Where shall I take you next?? ..................


(Oratoire Saint-Joseph du Mont Royal)

A Roman Catholic basilica

on the northern slope of






The founder was Brother Andre, who devoted his entire life to the sick and handicapped, and who possessed a miraculous power of healing. Because of this ability, he was called the Miracle-Worker of Mount Royal. There is also a museum in the oratory, where you will see walking sticks discarded by those who felt themselves healed through Brother Andre's intercession.

  2. I was only in Montreal one day and we toured the Olympic site. If I ever go back, I'll have to take a look at Mont Royal. Looks amazing!

  11. Wow! What an incredible church! I went to a university in northern Vermont and we visited Montreal quite a bit. Unfortunately, in those days, we saw more pubs and festivals than anything else...

  16. Bonjour Anne,

    Wasen't this impressive? We thought too when we went last year. We found the whole place just mind boggling...
    I shall not forget the crypt,nor those abandonned sticks and crutches.

    BTW, I heard on Radio Canada's news that brother André will be canonized soon. So, the Oratory has been receiving lots of visitors this summer.
