  • Saint Joseph's Oratory of Mount Royal (French: Oratoire Saint-Joseph du Mont-Royal) is a Roman Catholic minor basilica and national shrine located at 3800 Queen Mary Road on Mount Royal's Westmount Summit in Montreal, Quebec. It is a National Historic Site of Canada and is Canada's largest church, with one of the largest church domes in the world. Founded in 1904 by Saint André Bessette in his patron saint, Saint Joseph's honour, the Oratory was brought alive through the work and ingenuity of numerous architects and thousands of workers in a process spanning six decades. With its monumental scale, Renaissance Revival facade and contrasting Art Deco interior, all of which were atypical for a church in North America at the time, the Oratory is recognizable not just in Montreal but around the world, attracting more than 2 million visitors and pilgrims each year. The Oratory is the highest building in Montreal and rises more than 30 meters higher than the height of Mount Royal's summit, allowing it to be seen from many kilometers away. It is one of the few buildings that violates the height restriction under the municipal building code of Montreal. Since 2018, the dome and lantern atop the Oratory have undergone a series of renovations by architecture firms Atelier TAG and Architecture49, which are expected to be completed in 2022. The C$80 million project will create safe access to the lantern which will allow for an unprecedented 360-degree view over the mountain of the city. (en)
