Below you can find information on upcoming events of regional or national interest. Please note that, while we strive to include everything we can on this list, it is not exhaustive and does not include events particular to a parish or small geographical region. For retreats, camps and other events in your local area, the best place to look is your parish bulletin.
Pilgrimage to Notre-Dame-du-Cap
September 2–4, 2023
The Marie Reine du Canada pilgrimage to Canada’s national Marian shrine, Our Lady of the Cape,will take place September 2-4 . A lay-led endeavour based out of the FSSP’s apostolate in Ottawa, St. Clement Parish, the pilgrimage is an annual three-day 100 KM (62 miles) trek in the footsteps of the North American Martyrs along Quebec’s north shore of the St. Lawrence River. Much like the Pentecost pilgrimage to Chartres, pilgrims walk in chapters and carry banners while singing and praying, chaplains provide confession and spiritual direction en route, and all participants camp in tents. Priests celebrate the traditional Mass each day of the pilgrimage in parish churches along the route: in Berthierville, Yamachiche, and in the historic old shrine at Notre Dame du Cap, where upon the high altar stands the miraculous statue of Our Lady of the Cape, which opened its eyes on June 22, 1888, in the presence of (later Blessed) Fr. Frederic Janssoone, Fr. Luc Desilets, and a layman, Pierre Lacroix. Any questions about the pilgrimage can be directed to email@example.com.
