Since May 1, 2004, the remains of Blessed Marie-Rose rest in Marie-Rose Chapel in Saint-Antoine-de-Padoue Co-Cathedral in Longueuil, in a rose-colored marble tomb placed below the altar. Previously, her tomb was at the motherhouse of the Congregation in Outremont.
To dedicate a chapel to Marie-Rose Durocher is to acknowledge her remarkable contribution and that of her religious family to the life of the Church and of society.
The space in the Co-Cathedral, set aside for the new tomb is the right transept of the church. This transept is delineated from the nave of the church by a delicate wrought iron grating, which includes a Dutch door leading into this special place of peace and recollection. Embedded in the door are the words “Chapelle Marie-Rose”. The remains of our Foundress are placed under the altar of the transept.
A statue of Marie-Rose is placed at the top of the altar. Facing the altar, in the back of the wall of the chapel, is Sister Cornelia’s portrait of Marie-Rose.
The beauty and the simplicity of the place invite us to praise God and to invoke a daring, generous and loving woman.
The Co-Cathedral is situated at the corner of rue Saint-Charles est and Chemin Chambly, in Longueuil.
Open every day from 7:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.
