STREETS OF MONTRÉAL
A time to witness to the love of Christ. The pilgrimage through the streets of Montreal becomes a commemoration of the Lord’s entrance into Jerusalem. We are Christ’s disciples who want to transform today’s world. We walk in the streets to witness our faith and hope in Jesus Christ.
SAINT PATRICK'S BASILICA | 460 BOUL. RENÉ-LEVESQUE O. | MONTRÉAL, QC H2Z 1A7
MARY, QUEEN OF THE WORLD CATHEDRAL | 1085, RUE DE LA CATHÉDRALE | MONTRÉAL, QC
A solemn moment in commemoration of the Passion of Christ. It is a calm and sombre time, as we re-live the painful memory of the Lord’s final hour, and because His love for us is very precious. It is through His Passion that we can celebrate His Resurrection and our own salvation.
