Father Matthew Baugh, SJ

Saint Louis University

Embark on a spiritual journey tracing the early Catholic presence in the New World, initiated by 16th-century French settlers who crafted some of North America’s most exquisite churches and Catholic sanctuaries.

Our pilgrimage will take us to the renowned Catholic sites of Québec, retracing the footsteps of Pope John Paul II during his 1984 pilgrimage. Our pilgrimage begins in Montréal at the Shrine of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, followed by visits to iconic landmarks such as Notre-Dame Cathedral, Saint Patrick’s, and the awe-inspiring Saint Joseph’s Oratory—the largest shrine dedicated to Saint Joseph globally.
