Welcome to Our Lady of the Cape Shrine!
You are in need to talk to « your Mother », to even see Her and offer Her your special intentions, this web-site will help you to do so; how much more when you come on pilgrimage to Our Lady of the Cape, Canada’s National Shrine to Our Blessed Mother. You will feel what I have experienced here as well as in Lourdes, Fatima, Medjugorje, Guadalupe… the Motherhood of the Queen of Peace.
The English Pastoral Team of the shrine is at your service and will welcome you here for days of blessings, of renewal of Faith, Hope and Love. By following a daily English program for groups, you shall be filled with graces to continue this pilgrimage of life with more strength and sanctified by the Lord. Here are Holy grounds: you will experience the beautiful gardens near the Saint Laurence River perfect for peace and contemplative prayer; the Masses and Adoration in the Old Shrine or the Modern Basilica for the greatest Blessing of all; devotions like the Divine Mercy, the Rosary, the Stations of the Cross and the Candlelight procession to meditate and celebrate the message and the life of Christ and of Mary! Come and you will be touched by the love and good care of Jesus and Mary.
Here, we are under Mary’s mantle day and night, and I am sure you will be, like I sing every evening at the end of the procession as I kneel at her altar: « …lost in your embrace! Ave Maria… »!
