    The pastor of two rural Maine parishes — St. Rose of Lima in Jay and St. Joseph in Farmington — Father Paul Dumais was born and raised in Mattawaska, the northernmost town in the state. Located in the St. John River Valley near Canada, his community and town had been profoundly Catholic since the French Acadian settlers arrived, Father said.

    “The Daughters of Wisdom came in the early 20th century,” he said. “Public schools were built on the parish property and the towns were named after the parishes. … We had and still do offer release time from public schools in the middle of the school day to go to the parish for religious education.” When he attended grade school, he did not know anyone who was not Catholic, but since then, he said that the community profile has changed. Note: “The first public school opened in a building built by the parish so the Brothers of the Sacred Heart could come and teach.”
