Please pray for the repose of the soul of Dame Thérèse Blais who passed away on August 8, 2021, at age 89.

Therese spent much of her life in Portland, where she worked in the rectory of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and later served as a volunteer at Mercy Hospital.

Known by many in the Diocese of Portland, she was a woman with a kind and generous heart who made firends easily.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, August 25, at 10 a.m. at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 307 Congress Street in Portland.
