Leger-Jean-Baptiste-Noël Veyssière (1728-1800) was a Récollet priest who converted to Protestantism. A scandalous act indeed! Unable to speak English coherently, Veyssière began his ministry to a congregation largely composed of English-speaking soldiers. Hosts Julie Miller and François Roy tell a funny story on the site that used to be the first Protestant cemetery and the final resting place of this unusual man in Trois-Rivières, Quebec. You can see The Convert, and other short docs in our Scandal Makers series, on QAHN’s YouTube channel!
