Lovely place. English mass

About as nice a church as one will find in Montreal or all of Canada. Well-appointed, and a very good downtown location so it is easy accessible during even a fairly short stay.

Claimed as a neo-gothic church, there are pluses and minuses with this basiica. The architecture is more modern for my liking but beautiful nonetheless. The stained glass is also too modern for my liking. However, the interior is just amazing. There are Western style icons all around and they are still a few blank spots for them to fill with...

Only walked outside but the church is beautiful. Nicely set within the city. The building looks like it is well maintained and the grounds are good. Not sure if there are tours but services are still held in a regular basis

This smaller basilica appears to be over-shadowed by the Notre-Dame Basilica but it is just a beautiful. It has lots of stained glass, ceiling paintings and statues. Wonderful church to visit, to pray at without the tour crowds you get at Notre-Dame.

We came here for mass and also to see this beautiful Gothic style building. It is close to the Metro so it is very accessible. The church is very open with side entrances and welcoming inside. We like the sectional pews which is perfect for families during the worship. The stained glass windows provide a colorful interior. A nice place... More

We had a few hours and decided to visit this nearby church. We entered and were offered a free tour, but decided to walk around on our own. After walking around a bit, decided to take the tour. Our guide was very knowledgable and explained the history of St Patrick's, and how this English speaking Basilica was developed and kept... More

This church is within walking distance of the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel, as well as others, and offers English speaking mass for catholics wishing to worship. We did attend an excellent service on a Sunday morning. The church is also very beautiful.

Gorgeous Church and beautiful inside and out. This is located in the heart of Montreal and totally worth stopping by even just for a picture or two. We loved the fact that it still looks so old and rustic and has a little flair about it.

I went to church on Sunday. All masses are in English and it is very beautiful. It is easy to get to and near a metro stop.

After a (essentially mandatory) visit to the Notre-Dame cathedral, walk for 10 minutes and visit St. Patrick's Basilica. A very different, but equally pleasant experience, of lighter colors, a different wood, different tradition - a Gothic church.

Staying in Quartier International

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier International
Designed to connect and beautify unused space, today the Quartier International is like a transversal piece of modern art. The distinctive design flair is most apparent at its focal point, the Palais des Congres, a convention center and retail space with a multi-colored glass exterior and an equally bold interior motif. Outdoors too, the Quartier is friendly towards public art exhibits along its stylish, plotted city squares, with extra-wide sidewalks meant to encourage long strolls and shaded benches available for absorbing the atmosphere. Fresh air and promenades characterize the area, from the foliage of Victoria Square to the fountain of Place Jean-Paul Riopelle, while the restaurants along Rue Saint-Antonie Ouest and Metro stops modeled in the Parisian style give off European glamour.
