Upon entering Saint Michael’s Basilica-Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Sherbrooke, you will find on the right, the Centre Marie-Leonie Paradis.  Its mission is to make known the life of Blessed Marie-Leonie Paradis, foundress, and the story of her Institute, the Little Sisters of the Holy Family.  Come and meet us at the reception desk, we will be happy to answer your questions.

The museum offers you a “self-guided” tour of the four thematic alcoves that recount the life of Mother Marie-Leonie through objects that belonged to her, photographs and texts.  There is also the important relic of Blessed Marie-Leonie in the southern transept where requests and intentions are expressed.

The museum is open during the opening hours of the Basilica-Cathedral. Often during the week, it is the right door that is open. Here is the schedule:


Monday to Friday: 7 am to 4 pm
Saturday: 7 am to 9 am
Sunday: 9 am to 6 pm
