Nathalie Dumas - L’Oratoire Saint-Joseph du Mont-Royal

Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount-Royal

A place of nature, culture and spirituality, Saint Joseph's Oratory welcomes you to the heart of the city. Founded in 1904, the most important shrine dedicated to Saint Joseph is an exceptional place of pilgrimage associated with Saint Brother André, its founder. The distinctive architecture of this building and especially its imposing dome, give it a remarkable physical and symbolic presence in Montreal. Be inspired by the rich heritage, works of art and exhibitions, organ and carillon concerts and the Garden of the Way of the Cross.
