Société des musées du Québec

Musée Bon Père Frédéric


Father Frédéric was beatified by Pope John Paul II on September 25, 1988; the church in Canada hopes that he will be canonized in the near future. Visit the museum and meet a man much loved and loving, both in Quebec, where he lived for nearly 30 years, and in the Holy Land, where he worked for 14 years. Paintings, life-sized reproductions and sculptures large and small illustrate the life of this man, a friend and confidant of Saint Brother André.

Museum experiences

  • Touring the museum, you’ll come to appreciate the goodness, generosity and charitable spirit of this larger-than-life figure, and see personal objects that belonged to him.
  • Drink in the silence of the chapel or the crypt. You can also meet the Franciscan brothers, keepers of the museum, as they go about their work or prayers.
