Restoration work - Phase 1

From June to December 2020, restoration work on the façade of Notre-Dame Basilica will be carried out by Maçonnerie Rainville et frères, under the supervision of DFS Architecture & Design.

The stones of the Basilica are 190 years old and those of the towers, nearly 177 years old. The northwestern exposure of the main façade, which does not receive enough sunlight to dry out quickly after bad weather, accelerates the aging process of the facing and the deterioration of the stones. Phase 1 of the work is therefore aimed at restoring the masonry of the facade.

This restoration work is made possible thanks to the financial support of the Conseil du patrimoine religieux du Québec.

Flight of bells

At the invitation of the Archbishop of Montréal, who wishes to send a message of hope to as many people as possible, Notre-Dame Basilica will join the churches of the city and ring its bells this Sunday for ten minutes from noon, as well as the following Sundays until Easter. It will also ring its big bumblebee on Good Friday, April 10, at 3:00 pm.

In this Lenten season, this initiative is a way of demonstrating our solidarity and fraternity with individuals and families, especially the most vulnerable, with the sick and their loved ones, as well as celebrating the dedication of the health personnel and all those who care for the safety and well-being of our city.

This "flight of bells" is intended as a symbol of the hope and solidarity of the Church towards society and the city, thinking of Montréal which, at one time, was nicknamed "the city of a hundred steeples".

May the sound of the bells remind us that God loves us, that Christ is alive and that he wants us to be LIVING!
