St. Marguerite d'Youville - Pilgrimage to Varennes

Saturday, August 27, 2022

All are invited to meet Canada's first native born saint, Sr. Marguerite d'Youville, born in Varennes, Quebec, in 1701 and canonized in 1990.
The tomb of the founder of the Order of Sisters of charity of Montréal (1737), also known as the Grey Nuns, may be found inside Sainte-Anne-de-Varennes Basilica.
On arriving we will attend a mass inside the basilica and thereafter, be given a guided tour, including the sacristy.
Our guide will then accompany us to the Saint Marguerite d'Youville museum, situated next to the basilica.
