La Fondation du patrimoine Sainte-Jeanne-de-Chantal (FPSJDC), in collaboration with the Fabrique Sainte-Jeanne-de-Chantal, is happy to inform you that like 138 other places across Quebec, it will participate in the Open-house Days of Religious Heritage September 12 and 13.
During these two open-house days the Church of Sainte-Jeanne-de-Chantal will receive visitors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for guided tours. In addition to this visit, the podcast created by the Île-Perrot History and Genealogy Society in 2015 is available on the Foundation's website www.fondationsjdc.org/baladodiffusion.
This event aims to provide Quebecers with an opportunity to appropriate their religious heritage and to better understand its multiple artistic, historical and architectural characteristics. The doors of the presbytery will also be opened to promote the heritage and site revitalization projects.
For interior visits, in accordance with public health rules, wearing a mask or face covering will be compulsory for people 10 years of age and over and in general, visits will be made in compliance with public health rules aimed at countering the spread of COVID-19. All the activities offered in the program are free.
