BRIDGE OF ROSES
New Film Promotes the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary – Premieres October 7, 2021!
We’ve all heard of Fatima, Lourdes, Guadalupe and Champion: places where the The Blessed Virgin Mary stepped into time to call people back to Christ. Bridge of Roses: The Story of Our Lady of the Cape is a faith-affirming documentary which tells the story of Fr. Luc Desilets and his vow to dedicate his life to the promotion of the Confraternity of the Most Holy Rosary. This vow to Our Lady would set into motion a series of divine interventions that transformed a tiny church in Quebec into a national shrine and a devotion that has spread across Canada and throughout the world.
The Bridge of Roses Film On Demand digital version was released on October 7th, 2021, the 450th Anniversary of Our Lady of the Rosary!

Discover the Miraculous Beginnings of the Faith in North America
Discover how a miraculous bridge of ice over the St. Lawrence River in 1879 would help reignite the faith of a country – and inspire the birth of a National Shrine. From the arrival North America’s first missionaries — to the Virgin Mary’s first official crowning in 1904 and beyond, the place known as Tròis Rivières has become a bastion of faith, favours and Marian Devotion.
The Bridge of Roses documentary shares the inspiring, yet little-known story of the beginnings of the Faith in North America. Featuring beautifully dramatized recreations of the earliest missionaries in Canada, the miraculous Ice Bridge over the St. Lawrence River, and the miracle of the Prodigy of the Eyes. Expert interviews are provided by Bishop Pierre-Olivier Tremblay, Fr. Donald Calloway MIC, Fr. Mark Goring CC, Fr. Lawrence Lew OP, and more.

“Heavenly Father, we thank you for this inspiring project that is going to bring the message of the rosary and the beginnings of the faith in North America to a wider audience so that we can once again return to praying the rosary, so that we can tap into all these treasures that heaven wants to give us. We pray for Kevin and his crew, for Dennis and Angelina. For blessings upon them. For good fruit to come of all of their hard work, that souls will benefit greatly from this project. We ask this blessing through the intercession of Our Lady of the Cape, through the intercession of St. Michael and St. Joseph. The blessing of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.”
