The St. Anne de Beaupre Basilica is a truly remarkable place, no matter what faith one adheres to. It is simply an architectural marvel, and completely awe inspiring and stunning. It is essentially impossible to describe the grandeur and beauty of such a site; you really have to visit the Basilica to appreciate the magnitude and scope of such a monumental work of art.
The students, like anyone else, were in total awe. They were quiet and completely respectful of those who came to worship and they took their visit very seriously, hanging on every word of our tour leader. It’s so refreshing to see how humbled the students were by the atmosphere of reverence and sanctity that surrounded them.
