If Wauchope and other communities in southeastern Saskatchewan have residents of Francophone origin, it is partly due to the efforts of colonizing missionary, Monsignor Jean-Isidore Gaire.

Born in Alsace in 1853, Jean-Isidore Gaire settled in Canada in 1888. He first went to Manitoba and later settled in Wauchope. In the meantime, the missionary made many trips back to Europe to persuade people to settle in Western Canada, something he succeeded quite well in doing as many families followed him.

In 1901, he was appointed priest of the parish of Saint-François Régis of Wauchope. At the time of his death in 1925, he had worked for more than 37 years as a colonizing missionary.

Si Wauchope et les communautés du Sud-Est de la Saskatchewan comptent des résidents d’origine francophone, c’est un peu grâce aux efforts d’un missionnaire colonisateur, Monseigneur Jean-Isidore Gaire.

Né en Alsace en 1853, Jean-Isidore Gaire s’installe au Canada en 1888. Il se rendra d’abord au Manitoba et plus tard il s’établiera à Wauchope. Entre temps, le missionnaire fait de nombreux voyages en Europe afin de convaincre les gens de s’établir dans l’ouest canadien, un mandat qu’il réussit assez bien car bon nombre de familles le suivront.

En 1901 il est nommé curé de la paroisse Saint-François Régis de Wauchope. À sa mort, en 1925, il avait accumulé plus de 37 ans de travail comme missionnaire colonisateur.
