Directions to Saint-Joseph-de-Lanoraie

Our starting point, Saint-Joseph-de-Lanoraie, is 35 minutes east of Montreal. 


1. You are responsible for your own transportation to the starting point.

2. We meet on the Friday evening at the village of Lanoraie, 35 minutes east of Montreal. From Montreal follow Autoroute 40 to Exit 130 for Lanoraie; turn right at Chemin de Joliette, toward the river. Our camp site is in the park across the road from the church of Saint Joseph, overlooking the mighty St. Lawrence River.

3. Please arrange your own dinner before arriving in Lanoraie to set up your tent, etc. There will be a general meeting and Q & A at 8:00. Compline will follow in the church.

4. Drivers and volunteers will move redundant cars (i.e. any vehicles not needed during the pilgrimage) after the Q & A meeting, to the large parking lot at the shrine in Cap de la Madeleine; this means pilgrims will be able to walk without worrying about their car, and will be able to drive home from the Cape without delay.

Note: We wake up at 6 a.m. on the Saturday morning. Please take down your tent and get your bags to the truck as quickly as possible, before getting breakfast.

Warning: Labour Day Weekend traffic can be heavy both ways; please allow plenty of time to reach Lanoraie. No food is provided on the Friday evening.
