Exceptional closure from January 5 to 19, 2024, an 11-minute film which presents the places will be available on request at the Saint John Paul II Welcome Center opposite the Basilica. Thank you for understanding


At Carmel

In addition to gathering in the Chapel near the Shrine of Saint Thérèse, you will be able to deepen with the visit of the Memorial “Thérèse her life in the Carmel, her message, her influence” located in the courtyard of the Chapel of Carmel.
Intended for everyone, visitors and pilgrims, it wants to present Thérèse and make the essentials of her message known by making people want to read her writings.

Cathédrale st Pierre 1

At Saint Pierre Cathedral

It is the place where Thérèse participated the most in the life of the local Church during her youth. It is, in fact, to the Cathedral that, for more than ten years, Thérèse went, every Sunday and often during the week, with her father and her sisters, to participate in the Eucharist. In the southern ambulatory, a marble plaque marks the site where Thérèse attended the Sunday High Mass.
