Fonds Fondation Lucien Ouellet

Pass on the values that are dear to us, even after passing away

On November 24, 2020, Abbot Lucien Ouellet, who had been the chaplain for the Sûreté du Québec, passed away at the age of 97. A native of Saint-Léon-le-Grand in Matapédia, he entered the Grand Séminaire in 1945, and was ordained a priest on June 12, 1949. He was the vicar at Saint-Odilon-de-Cranbourne, in the parish of Saint-Pierre and Saint-Paul in Baie-Saint-Paul, as well as at Sacré-Cœur-de-Jésus in Pointe-au-Pic, then in the parishes of Saint-Roch and Notre-Dame-de-Jacques-Cartier.

In 1963, he became the chaplain for the Institut de Technologie de Québec, and for the provincial police at the Quebec City prison for men and the Notre-Dame-de-la-Merci shelter, and in 1965, the chaplain for the Quebec City Fire Brigade. He was subsequently the chaplain for the provincial police force, the Sûreté du Québec, until his retirement.

Mr. Ouellet wished to leave something to the community through the creation of a philanthropic fund in his will. This type of planned gift allows a fund creator to leave their mark and pass on the values that are near and dear to them, without compromising their current financial status.

Abbot Lucien Ouellet has dedicated his life to help the disadvantaged people. Subsequent to his passing, the Fonds Fondation Lucien Ouellet has been created at the Foundation of Greater Montréal and will support organizations that were dear to him. Perpetuating the mission of his life.
