Last summer, readers voted The Grotto Sudbury's best hidden gem. 

There are a surprising number of Sudburians who still don't know the Grotto even exists.

With its panoramic view of the city, 16-foot fountain and peaceful walking paths, it's no wonder The Grotto received this distinction.

If you're so inclined, you can check out this venue during the summer at a number of upcoming religious events.

Father Gérald Lajeunesse will conduct mass July 2 in celebration of Canada Day. 

Another priest (yet to be determined) will conduct mass to celebrate the Feast of Saint Anne July 26.

And on Aug. 15, Bishop Marcel Damphousse will conduct mass to celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary.

All three events start at The Grotto at 6:30 p.m. with the rosary (or the Way of the Cross in the case of the Aug. 15 event), followed by mass at 7 p.m.
