Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount-Royal

A place of nature, culture and spirituality, Saint Joseph's Oratory welcomes you in the heart of the city. As a world-renowned pilgrimage site, the Oratory welcomes visitors to come discover the many facets of its heritage and an exceptional site. Founded in 1904, the world’s largest shrine dedicated to Saint Joseph is an exceptional pilgrimage site associated with Saint Brother André, its founder. The building’s distinctive architecture and, of course, its impressive dome give it a remarkable physical and symbolic stature in Montréal. Let yourself be inspired by the Way of the Cross gardens, the concerts, the Museum and its exhibitions.
