Return to news

On the occasion of the Religious Heritage Days, the Marie-Rose Center offers two outdoor tours to visitors on Sunday, September 11 between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m.

Visitors will be able to discover the particularities of the heritage site of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) with its buildings dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. The guides will welcome them at the various stations with facts, sometimes unpublished, and anecdotes to enhance the presentation. A great way to better learn about a part of Longueuil’s history and heritage and to understand the evolution of the religious congregation that has contributed to the education of thousands of young people.

On the same site, a spiritual journey is proposed in the form of a silent pilgrimage. With the help of a small guide, participants will be able to immerse themselves in the site at their own pace and stop at various points of interest. This route leads to the Marie-Rose Chapel, located in the right transept of the Saint-Antoine-de-Padoue Co-Cathedral.

The presentation of these two outdoor routes is open to all. Come to the SNJM heritage site, located at 80 Saint-Charles Street East in Longueuil, on Sunday, September 11, between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. It is free of charge. Please note that the event will be cancelled in case of rain.
