Ville-Marie, Land of Calling

For youngsters in catechism courses who are preparing themselves for the sacraments of initiation to Christian life.

This fascinating visit is an opportunity for the children to make an excellent link with the various catechism courses. Initially conceived as complementary to preparation for confirmation, Ville-Marie, land of calling can be used with children preparing for baptism or first communion. Come and see the enormous heritage of faith left to us by the founders of Montreal.

Meaningful and unforgettable interpretive
visit for the entire family

While playing the roles of the men and women who built Montreal, families involved in Ville-Marie, land of calling MEET the founders of Montreal, true witnesses to faith, DISCOVER the action of the Holy Spirit in the founding of Ville-Marie, open themselves to share the trust in God of the first settlers and REFLECT on the discernment Marguerite Bourgeoys and Jeanne Le Ber undertook when faced with a calling from God.
