Beautiful Abbey in a peaceful setting

This is such a nice place to visit to slow time down. The grounds are beautiful and serene to walk. The Abbey is beautiful with gorgeous stained glass windows.

I love this little get away hidden away in Mission, I am not religious, and do not come here for services. As I am sure there is much to be said about them, I can only speak from my experiences here... I will leave that review to someone with more knowledge! What I love about this place is how you...

About 500 yards behind the Abbey is a panoramic view of the Fraser River and valley. Easy scenic walk . The Abbey itself is a wonder to behold, but doesn't compare to any of the Cathedrals in Europe but impressive by BC standards.

This is the first stop we made on our day trip in mission. The setting of the abbey is just so beautiful, with rolling hills, well maintained landscaping. The trail leading from the entrance of the abbey leads into the woods and will take you to an awe inspiring panorama view of the valley. We went there on a Sunday... More

I visited this abby last summer and the grounds with all the flowers are amazing. I am not religious but when I entered the church my throat swelled and I felt a feeling of awe and amazment at the beauty and a feeling of being in a presence. The feeling shocked me, frankly, and I just sat for awhile and... More

Just a short distance from the U.S. border, north of Abbotsford, is this quiet, serene sanctuary on top of a hillside. It was a challenge for me to find using the MQ directions that I had printed out in advance (roaming charges can accumulate quite rapidly in Canada, so it was "airplane mode" for me while out of country), as...

I visited the Abbey as part of a small tour group, so we arrived by private bus after taking the West Coast Express (commuter train) from Vancouver. The Abbey itself is an impressive building from the outside, but even more so inside. The altar is in the centre of the interior, and you will note that although the windows on... More

As a lower mainland local, I was looking forward to seeing something more unique and interesting, especially while going through the Mission to scout for new places to visit. We lack a lack in terms of architectural wonders here, so naturally it was on my list. While it is geared most toward the faithful, it is an interesting place that... More

About five minute drive from downtown Mission..The road s good driving there and parking is not a problem..You can take a nice walk to a nice vievpoint which takes aproaimately a half hour return.. When you get to vievpoint you can see the whole valley..It is amazing..
