DAY 4: QUEBEC CITY/MONTREAL

After breakfast we board our motor coach and drive to Montreal where we will go to St. Joseph's Oratory for Mass. St. Joseph's Oratory is a great basilica with a giant copper dome built in honor of St. Joseph, patron saint of Canada. The massive edifice, high on the slopes of Mount Royale in Quebec, belies its simple origins as the dream of a humble lay Brother André. Pilgrims still come from all over North America to pray for healing at the shrine of Fr. André, who was canonized a saint in 2010. Continue to the Olympic Park to view Montreal's skyline. Visit the amazing “Biodome” which creates some of the most beautiful ecosystems of the Americas. We will enjoy dinner before retiring to our hotel. (B, D)
