Pilgrimage to
Québec, Canada:

A Cultural, Religious, and Culinary Tour

Pilgrimage to Montréal & Québec City with the Travel Ministry of St. John in the Wilderness! Join us in exploring our rich, Christian heritage as a pilgrim in these historic cities.

 

On this trip, we will learn about the Roman Catholic and Anglican history of Québec as we visit churches and museums while eating delicious food each night. We will also learn about the First Nations peoples who were colonized by early settlers. We will enjoy guided visits to world-renowned landmarks such as the basilica of Notre Dame de Montréal, the basilica of Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré, and Montmorency Falls. We will also worship at the 1804 Anglican Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Québec City and gather daily in small group settings. Participants will need to physically be able to walk around historical sites and spend much of the day on their feet.

The price of $3,000 per person includes airfare, lodging, most meals, and most activities. To reserve your spot, we ask that you put down a deposit of $1,000 by April 23. The remaining $2,000 is due on June 7. Refunds are available until June 7.

 

Passports are required to enter Canada. It is strongly encouraged that you purchase travel insurance for this trip. Scholarships are available. You can find a rough itinerary at the bottom of this page.
