About The Most Reverend Bernard-Claude Panet

Bernard-Claude Panet was an archbishop and priest in Quebec. He was ordained in 1778. Education was one of Panet’s main concerns. He supported the Collège de Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pocatière and especially the Séminaire de Nicolet with both his influence and his money. He was instrumental in obtaining grants through an act of 1829 to build schools and support various colleges, academies, and convents in Lower Canada. In 1829 he also completed his predecessor’s work on the catechism, publishing the Grand catéchisme à l’usage du diocèse de Québec. His successor, Bishop Signay described Panet as follows: “tender piety, unfailing gentleness, compassionate charity towards others, constant zeal for the salvation of his flock.” He had two siblings who gained some fame in Canadian history; Jean-Antoine Panet who became a Lower Canada politician and Jacques Panet who also became a priest.
