The site is so beautiful and peaceful. Attended Saturday evening outdoor mass. Great to learn of the history. There is a covered area to eat a picnic lunch or dinner.

A wonderful place to sit, pray, and contemplate. I'm a regular during the summer months. If you are planning a pilgrimage, add the sanctuary to your bucket list. Peace and quiet are in abundance.Masses are offered in French mostly but there are also English masses.

Like a mini cathedral set in the woods, located at the base of Mount Rigaud. Stopped by on the way down after a trek up the mountain. A great place to sit quietly and reflect.
