MIDLAND, ON (1 February 2023) – Martyrs' Shrine announces plans of their 2023 Lenten Missions offered to parish communities in the Archdioceses of Toronto, Hamilton and Peterborough. Let the lives of the Canadian Martyrs deepen your parish’s connection to Christ as we journey with them in celebration of the Easter Triduum and Holy Week.
These Missions are designed to create retreat experiences for your congregation with the help of our Jesuit fathers and are customized to the community for which they are serving. Weekday and weekend options are available, subject to need and availability. These retreats include talks, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and the celebration of the Eucharist. As well, our Jesuit fathers will be accompanied by the relics of the Canadian Martyrs for devotion and blessing.

Martyrs’ Shrine, Canada’s early church, is a national holy and historic space honouring the lives of the Canadian Martyrs. The Shrine celebrates a nearly 400-year-old story of love and discovery that inspired and influenced the formation of Canada as we know it today. The Shrine is a ministry of the Jesuits of Canada. This ‘house of prayer, home of peace’ honours the Jesuit missionaries and their companions who lived, worked, and died here in the lands of the Wendat (Huron) back in the seventeenth century. Martyrs’ Shrine is located just outside of Midland, Ontario, in the Heart of Georgian Bay. Typically, more than 100,000 visitors from around the world visit the Shrine for prayer, healing and fellowship each year.
