Shrines of Quebec Pilgrimages


The Cathedrals, Churches and Chapels of Montreal and Quebec reveal an expression of the deep faith of the people and history of Quebec. We will visit the Basilica of St. Anne in Beaupre. St. Anne is the mother of Our Lady and the patron saint of Canada. The first chapel dedicated to her was built in 1658 and houses the miraculous statue of St. Anne. From the year the chapel was built, many miraculous healings have been reported. The pillars at the entrance to the Basilica are covered with crutches and canes from people who have experienced miraculous healings. In Quebec we will visit the Notre Dame du Cap. Located on the banks of St. Lawrence River, it is the largest Marian shrine in North America. The Basilica was built in 1720 and dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary. A miraculous bridge of ice enabled its construction, which is the first miracle attributed to the Basilica. During our pilgrimage of Canada we will also see the Notre Dame Basilica and St. Patrickís Basilica in Montreal. Our extensive pilgrimage will invite you to enter into the prayerful spirit of French Canada.

The Cyclorama is a 360 degree panorama depicting the crucifixition of Jesus and the countryside surrounding Jerusalem. A day trip to Grosse Ile is also included. Located in the St Lawrence River, this island is sacred to the memory of 6,000 Irish Famine exiles buried there. It is estimated about 500,000 Irish passed through this quarantine station between 1832 and 1937 on their way to Canada.
  • Cap de la Madeline
  • In Cap de la Madeline we will visit the Notre Dame du Cap. Located on the banks of St. Lawrence River, it is the largest Marian shrine in North America.

  • Montreal
  • During our time in Montreal we will visit the Shrine of St Joseph on Mount Royal. Built in 1904, Canada's largest church was founded by St. Bro. Andre and many miracles have been attributed to it. See his tomb, his accommodation and the original chapel. Visit also the Notre Dame Basilica dedicated to Our Lady the Blessed Virgin. St. Patrick's Basilica opened on St. Patricks Day in 1847. The basilica has historic links with the Irish in Canada as it served the needs of Irish immigrants who fled to Canada to escape the famine. We will also take in a panoramic tour of the city.
