Pictured are the Boudreau brothers of Arichat.

In 1812 Bishop Plessis assumed responsibility for the Parish of Arichat. He wrote that the people of the area depended primarily on the seafaring trade and the industries associated with it. In fact, he noted 60 vessels had been built there in the previous year. There was a feeling of prosperity and this expressed itself in the homes and dress of the people.

Father Gaulin succeeded Fr. Lejamtel in 1819. His parish, besides Arichat, included St. Peter’s, L’Ardoise, Grandique, D’Escousse, and River Bourgeois.

This allowed the priest to spend one week twice per year at each mission. He considered this unacceptable and complained to the bishop but to no avail and in 1822 he was replaced by Father Hyacinthe Hudon.
