Welcome to A.P.M.A.

The year 2007 marked the centenary of the death of Père Marie-Antoine de Lavaur (born Léon Clergue), Capuchin missionary. He passed away the 8th February 1907 at the grand age of 82. Even before his fortieth year he was nicknamed the “Saint of Toulouse”. The year 2020 is marked by the publication of Father Marie-Antoine decree on heroic virtues with the autorization of Pope Francis, preparing the way for beatification.

The Memorial Association of Père Marie-Antoine (APMA) was founded to organise the jubilee year, publicise his personage and promote the cause of his beatification.

The corporal remains of Père Marie-Antoine lie in the Chapel of the Capuchin Convent, which he founded in 1861, at 33 avenue Jean Rieux in Toulouse, nowadays the Carmelite Convent. His tomb is the subject of constant popular devotion and the Chapel is open from 8am until 9pm every day.

The cause for the beatification of this Servant of God was initiated in 1928 by Cardinal Saliège, archbishop of Toulouse and Monsigneur Cézerac, archbishop of Albi, Castres and Lavaur. The cause was re-opened in July 2008 after the intervention of Monsigneur Robert Le Gall, the current archbishop of Toulouse.
