The Pastoral Unit of Old Montreal and the Quartier Latin was created in 2003 to better meet the pastoral challenges of these two neighborhoods and to better manage the pastoral work of priests who serve there. His first moderator was Monsignor Yvon Bigras, PSS who directed the Unit until 2006. He was succeeded by Fr. Robert Gagné, PSS, the current moderator, who with a team of three other Sulpicians and several religious and lay persons take care of various pastoral activities.

The Unit has four places of worship, each of which has a very remarkable character. 


Notre Dame of Montreal Basilica is the most beautiful church in North America, and the Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel located in the heart of Old Montreal, a typically tourist place. While places of Catholics worship and spirituality, where are celebrated the Eucharist and the Sacraments, they are also places of activities that promote Christian culture and art.

                   Notre Dame of Montreal Basilica.

Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes Chapel is located in the Quartier Latin, right in downtown Montreal. A jewel of Canadian religious art, built in Romanesque Revival style, it helps the People of God to approach Jesus through Mary. In addition to this liturgical and devotional vocation, it is also a center for pastoral care to the poor and homeless.

Notre-Dame-de-Neiges Cemetery, the largest cemetery in North America, is also a part of the Pastoral Unit. It serves the Catholic population since 1854 and is a memorial site since five generations.
