TThe family of the late Fr. Floyd Gallant wishes to express sincere thank you to all of St. Dunstan's, Bishop Grecco, Pastors, staff and parishioners for the many expressions of sympathy and love extended to us during Floyd's illness and passing. To the choir and cantors who so beautifully sang during his funeral, to the Knights of Columbus and the parish for your hospitality during the day of the Wake and for the reception following the funeral. We will always hold these precious memories close to us.

Centenary!

CThe church building, which was to become the first cathedral of the newly-formed Diocese of Charlottetown in 1829, was erected on the site of the present church in 1816. It was replaced by a larger wooden building in 1843, which itself gave way to a magnificent stone structure, destroyed by fire in 1913. This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the dedication of our present St. Dunstan's Basilica, the fourth cathedral of the Diocese of Charlottetown. Plans are getting underway to celebrate this milestone event. Stay tuned!
