Very beautiful. Liked a little more than Notre Dame Basilica. Though I'm not Catholic, I stayed for noon mass. It was in English.

I went ecpecting Mass on Sunday to be a little bit of a "gong show" however I was pleasantly surprised. The Mass was wonderful and the tourists were respectful an d not a distraction. Wonderful building with lots of history.

Montreal is a city of churches. As you travel through the older parts of the city you will find the landscape crowded with steeples. The Irish were a vital part of the establishment of Montreal and construction of St.Patrick's Basilica was started in 1843 with it's first mass being celebrated March 17th 1847, St. Patrick's Day. Over the years ti has been built into "one of the purest and grandest specimens of the 14th and 15th century gothic style in Canada". They have always been blessed with a great choir and soloists, and this can be caught at Sunday's 11 a.m. mass. . There is also a weekday 12.10 p.m. mass. Enjoy

I'm not Catholic, matter of fact I am not religious of any kind, but we loved this place. Lucky enough to join in on the tour, the presenter was enthusiastic and had a great sense of humour.
Overall this building is amazing, I have been in Catholic Churches in Vienna and Warsaw, Prague and this one in Montreal is right up there with the best Europe has to offer. Really amazing...

On the border between Chinatown and Old Montreal this beautiful church is worth stopping in. The altar backdrop is particularly interesting and the church as a whole is very pretty. Nice quiet place to meditate and escape the crowds. No admission charge
