Father Edouard Del Guidice

DEL GUIDICE, Father Edouard - Priest of the Diocese Timmins 1922 - 2018 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Father Edward Del Guidice, priest of the Diocese of Timmins from 1950 to 2018. Father Édouard Del Guidice was born in St-Eugène-de-Guigues, Quebec, on September 9, 1922, the son of a family of eight children, to the marriage of the late Nunzio Del Guidice and the late Therese Bédard. He was confirmed at St. Anthony of Padua Church in Timmins. He completed high school and his classical studies (1942 - 1946) at the Sacred Heart College in Sudbury. He studied at the Saint Paul University Seminary in Ottawa (1946 - 1950). Ordained priest on June 3, 1950, in the Saint-Antoine-de-Padoue Church of Timmins, Father Del Guidice was appointed vicar of the same parish and in September 1950 he became vicar at the parish of Malartic. His years of ministry led him to serve in parishes: Saint - Antoine - de -Padoue in Timmins, Saint - Martin -de - Tours of Malartic, Saint - Martyrs - Canadians of Ansonville, Most Holy Trinity of Englehart, Saint - Étienne of Charlton, Saint - Jean - l'Évangeliste of McWatters, Sacred Heart of New Liskeard, Notre - Dame - du - Bon - Secours of Belle Vallée and St. Anne of Iroquois Falls. He served as chaplain to several groups and was a member of diocesan committees such as: the college of consultors, the episcopal council and ecumenism. A particular achievement of which he was very proud was the construction of the Most Holy Trinity Church of Englehart, a project carried out in collaboration with the laity of the parish and followed by the construction of the school of the same place, the same year with the same team. Father Edouard Del Guidice is known for his availability and commitment to the service of the Church he loves and all the people he has met in his ministry. In addition to the diocesan family, he leaves to mourn many friends as well as nephews and nieces. He was predeceased by his brothers Nunzio, Lucien, Antonio, Joseph and his sisters Sr. Thérèse of the Community of the Sisters of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin, Marguerite Pulice, Rita Pesdirz.

Great support to my mother who lost her husband at very young age. I travelled with Father Delguidice in Quebec. I was 14... he let me drive old panel truck on back roads while he read his daily prayers. I miss him a lot.
rest in peace

To Marlene and family, I remember your uncle at family gatherings and how he loved being among the family, the laughter, the music and the food. He lived his priesthood with joy, dedication and with his unique smile. Good memories and thoughts to you all.
