WHY Montreal

This is the first time I was ever in a city where you couldn't throw a brick without breaking a church window. Yet I was told you are going to build one more... Mark Twain, during his first visit to Montreal, 1881.

There are literally hundreds of church buildings in Montreal. Historically Montreal has been the centre of Catholicism primarily due to its descendants of original French settlers. A census taken in 2011 describes the religious breakdown in Montreal as 84% Christian (made up of Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox); however, this same census describes church attendance as the lowest in Canada.

Ever since its beginnings, Montreal has known religion. Her roots are founded in it. Her architecture houses it. Her people speak it. Yet in the heart of this creative city is a desire for more than religion.

“After knowing centuries of Roman Catholic dominance, Quebec experienced classic secularization in the post-1950s. Service attendance dropped to the lowest in the country in the second half of the twentieth century. The church that once was the ‘core institution of the nation', playing a central role in family life, education and social services, and further influencing governments, business and labour, has increasingly been relegated to the sidelines of everyday life.”

Dr Bibby goes on to say that secularization appears here in direct rebellion to what was Montreal's roots. The people don't want religion! In the 1980s and 1990s, secularization was pronounced on the individual and institutional levels. But secularization doesn't satisfy either!

In our short time there we found a people hungry to know about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ! People want relationship, not religion!

We believe there needs to be a RESURGENCE of Jesus – pure and simple, personal and powerful! This will reinstate the local church back to her place of prominence in the city. No longer to be a building that Mark Twain could throw a rock and hit, but because she becomes the place for gathering followers of Jesus and those who have lost their way to Jesus, bringing all together in community.

The background of Montreal

Montreal was founded in 1642 as Ville Marie de Montreal by French missionaries, hoping to spread Catholicism to the native population and at the same time create a French Colonial Empire. Montreal is a gorgeous port city and became an important trading center and base for continued Western explorations and French expansion into what became New France, until 1760 when it was surrendered to the British Army. British immigration then began to expand the city.

The 19th-century immigration saw English, Scottish and Irish boost productivity and trade. Montreal, prospering in its Golden Age, became the commercial and economic center and capital of Canada.

It really came on the world's map when it hosted the International World's Fair, Expo '67, and the 1976 Summer Olympics.

It is the oldest city in Canada and infused with so much European flavour. Montreal has evolved into today's dynamic, historic, and multicultural city. It is invigorating to be there!

Language

The virgin embracing Christ

Montreal is the second-largest French-speaking city in the world. Use a little of the official language. Bonjour, bonsoir, and merci will be well-received and will give you the sense of being worlds away. Most people are bilingual, and English is spoken widely.

Culture

Montreal is known as the City of Festivals; with over 90 per year, there is something for everyone. Flora Montreal, International Fireworks Competition, International Jazz Festival, Just for Laughs Festival, International Film Festival, and Grand Prix Canada are but a few.

When the French colonized the island of Montreal in the early 17th century they dedicated their new town to the Virgin and used it as a missionary outpost.

Art and creativity were then used to pull people back to their roots of Catholicsim during the counter-reformation years.

Paintings like Claude Francios' oil on copper painting of the Virgin Embracing Christ and the Reed were painted to capture the hearts of converts and encourage the missionaries in 17th-Century Montreal.

Montreal's Storied Past

We believe a renaissance of creativity will see a resurgence as followers of Jesus and the lost find their way HOME!
