St. Andre, pray for

Yannick was from Victoriaville, Quebec. 

He was a member of the 1st Battalion, Royal 22nd Regiment, based in CFB Valcartier in Quebec.

It was his first tour of duty in Afghanistan.  Yannick was looking forward to a leave in Thailand in two weeks. He had been in Afghanistan since December. His rotation was to end in July.

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Yannick Scherrer is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
