Notre-Dame de Québec’s Holy Door will be opened on December 8th, 2023, for a very special reason: the 350th anniversary of foundation of the Quebec diocese.

During this year of celebration, the Holy Door—the only one outside of Europe—will welcome people from everywhere who which to experience, in crossing it, a spiritual process. For Christians, this symbolic passage is done through Jesus Christ.

During its inaugural year, in 2014, over 335 000 people passed though the only Holy Door in American. It was again opened during the Jubily of Mercy requested by Pope Francis in 2016, and the Holy Door will seemingly be opened again in 2025, for the Jubilee of the Universal Catholic Church. That date has not yet been announced.

We have begun preparations for the 350th anniversary of the diocese. Further information about the official program will be given during the next months.
