L'Oratoire Saint-Joseph du Mont-Royal
A place of spirituality, nature and culture, Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal welcomes pilgrims and visitors in a spirit of openness and compassion and offers them a place of prayer and gathering in the heart of the city. Every year, the Catholic sanctuary founded by Saint Brother André greets some two million people.
Its vast green spaces and magnificent gardens make it an exceptional natural site on Mount Royal. Recognized as a national historic site of Canada, the Oratory offers magnificent works of art, especially in its gardens. Its museum houses a rich and eclectic collection of more than 30,000 works of the religious, historical and artistic heritage of Québec and elsewhere. Creation and cultural diffusion shine thanks to the shrine’s exhibitions and numerous musical series.
