Tour of National Shrine

Father Wedner Bérard o.m.i. and the statue of the Virgin Pilgrim Our Lady of the Cape each year make promotion tours in Canada, the United States and elsewhere in the world to make knowned the five national Shrines of Quebec: the St-Joseph’s Oratory,  the Ermitage Saint-Antoine de Lac-Bouchettethe Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré Shrine, the Basilica-Cathedral Our Lady of Quebec and especially the Shrine of Our Lady of the Cape Shrine, its home port.

They will visit the Haitian, Chaldean, Italian, African, Filipino, Spanish-speaking, Ontarian, Acadian communities, etc. This spring, from april to mid-june, they are on the roads of Canada. In fact, the missionary and head of promotion at the SNDC, travels by car to the peripheries. From East to West, he travelled the country’s roads. A tour that targets about thirty parishes and multicultural communities.

The people visited learn more about the history of the national shrines, especially of Our Lady of the Cape. Father Wedner Bérard o.m.i. invites pilgrims, religious tourists and seekers of meaning to make a pilgrimage to one of these holy places. It also offers them to participate in the Assumption Festival and the summer activities of the Shrine of Notre-Dame-du-Cap. Tours that are essential to the survival of the NDC Shrine, and that give the taste to take back the pilgrim sticks for strong moments of spirituality and faith and communion with our colorful humanity, especially after Covid19.

The Shrine of Our Lady of the Cape Shrine attracts nearly 400,000 visitors each year, many of whom come from outside Quebec, the United States and Canada.
