St Josephs Oratory Of Mount Royal - Review
With a perfect blend of nature, culture and spirituality, the St Josephs Oratory of Mount Royal in the heart of the city is the largest shrine built in 1904 by the Saint Brother Andre as an ode to Saint Joseph. Nestled on the northern sill slopes of Mount Royal, the oratory is surrounded by rich greenery, spacious lawns, flower beds, towering trees and landscaped gardens. The Eucharist and Morning Mass Worship in French language take place at 8.30 am from Monday till Saturday. The Garden of the way of The Cross, the natural reserve and the Iris “Frere Andre” are the special nature attractions. The cultural marvels of St Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal are the musicians of the Petits Chanteurs du Mont-Royal who play the Paccard Carillion, Casavant Organ and the Beckerath Organ. The museum showcases the religious and artistic heritage of Quebec and beyond.

St Josephs Oratory Of Mount Royal, Montreal Reviews
It was beautiful. Some people were going up the middle stairs on their knees and praying as they went. I have never done that and I was unsure of the reason, but it might be beneficial to research this if this interests you. I sure there is a beautiful drive behind this and maybe even a specific prayer that is encouraged. I loved going up the stairs, admiring the landscape, and then being greeted by the warmth of the church. It was welcoming and you felt invited to stay and spend time in reflection and prayer if you wished. The architecture and art was slightly different than I had experienced before I found it refreshing to experience this churches character and uniqueness. The church itself and the prayer chapel is free to go in, but they do ask for donations and there museum does cost, but I am unsure how much. I am happy we went.
I normally go here during the night with friends. It is a great place to just hang out and talk. The view of Montreal is very pretty from up there. I love how quiet it is as well. Something like Mount Royal can be nice but it is also way more crowded so that is why I like to go to the oratory more.
Visited this wonderful church in Montreal back in May of this year and I truly miss this place very much. I had a blessing from Saint Andre and my blessings came true after getting a job offer in Ottawa. You can feel the love, spirit and the presence of God in St. Joseph Oratory. Thank You Saint Andre for your blessings, love, and answering my prayers.
Impressive facility. The steps up are a prayerful experience (would recommend going up on your knees). The lower crypt church is beautiful with incredible stained glass windows. There are hundreds of candles burning before the many titles and patronages of St. Joseph, as well has the simple resting place of St. Andre. The upper church is quite different, but impressive in its size. It has a different feel, much darker and somber. The grounds are beautiful as well. My wife and I walked and prayed the Stations. Ample parking, but may be a hike. Be ware of buses too.
This beautiful church was simple breathtaking and very peaceful. As there are many places around the grounds to visit I spent quiet a few hours her. Walking through the main parts of the church I was overcome with a sense of peace as most people respected the “be quiet” signs.
