Sous-catégorie de l'objet : Ceremonial Artefact
Discipline : History
Numéro d'accession : 1995.13.2
Date de fin de production : 1960
Description : Small brass tray with two ornately-engraved tab handles with cross motif. Engraved 'En Memoire de Maman Paul Paradis 1960' on reverse side. Small crease at edge of tray where word 'Maman' appears. Slightly tarnished.
Fonctions : The plate was used during the distribution of Holy Communion during the catholic mass. It would have been held by the alter server under the hands of the recipient to catch the Host should it fall while receiving the Eucharist. The Catholic Church in Mayo was located on the property donated by Livingston Wernecke, a devout follower. The tray itself was donated to the museum by Father Huijbers, but the record of who Maman Paul Paradis was, seems to have been lost during acquisition. The donor Father Huijbers was a well known priest who would often walk to Keno and its environs from Mayo, some sixty kilometres away to talk and bring the word of the God to the often isolated miners. Father Huijbers arrived in the Yukon after intense involvement with the European underground. He was born and raised in Limburg, Germany and took his vows in 1937. During the war he became involved in the Dutch resistance. In 1943, Father Huijbers was arrested by the Gestapo on suspicion of his involvement with the underground. He escaped imprisonment through a daring rescue executed by other members of the underground. After the escape he disguised himself and took on a new identity. He kept a list of 304 names in the sacristy at Christ the King Mission in Mayo of the people who didn't make it through to liberation. In 1948, Father Huijbers came to Mayo to assist Bishop Jean-Louis Coudert and stayed for more then 40 years. In 1982 he was rewarded with the "Silver Resistance Remembrance Cross" by the Dutch Consul General in Vancouver, in memory of the Queen of Holland.
