Itinerary

Day 1, Saturday, May 30: Arrive in Montreal, Canada

Make you way to your local airport to board your flight(s) to Montreal International Airport. Arrive in Montreal, the second largest French speaking city in the world. Upon your arrival you will be greeted by your tour escort and driver, and then transferred to your hotel. Enjoy free time before celebrating Mass and dinner. Overnight in Montreal.

Day 2, Sunday, May 31: Montreal

The morning begins with a continental breakfast at your hotel. We will drive to the top of Mount Royal for a spectacular panorama view of the city of Montreal. Your day will include a visit at St. Joseph's Oratory, the world's largest shrine dedicated to St Joseph; which was founded by St. Brother Andre in 1904 as a modest chapel. Annually, this pilgrimage center receives over two million visitors who come to meditate and pray in this peace-filled setting. St. Joseph's Oratory grew from a small chapel on beautiful Mount Royal to the premier Shrine of today. The Basilica's dome reaches 97 meters and is second only in height to St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. The primitive chapel, votive chapel, crypt and Basilica presents a variety of architectural styles as the construction began in 1904 and finished in 1966 with a number of architects over the decades. During our tour we will visit the reliquary where the relics of St. Brother Andre are displayed and view the two great pipe organs along with the carillon of 56 bronze bells that are played often throughout the week. We will celebrate Mass and you may participate in the Way of the Cross on the mountainside before we continue our journey. Next, we will visit the seat of the Archdiocese of Montreal, the Basilica Marie Reine du Monde (Mary, Queen of the World Cathedral), the third largest church in Montreal after St. Joseph's Oratory and the Basilica of Sainte Anne de Beaupre. This Basilica was visited in 1951 by Monsignor Giovanni Battista Montini, the future Pope Paul VI and in August of 1969 Cardinal Karol Wojtyla, the future Pope John Paul II visited. He returned in 1984 as the first pope to visit Canada. Our next stop will be the 350 year old Notre Dame de Bon Secours Chapel and Marquerite Bouygeoys Museum. The chapel built in 1771 over the site of the original stone chapel was often visited by sailors to pray before they were shipped out for duty. The story of Marguerite Bourgeoy's exceptional life as a woman of action along with the early settlers who built Montreal is beautifully presented as we visit the museum named after her. The tower offers a spectacular view of Old Montreal and the Old Port. This evening relax with dinner on your own and stroll through the city. Overnight in Montreal.

Day 3, Monday, June 1: Montreal - Our Lady of the Cape Shrine

Wake to a continental breakfast at your hotel. Our day begins with a guided tour of Montreal. Visit the Notre Dame Basilica, which plays a significant part in Montreal's religious heritage. Constructed from 1824 to 1829; it dominates Old Montreal with its imposing size. The neo-gothic architecture and richness of its decoration inside and out - make it shine like a jewel in comparison to the modern buildings nearby. Special attention should be given to the magnificent pipe organ, the largest in North America and the French stained glass windows, modeled after Sainte Chapelle Cathedral in Paris, France. We will continue to the Shawinigan region to visit the Ozias Luduc Church. Ozias Luduc (1864-1955), a Canadian artist painted murals and masterpieces for more than 30 churches during his career. You may wish to enjoy a relaxing break with a musician here before we continue to the Pilgrim House at Our Lady of the Cape Shrine. This shrine is located in the majestic region of Mauricie and is Canada's National Shrine to Our Blessed Mother. Standing on the shore of the St. Lawrence River, Our Lady of the Cape Shrine welcomes pilgrims annually to pray at the oldest standing Canadian chapel built in 1714 or the large modern Basilica which was inaugurated in 1964. The Basilica is adorned with magnificent stained glass windows and a Casavant organ with 5425 pipes, one of the largest in Canada. With its beautiful gardens overlooking the river, the shrine reveals an oasis of greenery and inspires peace and tranquility. The atmosphere of this Shrine and surrounding landscape invites you to spend time in spiritual reflection. The Way of the Cross, Adoration, prayer walk and a torch-lit procession (weather permitting) will all be available to you while you relax in this serene setting. Dinner and Mass included, overnight at Pilgrim House.
