The Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal is a gathering place where the faithful receive the Word of the Lord from the Liturgy, the Eucharist and the celebration of the sacraments. The parish is responsible for the education of parishioners in the Catholic faith at all ages of their life. It also supports charities that focus on poverty reduction.
As a witness to the founding of Montréal and a national historic site, the basilica imparts and celebrates its history, as well as its architectural, religious and artistic heritage.
The basilica manages its activities in such a way as to maintain a financial balance and to fulfill its long-term obligations to ensure its development and sustainability. Its enthusiastic staff offers courteous and professional service.
