Pilgrimages in Nouvelle-France, to Notre-Dame de Québec's Holy Door and the sepulcher of St. Francis of Laval ...

porte sainte okAlthough the Holy Door is now sealed, it remains an object arousing devotion and prayer and, like in Compostello and other Holy Door destinations of the world, pilgrimages continue to be offered to visitors.

Register for pilgrimages here.
