Saint Ann’s Church
Organized about 1848 as a Mission – The church opened in 1854.
This church was the soul and inspiration of the Irish Community.
Although, it has been closed and demolished for years, Saint Ann is still referred to in numerous writings about the Irish of South Central Montréal – In 1884, a portion of the congregation of the Parish of Saint Ann were asked to join the ranks of Saint Gabriel. It appears that a fair number of Irish families agreed to the move In 1982, the parish of St Ann would close its doors.
