Visited in April 2018. Just a few blocks from downtown and the Cathedral, this hidden gem is a must. It's like if you are bathed in light and love. A must in this chaotic city. Enjoy and breathe deeply. Dr Yves Cormier.

From the outside this church looks like a place you would avoid, but once inside...what a treat! The stained glass is absolutely breathtaking. I've never seen a church quite like it!
