The Martyr's Shrine

This summer I actually had a vacation! This doesn't happen very often and usually I get a day trip here and a weekend there. We took a total of 5 days off which is a big thing for me and my husband since we are both self-employed. He is a miniature sculptor.

At one point of our trip we were out looking for Saint Marie among the Hurons which is a monastery and we happened upon the Martyr's Shrine. We stopped there and were filled with peace and awe at the beauty of the church and the grounds. Two Saints lived and worshipped there and we were able to see the relic of one Saint, his skull, in the church.
Here are a few pictures of the grounds.
