Église St-Pierre-Apôtre

Church in Rue St-Denis & the Village

The Church of St Peter the Apostle belonged to the monastery of the Oblate fathers who settled in Montréal in the mid-19th century. Located in the Village, this neoclassical church has a number of fine decorations – flying buttresses, stained glass, statues in Italian marble – but nowadays the house of worship is more renowned for its gay-friendly Sunday services.

It also houses the Chapel of Hope, the first chapel in the world consecrated in 1997 to the memory of victims of AIDS.
