The best place on earth, what I remember from the year 1996 when I left Montreal to California . Still in my mind the picture of St. joseph church.
I use to climb the stairs on my knees every sunday and sometimes during the week to pray for my sister who was sick to see her children that she didn't see them for many years.
St Joseph answer our prayers and I'm still praying for him.
Thank you so much St Joseph!!!!

We are happy to hear that you have kept confidence in Saint Joseph as an intercessor. But, think of this: now you can add Saint André Bessette to pair with Saint Joseph. Saint Joseph will always be willing to pray for us alongside the one who was his great friend on earth, Brother André.

The oratoire is absolutely stunning. If you're lucky you'll be there when the organ is being played. Totally breath taking. Amazing view of the city and a really beautiful church.

What a great place to visit and enjoyed the Oratory very much. Certainly not to miss and easily accessible by public transport.

Apart from wonderful architecture, and the play of light on stained glass widows, the oratory is heaven for lovers of organ music. Watch for scheduled organ concerts or drop in on Sundays at 3 p.m. If you are lucky you might get to sit with the organist in his loft. We've taken a number of visitors for this and they were amazed - the best earth shuddering Montreal experience, they said.
