O Father, Felician...

Item 15676  info
O Father, Felician... / Maine Historical Society

The priest and Evangeline are determined to find Gabriel and their people. Much of the poem takes place on her journey. Although the priest remains at a mission, I show Father Felician in several scenes to remind the viewer that the Acadians have a strong connection with their Catholic faith. Here, Evangeline just misses Gabriel, who takes the other side of the river in his canoe. He is a voyager.
