The May 8 th event featured guest speaker Brian Skerry, an award-win- ning National Geographic Magazine photographer and Uxbridge resident who spe- cializes in marine wildlife and underwater photogra- phy. Since 2012, Skerry has panered with CLF on the N England Ocean Odys- sy."a five-year project to photograph marine wildlife in New England waters. The highlight of the evening was Skerry's presentation about his photographic experi- ences in underwater envi- ronments around the world and in New England. In his breathtaking photo presentation, entitled "Ocean Soul," Skerry shared his remarkable photographs of underwater environments around the world and in New England. His presentation included some of the only photos ever taken of Cashes Ledge, a unique and fragile underwater mountain range located 100 miles southeast of Portland in the Gulf of Maine. Cashes Ledge is cur- rently under threat of being opened to commercial fish- ing, and Skerry is working with CLF to photograph and permanently protect it.

BOX 135 BOSTON, MA 02113 Attn: Legal Notices Saint Remigius of Reims by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Saint Remigius was born in 437 at Cerny-en-Laonnois, near Laon, Picardy into a noble Galo- Roman family. He is believed to be the son of Emilius, Count of Laon and Celina. He studied at Reims and soon became so noted for his learning and holiness that, with the death of Bishop Benange of Reims, Remigius was or- dained and chosen his successor at twenty- two years of age. In 481 the young warrior Clovis became leader of the Frankish tribes in that region. Though he was a pagan, he knew and admired St. Remigius, and was married to a Chris- tian, St. Clotilde, but remained indifferent to Christianity. According to Saint Gregory of Tours, in his book, "A History of the Franks," it was at the Battle of Tolbac, when his army faced defeat by the Alemanii that Clovis prayed to 'the God of Clotilde and Remigius' and won a great victory. This answer to his prayers convinced him of the truth of the Christian Faith, and he asked St. Remigius to instruct him. Two years later he gathered all his chieftains in Reims to attend his baptism. Two of the king's sisters and three thou- sand of his lords and soldiers were baptized at the ceremony. This event is considered the birth of France as a Christian nation and a seminal event in European history. Even before he embraced ChristianitT, Clovis had showered benefits upon both the Bishop and Cathedral of Reims. He granted Remigius stretches of territory, which Remigius in turn established and endowed many churches. Saint Remigius, with papal consent, established bishop- rics at Tournai, Cambrai and Terouanne, where he ordained the first bishops. The authors of "Gallia Christiana" record numerous generous donations made to St. Remigius by members of the Frankish nobility, which he presented to the cathedral at Reims. In 517, Remigius held a Church assembly (synod) at which, after a heated discussion he converted a bishop of Arian heretical views. History records show that he wrote in 523 congratulating Pope Hormisdas upon his election. St. Medardus, Bishop of Noyon, was ordained by him in 530. In his old age St Remigius went blind, but miraculously recovered his sight. He passed away peacefully, after serv- ing the Divine Liturgy, on January 13, 533 at the age of 96, a remarkably old age for his time.
