Québec City Tr@vel News - April 9, 2014



  A newsletter from Québec City Tourism
April 9, 2014, Vol. 11, no. 4
The 350th anniversary of the Notre-Dame Basilica-Cathedral
Notre-Dame de Québec is both the first cathedral built on the continent and the first Catholic parish established in the Americas north of the Spanish colonies.

The celebration of this milestone will not only highlight different aspects of Québec City society (faith, history, families, heritage and culture), but will see an important legacy be bequeathed to future generations.

In addition to the many activities organized in association with the 350th Jubilee, Notre-Dame de Québec will also have the honour of having the first Holy Door installed outside Europe. The faithful are encouraged to follow in the footsteps of the city’s founding residents and embark on a pilgrimage to pass through the Holy Door.

The religious heritage across the Québec City region comprises over 130 churches, twenty convent chapels, two cathedrals and two basilicas. Each of these ancestral sites bears witness to the origins of the many immigrants who settled in what once was the colony of New France.

Major annual events in Québec City
Québec City hosts a wide range of major family, artistic, cultural and sport events all year long. See the calendar of events for more information.
