This historic and holy site includes the famous Shrine Church, the Martyrs’ Hall and Education Centre, and 75 pleasantly landscaped acres which invite you into prayer and tranquility. Within the Church are the relics of the Martyrs St. Jean de Brébeuf, St. Gabriel Lalemant, and St. Charles Garnier, while the grounds are home to beautiful walkways, monuments, and altars.

The Martyrs’ Shrine welcomes over a hundred thousand people every year and continues to spread the word, history, and values of the Jesuits’ Mission. Offering insightful tours, engaging activities, and enjoyable pilgrimages, it is no wonder why the Martyrs’ Shrine is world-renowned!
