The Ermitage Saint-Antoine de Lac-Bouchette is one of the 5 national sanctuaries of Quebec. It distinguishes itself by the quality of its religious and spiritual approach and by the quality of its exceptional natural environment. The Ermitage Saint-Antoine is also an invitation to recreation, because in addition to the various facilities, the site offers lakes for canoeing, windsurfing, or a pedal boat ride. We also offer walking trails of various lengths for walking and meditation, access to the marsh for the observation of flora and fauna, picnic areas for fraternal meals, spaces for contemplation, retreat activities for rejuvenation, and places for meetings with family and friends. Our small solid wood hermitage cottages, located on the shores of Lake Ouiatchouan, are designed to live an experience of silence, retreat and rest. The Capuchin fathers, supported by the Hermitage team, offer to those who wish (in complete freedom), a moment of meeting and exchange that will allow them to live a unique and enriching human and spiritual experience. The entire team, the employees, the volunteers and the Capuchins are there to welcome you with joy. Religious tour available on site. Service also in English according to availability.
