Keys to History

The Church of the Holy Name of Jesus was built in 1857-1858 to serve the village of St. Louis of the Mile End. At first just a "branch" of Notre Dame Parish, Holy Name of Jesus became a separate parish in 1867. Five parishes were subsequently split off from Holy Name of Jesus, making it a kind of mother parish for the north end of the city in 1900. A new, extraordinarily flamboyant façade was added in 1901-1902.
