Developed in partnership with a Montréal-based startup company, Heritage Software, the app helps bring history to life, by revisiting pivotal moments in the history of the Oratory and its founder, Saint Brother André, accompanied by new photos and never-before-published texts.

It is perfectly in keeping with the Oratory's ongoing efforts to reach out to all members of the community. According to its Facebook page, Twitter account and blog, the mobile tourism app is the latest in a line of tools designed for the modern visitor.

It uses a simple, user-friendly interface to enable visitors to explore six important locations on the site: the Crypt Church, Votive Chapel, museum, Basilica, Brother André's Chapel and gardens.

Pilgrims will be pleased to learn that, in addition to guiding them during their visit, the app offers prayers to Saint Joseph and Saint Brother André, as well as the schedule of masses at the Oratory.

The app can be purchased for $2.99. To download it, go to or the App Store (on the Apple website). It is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, and requires iOS 5 or later.
