onecrazycanadian: Hi,

If not already disabled I have disabled this cache because it has been reported as possibly missing or being in need of maintenance as indicated by its low health score. By now you should have received an email from HQ indicating that your cache may need some attention. I am following up on those emails to see if the required maintenance has been completed. At this time I am asking that you, as the cache owner, make a physical check on the cache and leave a note on the cache page in regards to its status.

If you have completed the needed maintenance feel free to post an owner maintenance log and enable the cache again. I will check back in a few weeks and if there has been no response to the needed maintenance and I have not heard anything from you, I will be archiving the cache at that time.

For tips about how to perform maintenance and to learn why Geocaching HQ sends occasional geocache maintenance reminders, please see this Help Center article,

Born in Arthabaska, Quebec, in 1868, Abbé Louis-Pierre Gravel arrived in Saskatchewan in 1907 as a settlement agent for the Canadian government. His main mission was to repatriate Franco-Americans. He was undoubtedly an ideal candidate for this task, having served in New York from 1892 to 1901 in a parish founded by French Canadians.

He moved to Moose Jaw because the Dominion Lands Office was located there. In doing so, he became the town's first resident priest.

Abbé Gravel had a great impact on Francophone immigration to southern Saskatchewan. He founded many parishes, such as Gravelbourg, and brought more than ten thousand French-speaking settlers to the province.

Né à Arthabaska au Québec en 1868, l’abbé Louis-Pierre Gravel arrive en Saskatchewan en 1907 en tant qu’agent de colonisation pour le gouvernement canadien. Sa mission principale est de rapatrier au pays les Francos-Américains. Il était sans doute un candidat idéal pour ce mandat, ayant exercé son ministère à New York de 1892 à 1901 dans une paroisse fondée par des Canadiens-Français.

Il s’installe à Moose Jaw car le bureau des terres du Dominion s’y trouve. Il devient par le fait même le premier prêtre résident de la ville.

L’Abbé Gravel aura un grand impact sur l’immigration francophone dans le sud de la Saskatchewan. Il fondera de nombreuses paroisses, telle que Gravelbourg, et entraînera plus de dix mille colons francophones dans la province.
