Father Poissant

Father Joseph Poisson is a 58 year old priest who was born in Ontario Canada. After six years of University he felt called to be a priest but fought it for a time, feeling that his public speaking was not good enough. However, in 1990 Joseph Poisson submitted to God's will and entered the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP), which he believed at the time to be the most Traditional means within the Church for priestly training. He studied at the seminary in Bavaria Germany and finished up in the United States - finally being ordained by Bishop Timlin in 1996. As a priest, Father Poisson did missionary work in the early pioneer days of the Fraternity of Saint Peter throughout the United States. It was not until several years of priesthood that Father Poisson began to look more thoroughly into the truth concerning Archbishop Lefebvre. By 2013, being mostly convinced of Archbishop Lefebvre's position in contrast to that of the FSSP and responding to some signal graces by Our Lady, Father Poisson judged it time to leave the Fraternity. Unsure of what to do next, he went back to his widowed Mother's homestead to help her on the farm and prayed and studied in the meantime. In the Fall of 2017, on the Feast of the Miraculous Medal, Father Poisson was given the phone number of Father Joseph Pfeiffer by an old parishioner from Saint Catherine's Canada. Father Poisson called Father Pfeiffer and joined the Catholic Resistance at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Seminary and Church in Boston Kentucky soon after. Father Poisson helps teach at the seminary and helps run the missionary circuits throughout the U.S. and Canada - something familiar to him from his early days of being a priest.
