Montréal’s Religious Heritage: Westmount and NDG, a digital chapter taken from the guide Discovering Montréal’s Religious Heritage, is your invitation to discover all the diversity and beauty of the religious heritage of Montréal and its environs. In full colour and lavishly illustrated with magnificent photos, this one-of-a-kind guidebook reveals the secrets of an exceptionally rich heritage unequalled anywhere else in North America.
This tour starts in Westmount, a wealthy city enclaved within the city of Montréal, and ends in Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, a residential district of Montréal that most people simply call “NDG.” The rich and varied religious heritage of this mainly Anglophone area of the Island of Montréal reflects the wide cultural diversity of its residents. Accordingly, on this tour, you’ll get to know the Apostolic, Baptist, Catholic (Anglophone and Francophone), Jewish and Anglican communities here.
Conceived for pilgrims whose journeys are prompted by their faith as well as those drawn by art, architecture, and history, Montréal’s Religious Heritage: Westmount and NDG shines a light on Montréal’s rich religious heritage, both ancient and modern. It also spotlights successfully converted religious buildings that have been given a new lease on life.
