Central to the many activities during the month of May - the celebration of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin - the patronal feast day of our diocese, May 31, is an opportunity to meet and to publicly express our communion as Church.

Continuing with the missionary call of the founders of Ville-Marie, Archbishop Lepine will be presiding at a solemn Mass during which the Ignace-Bourget Diocesan Merit Award will be handed out to recipients who are currently working in the diocese.
