- Every year millions of people come to pray at the Chapelle de la Médaille Miraculeuse, where, in 1830, Sister Catherine Labouré (now St. Catherine) thrice saw an apparition of the Virgin Mary. During these visitations, the Holy Mother promised that graces would be poured upon all those who prayed at the chapel's altar or who wore a special medal around the neck. Over the centuries, many have claimed to have had miraculous results from following these holy instructions. Skeptical? Drop by anyway – the simple chapel is a serene place to sit and reflect in an otherwise hectic quarter. -Barbara Diggs
