    Day 2: We will start the morning with a bus tour of the city, stopping at several of the memorials. After lunch we will have a tour of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Dinner and overnight in Washington DC.

    Day 3: After breakfast we will set out for the Shrine of North American Martyrs. After lunch we will drive the short distance to the Shrine for Kateri Tekakwitha. After spending time at the shrine we will depart for Buffalo, NY. Dinner and overnight in Buffalo.

    Day 4: This morning we will visit the beautiful Niagara Falls. After lunch we will depart for Montreal. On the way, we will stop for a tour of a vineyard and winery that includes winetasting and supper in Prince Edward County. Continue on to Montreal for overnight.

    Day 5: Today we will visit two of the most important shrines in Canada. We will begin with the Basilica of Notre Dame. Big enough to hold 4,000 worshipers and breathtaking in the richness of its interior furnishings, the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal is a magnificent Neo-Gothic church. Designed in 1824 by James O'Donnell, an Irish-American Protestant architect from New York, the architect was so moved by the experience that he converted to Catholicism. Visitors to the basilica today can understand the impact. After lunch we will go over to the St. Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal. St. Joseph's Oratory is a great basilica with a giant copper dome built in honor of St. Joseph, patron saint of Canada. The massive edifice is high on the slopes of Mount Royale in Quebec. Dinner and overnight in Montreal.

    Day 6: This morning we will have a tour of the city ending around lunch time with a free afternoon to explore more of the sites at your leisure. Dinner and overnight in Montreal.

    Day 7: After breakfast we will leave Montreal. Our first stop will be to the Shrine of Our Lady of the Cape in Trois Rivieres. After our tour and time for personal devotions we will have lunch at the shrine and continue on to Quebec City for dinner and overnight.

    Day 8: This morning we will start the day with a visit to the St Anne de Beaupre Shrine, the second oldest pilgrimage site in North America dedicated to Saint Anne, the grandmother of Jesus Christ. Discover the shrine’s extraordinary history through its paintings, mosaics, stained-glass windows, and stone and wooden sculptures, and learn about the role it continues to play in our people’s faith.
