A harp concert, given by Juliette Duguay, will be presented at the Saint-Antoine-de-Padoue Co-Cathedral in Longueuil on Sunday, September 11 at 2:00 p.m. Visitors will also have access to the museum on Friday and Sunday, September 9 and 11.

Also in Longueuil, the Centre Marie-Rose presents two outdoor routes on its heritage site, on Sunday, September 11, starting at 1:00 pm. One is in the form of a silent pilgrimage that links the heritage site of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) to the co-cathedral. The second route is historical in nature. With the help of guides, visitors will discover the history of the site through anecdotes and specific information about the 18th and 19th century buildings and the life of the teaching religious congregation.

Two outdoor tours are offered by the Marie-Rose Center as part of the Religious Heritage Days.

Please feel free to inquire directly with each participant for more information.

Les lignes et couleurs forment une image moderne à laquelle l’eau confère un caractère dynamique et vivant. La croix s’intègre aux flots au même titre que les sanctuaires sont partie intégrante des rives du Saint-Laurent.
La croix, solide, identifie les sanctuaires et rappelle les premières croix de bois plantées en Amérique, témoins d’une histoire qui continue de s’écrire.
Les flots entourent la croix d’une façon telle qu’ils la rendent lumineuse et dominante tout en symbolisant le caractère spirituel des lieux.

Las líneas y los colores forman una imagen moderna a la que el agua le confiere un carácter dinámico y vivo. La cruz se integra al río de la misma manera que los santuarios forman parte de las orillas del Saint-Laurent.
La cruz, sólida, se identifica con los santuarios y nos recuerda las primeras cruces de madera plantadas en América, testigos de una historia que se sigue escribiendo.
El agua rodea la cruz de tal manera que la vuelve luminosa y dominante al mismo tiempo que simboliza el carácter espiritual del lugar.
