A Holy Door is a symbol of oneness with the Universal Church. It is also a symbol of convocation, an invitation to persons of good will to enter, whatever their religious denominations.
It is a visual symbol of internal renewal, which begins with the willing desire to make peace with God, reconcile with your neighbors, restore in yourself everything that has been damaged in the past, and reshape your heart through conversion..
Cardinal-designate Archbishop Gérald Cyprien Lacroix
The Holy Door serves to remind today’s pilgrims of all those who came before us to bring the Catholic faith from France to “New France.” May it serve as a visible sign of faith for future generations.
