Museum and chapel

Frederic Janssoone Museum

The Father Frederic museum talks about the life of this Franciscan, born in France in 1838 and died in Canada in 1916.

Paintings, life-size sculptures, miniature reproductions illustrate his life in France, in the Holy Land and in Canada where he was a missionary. From the museum collection, visitors will learn to know this witness of the “Miracle of the eyes” at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Cape, to appreciate this tireless hiker going to meet the people to make them discover the life of Jesus of Nazareth.

Frederic was beatified by Pope John-Paul II on September 25th, 1988. While the Canadian Church hopes for his canonization soon, a visit to the museum will make you discover a loving man who was loved as much in Quebec where he lived for almost 30 years, as in the Holy Land where he worked for 12 years.

To visit this museum, is to discover the goodness, the generosity and the charity of this giant of our story. The descriptions are written in both French and English.

Chapel and tomb of Father Frederic

The Saint Anthony chapel is a place of adoration and permanent prayer for PEACE IN THE HOLY LAND.

This Saint Anthony chapel, blessed by Msgr. Francis-Xavier Cloutier on May 5, 1907 is located next to the convent of the same name. It was constructed thanks to the donations collected by Father Frederic in the diocese of Trois-Rivieres, row by row, in the 67 parishes served.

Good Father Frederic prayed there, presided over Masses and greeted many people in distress.
Upon his death in 1916, the body of Good Father Frederic was placed under a slab of black stone in front of the main aisle. Now he rests to the left of this chapel since his beatification in 1988. This chapel is dedicated to Saint Anthony of Padua, patron of the Holy Land. It is maintained by the Franciscans.
