This 850-year-old Gothic Cathedral remains the center of the French and their faith as it is being restored to its former glory. From here, you will visit Saint Chapelle, the private chapel of kings illuminated with streams of colored light through towering stained-glass windows. Celebrate Mass at the Chapel of the Miraculous Medal on Rue de Bac. St. Catherine was visited by Mary three times in 1830 that encouraged a revival in devotion to the church. She served the poor of Paris for 46 years, and when her body was exhumed, it was found incorrupt. Then we will journey to the Chapel of St. Vincent de Paul.
