Enter into the rich history of the Mother of God's role in Canada s beginnings and grow with the deep faith of the pioneers and saints who loved her...
Underlying Canada's history as a nation from its earliest beginnings, like a hidden stream, giving it spiritual life and sustenance, has been the incomparable influence of the Mother of God. For early settlers and pioneers, Canada was the physical gateway to a new life and fresh beginnings. Touched by grace, they turned with yearning and devotion to Mary as the spiritual gateway to her Son.
Discover Mary's role in Canada s beginnings; read about men and women pioneers who were deeply given to her:
The Jesuit Canadian martyrs;
Holy native Catholics like Blessed Kateri Tekekwitha and Joseph Chiwatenha;
Jeanne Mance, Jeanne le Ber, Blessed Marie of the Incarnation, Blessed Catherine of St. Augustine, St. Marguerite Bourgeois, St. Marguerite D Youville, Blessed Marie-Rose Durocher, Elizabeth Turgeon, Marie Fitzbach and Blessed Bishop Laval.
