La Maison de Prière Notre-Dame, Longueuil

Located only a short distance from downtown Montreal, La Maison de Prière Notre-Dame is an oasis of contemplation in the city. Run by the Sisters of Notre-Dame (founded by St. Marguerite Bourgeoys), the Maison is a place of silence and prayer.

The Maison offers simple yet comfortable accommodations, nourishing meals and inviting grounds for walking and reflecting.

La Maison de la Prière merits its chosen moniker: “un Monastère sur la rue.” - a monastery on the street.

  • Maison de Prière Notre-Dame


    The Maison de Prière Notre-Dame is a veritable monastery on the street, promoting spiritual development throught silence and prayer.

  • Accommodations


    The spartan but comfortable rooms invite us to simplicity and help us to focus on the Word of God.

  • The Grounds


    You are welcome to walk about the grounds. A large park bordering the St. Lawrence River is also within walking distance.

    Meals are taken in silence together in the main refectory. Although a bit awkward for the first-timer, one soon begins to enjoy the "camaraderie of silence" this affords.
