Fr. Marcel writes:-
His late Eminence, Bishop Gabriel (Saliby) Metropolitan of the diocese gave his blessings for us, on the 22th of November 2005, to found the parish in the city of Nice in the South of France. The parish is dedicated to Saint Ignatios the God Bearer.
The first celebration took place on the 19th of November 2006, practically one year after the blessing, witch allowed us to go into the administration paper work in order to establish the cultuelle* association. Then, we began to celebrate in a little church dedicated to Sainte Marguerite (Marina), an Antiochian martyr of the third century ! Glory to God our Savour.
