  • This church is beautiful inside, but the best part is the secret garden on the side - an oasis in the middle of downtown Montreal’s hustle and bustle. A great place to sit, listen to the fountain, read a book, eat lunch and relax! Thank you for making this treasure available to the community !
  • Homelies come and go and only some stick and have an influence on our every day life. It seems that at this church, most of them create a lasting memory and generate positive actions from its community. The social tissue that is knitted between these walls is quite remarkable and touching.
