    • His Excellency Charles Leo Nelligan
      He was born near Tignish, P.E.I. on August 20, 1894. He attended school in Tignish prior to his attendance at Prince of Wales College and Normal School in Charlottetown. Prior to his religious service, he taught at Tignish Grammar School and later served as a musketry instructor during the first World War. After the war, he attended St. Dunstan's College and the Grand Seminary in Quebec City. In 1925, he was awarded his Doctor of Divinity degree, and in June of that same year, he was ordained as priest for the Archdiocese of Edmonton, Alberta. Over his years of service, Nelligan preformed duties in Edmonton, Alberta and Pembrooke, Ontario along with his years as professor at the University of Windsor, Ontario. Although he was an "Islander Away," he frequently would visit his native Tignish. His Excellency Bishop Charles Leo Nelligan died in London, Ontario in 1974, and he is interred in the Basilian plot at Heavenly Rest Cemetery, Windsor, Ontario.
