We walked to St. Joseph’s Oratory after hiking up and down Mont Royal. It was a crisp fall day, so the couple mile hike was worth it. I recommend purchasing a visitor’s guide when you get up to the church. The $2 cost is well...More
We visited here as one of our number is related to Brother Andre, the originator of the oratory. As the oratory is uphill from the street level, it is good to know that there is a continuous shuttle bus up and down the hill in...More
This is a huge church with many floors, the church itself being on the main floor. There are beautiful stained glass windows, some of which would be considered traditional, with a few that are modern. Additional floors contain a museum and history about Andrew, who...More
Very modern church which covers several floors with 2 chapels inside also an area where there are large no’s of walking sticks and frames from people who have been cured. There are fantastic views of Montreal.
For Christians and any believers, it is a place with a feeling of spirituality to head out and pray. The construction offers an incredible view on the northern and american elements of Montreal. There is also cafeterias for general population to consume and rest.
The view is fantastic of the city.
Lots of stairs (there is a shuttle).
Like a lot of things in Montreal in summer they are under repair while the weather is good - so some of the full effect is lost outwardly.
Very imposing building...More
First of all, I love the idea that the property is open to public 24/7. And so are its gardens which are as serene as they are beautiful.There's so much to learn how this church started (from Brother Andre to the community).
Montreal was named for this hilly highland, where the tallest spot in the city overlooks its most extensive parkland. The greenspace of Parc du Mont-Royal is an outdoorsman's dream, with hiking trails and nature walks that cater to every season and level of athlete. In the winter, cross-country skiers, tobogganers, and ice skaters don their equipment by Beaver Lake and its pavilion, while the warmer months bring families and
competitors to the pitches of Jeanne-Mance Park for tennis, soccer, football, baseball, volleyball, or a dip in the community pool. A perfect spot for a stroll or a picnic, the forest foliage is dotted with sculpture art and offers views of some of Mont-Royal's oldest edifices, the towering St. Joseph's Oratory and the mausoleums of Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. Home to musical celebrations and twilight snowshoeing alike, visit here to walk, write, rest, think, or just be.
Yes there is elevator/lift/handicapped entrance if you park on top of the hill. However, I suggest you call visitor’s center at 514 733-8211 ext. 2793 to make sure it's not closed temporarily because of the ongoing... More
