The Archdiocese of Montreal’s religious patrimony is both rich and varied. It is built, yet intangible, and above all alive. It is made up of churches, rectories, chapels, furnishings, paintings, stained glass, gold and silverware, sculptures and wayside crosses throughout the territory. Patrimony is not only the conservation of old things; it is significant in this day and age.
This patrimony affirms that even today the permanent presence of Jesus Christ is among us. In a true missionary spirit, crossing the threshold of a church is welcoming the person who passes through, it is reaching out to meet the person who enters.
