This record can be found as images 117/166 and 118/166 in the Acadia French Catholic Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1670-1946 on Ancestry.com in the records for St-Charles-les-Mines Mariages 1709-1748. The record appears on the front of folio 115 and the front of folio 116.
Since I’m not familiar with the offices of the Catholic Church in New France, I don’t quite understand the title of the priest, which I translated as “missionary of the parish of St. Charles of the Mines, and [?] vicar of the Monsignor of Sasmos, coadjutant of the diocese of Québec”.
