Saint Joseph’s Oratory is the largest church in Canada. It is one of the major tourist attractions here in the island of Montreal. This church is not only a place to attend a mass but also to visit its art museum and gardens located around the church.
Today I want to show you around the church.
You will be greeted by this monument at the gates of the church.
I personally prefer this area to offer prayers whenever I visit here in Saint Joseph.
Another area to visit is the tomb of Brother Andre Bessette which is located just below the oratory’s main chapel. He was the one who founded the building of this church. His heart, which was stolen in 1973 and was recovered in December of 1974 is preserved in a reliquary located at the same oratory. (Source: Wikipedia)
Below is the reliquary where Brother Andre’s heart is placed.
Hope you guys enjoyed this little tour.!
Happy Thanksgiving to my neighbors in the US! Hope you guys have a good one.
