pius X in Canada.

A building of this size requires continuous renovation and maintenance.  St. Joseph Centre urgently needs your support in properly renovating and maintaining it.

We must stay on top of renovations and maintenance to ensure that we are good stewards properly caring for the District House in the most cost-effective ways.

Currently, we are building a future school building as one of our major renovation projects that should open in the Fall of 2023.  We also would like to add a passerelle between the buildings.  The exterior windows were recently scraped and painted but many of them will need replaced in two to three years.  The roof on the garage will need replaced within a couple of years and there are some masonry issues that need to be fixed.  We'd like to re-asphalt the parking lot and re-add an elevator eventually as well.

Donations to this fund help us to do this major maintenance and renovation to St. Joseph Centre, which is the District House and Administrative Centre, Priory for the Priests, Cloister for the Oblate Sisters, Mass Centre, Retreat House and future school.";

The Society of St. Pius X was founded on the Feast of All Saints on November 1st, 1970 by His Excellency, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre of happy memory.

The primary goal of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X is the formation and sanctification of good priests, for, the Church cannot be renewed without holy priests.

Helping St. Joseph's Scholarships through donations is not only an act of charity to individual families, but even more so to the common good of our traditional schools and all families of the Tradition.
