Events: Mary Queen of Canada pilgrimage - September 2012


The Marie Reine du Canada (Mary Queen of Canada) Pilgrimage to the Sanctuaire Notre-Dame-du-Cap (Shrine of Our Lady of the Cape) in Quebec is one of the foremost traditional Catholic pilgrimage in all of North America: it will happen this year on September 1-3.

Mass is celebrated each day of the pilgrimage in the Extraordinary Form of the Latin Rite, the traditional liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church.  Our chaplains are priests of the Fraternity of St. Peter ... . Two priests are normally available to hear confessions in French and English, throughout the pilgrimage, en route, in camp or before mass.

This is such a beautiful pilgrimage - Our Blessed Lady with Sacred liturguical Tradition conducted by some of Her favourite sons. May it bear much fruit.

It's all New France, same French Jesuit Martyrs, same indian tribes. Just a dug out canoe ride across the river, both great pilgrimages though Cape du Madeleine does have the Ice bridge and our Lady who opened her eyes.

You can also get a privately guided tour of Blessed Father Frederic’s tomb (he's incorrupt) and there is a museum in the Franciscan Church in Trois Rivieres (the town right next to the shrine). You have to arrange a private tour though as it's not always open. It's am amazing story but so many people don't know anything about it. There is a cause for his canonization but it's taking a long time.

For a summary of the miracles which took place at Notre Dame du Cap shrine in Quebec, here is an article worth reading:
