Notre-Dame de Québec Basilica-Cathedral

Québec , QC
Information about the event
The Notre-Dame de Québec Basilica-Cathedral was the first cathedral built in North America, making Notre-Dame de Québec the first Catholic parish founded north of the Spanish colonies.
The 350th anniversary celebrations will honour different aspects of our society: faith, history, family, heritage, culture, and lasting legacies for future generations.
In addition to the many organized activities surrounding its 350th jubilee, Notre-Dame de Québec will be honoured with the first Holy Door outside of Europe. People of goodwill are invited to make a pilgrimage in the historic footsteps of our ancestors and walk through the Holy Door.
The Québec City Area has more of the province’s classified religious heritage than anywhere else. An incredible wealth of religious diversity can be felt in more than 130 churches, 20 conventual chapels, 2 cathedrals and 2 basilicas, all of which bear witness to the many origins that colonized the region.
