Climb the steps leading to the dome with pride!

As of now, you have the opportunity to purchase a step that will lead to the top of the dome, to the future Observatory that will be built in the last phase of Saint Joseph’s Oratory’s Development Project. It will be the highest point of view in Montreal, which was already planned at the time of Brother André!

Through your support of our mission of openness, gathering and reflection, you demonstrate your attachment to Saint Joseph’s Oratory of Mount Royal.

Reaching new heights, one step at a time!

By buying a step, you will be making a donation to help complete this major undertaking. And, the step will be “yours”!
Three categories of interior steps leading to the top of the dome are available to you

  • Green: $2,500 steps between the Observation gallery and the oculus. All of these steps have been sold.
  • Blue: $5,000 steps between the oculus and the highest steps
  • Orange: $25,000 steps leading to the Observatory in the lantern

Engrave your name in the history of the Oratory…

Once you have purchased your step, you can have your name inscribed on the stair riser, or you can choose your family’s name. The step can even be dedicated to the memory of someone who is dear to you.

Good to know

  • The price of each category of step represents a considerable sum that can be paid over a period of four years. The transaction must be completed by December 31, 2024.
  • The payments are non-refundable. If a donor has to stop his payments, the donation already offered will then be considered as a donation for the Benefactors’ Step.
  • Payment for the step can be made by cheque (payable to Saint Joseph’s Oratory Foundation), credit card or bank debit. Tax receipts will be issued.
  • A certificate will be sent to all donors with the location of their step.

The funds received from the sale of the steps will be added to those collected through the Reaching New Heights campaign. Carve out your place in history!
