Three Days of Prayer, Penance, Fraternal Charity and Many Graces

Marie Reine du Canada, a lay-led apostolate of St. Clement Parish, Ottawa, organizes the annual three-day 100 km pilgrimage on foot from Saint-Joseph-de-Lanoraie to Notre-Dame-du-Cap shrine at Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Que.
A pilgrimage is a journey made to a holy place or shrine for the sanctification of the pilgrim; with the purpose of venerating a saint or martyr associated with the site; to pray to God; to ask for supernatural aid; to give thanks for favours received; or to discharge a religious obligation. The arduous journey, offered joyfully to God, represents our spiritual pilgrimage to the Heavenly City.

Masses to prepare for the pilgrimage:

Mon. June 25, 7:30 pm
Mon. July 9, 7:30 pm
Mon. Aug. 13, 7:30 pm

All will take place at St. Clement Parish (Ste. Anne Church), Ottawa.

Mass is celebrated each day of the pilgrimage in the Extraordinary Form of the Latin Rite, the traditional liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church. The Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, has expressed the desire that the Tridentine Latin Mass according to the 1962 Missal of Blessed Pope John XIII should flourish and continue to enrich our spiritual lives, particularly among the young. Our chaplains are priests of the Fraternity of St. Peter (, canonically established by Pope John Paul II in 1988.

The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is celebrated in parish churches along the route -- in Berthierville, Yamachiche, and in the historic Small Shrine of Our Lady of the Cape at Cap de la Madeleine -- with the blessing of the Bishops of Joliette and of Trois-Rivieres, and the local parish priests.
Thank you for posting this! I would love to be able to make this pilgrigmage, hopefully I'll be able to get the time off from work.
Oh I'd love to this too, but I can't!  :'((

I'll spiritually be there!
Thanks for posting this.  I'm interested in going but not sure if it will work out.  My daughter is expecting a baby in August and I'll be helping her out for a while after the birth.
Very nice.  I haven't been to the Cape since I was a kid.  God bless them.  The Michael Journal has a good article about the historical background, the miracle of the ice bridge and more about Our Lady of the Cape here that I'm sure you'll enjoy.
Hmmm. Does it require a passport to get across the border?
We need a passport to get into the States now Jen.  I'm not sure if you would need one to come to Canada but you'd probably need it to get back home.  I don't think it takes very long to get a passport though.

(make a smiley for this!)
I have one... it's just a matter of locating it, haha. I've been to Canada before, but I cannot recall wether they asked for my passport coming back or not. Probably. Either way, I need to get a new one or find my old one. I'd like to go on this, work schedule permitting.
