Owner description: Saint Joseph's Oratory of Mount-Royal is the largest shrine dedicated to Saint Joseph in the world. You must come visit our treasures like the votive chapel containing 10,000 lights and votive candles, our marvelous museum with a permanent exhibit of hundreds of creches from around the world, the Chapel of Brother Andre built in 1904, the heart of Brother Andre, our spectacular gardens containing the Way of Cross, the Crypt Church and the majestic Basilica.

This is a beautiful church to visit even if you are not catholic! I love the way they put the statutes to form the theme in the garden area.

I have been visiting since I was a child. I always bring any visitors to Montreal to the Oratory. A definate must on your visit. My favorite has always been the Brother Andre exibit. Frome the stations of the cross on the grounds to the over the top view of Montreal, it is a must for all.

The history of how Brother André made this his lifetime goal is impressive; the hall of candlelit prayer stations depicting all the manifestations of St. Joseph with the votive offerings of crutches, canes and braces is even more impressive.
Also allow time to climb the stairs and view the city from the balcony, to visit the chapel and the main church and in the summer to visit the gardens, Brother Andre's cabin and the Stations of the Cross.
