Saint Joseph's Oratory

The magnificent Saint Joseph Oratory stands on the west slope of Mount Royal.

Inside the long corridor with votive altars on each side:

At the center of the corridor lies the statue of St Joseph. Behind is the tomb of Saint Andre Bessette or Saint Andre of Montreal, who was canonized in October 2010.

Prayers at the tomb of Brother Andre, who has been credited with miraculous healings.

The Crypt Church

After visiting the Crypt Church and Brother Andre's tomb, we took the escalator, that led us to a grand terrace overlooking the area.

Further up the escalator is the Basilica, with the Grand Organ that stood above the entrance.
