St-Michael Church

Story

The Church of St. Michael and St. Anthony is a Roman Catholic church located in Mile End, Montreal. It was originally built as the Church of St. Michael and frequented by Irish Catholics. Because of the growth of the Polish community in the area, in 1964 a Polish mission was inaugurated in the church and the church's name was expanded to "St. Michael and St. Anthony".The church exemplifies cultural hybridity, being a Byzantine-styled church, built for Irish Catholics, in a multicultural neighbourhood, and being home today to mostly Poles and Italians. The church has also been noted for its Byzantine Revival architecture, complete with a dome and minaret-styled tower, making it "one of the more unique examples of church architecture in Montréal."HistoryConstruction on the Church of St. Michael the Archangel began in 1914, for what would grow to become the largest anglophone parish in Montreal. After a brief delay following the commencement of World War I, the church was completed in 1915 at a cost of $232,000, with a capacity of 1,400 people.Though Mile End was originally a predominately Irish neighbourhood, the Polish community grew such that the two communities "merged into one", and to reflect this change, St. Anthony was appended to the parish name, reflecting the "Conventual Franciscans’ devotion to St. Anthony of Padua." Today, the church is recognised as "the focal point for the Polish Catholics of Montreal."

I love the architecture of all churches but this one was particularly beautiful with its history and the free tour given by a lovely law student made it even more special. All the unique saints and their stories make it a must see!

Takes me back to my childhood and now I can share with grandkids. Don't forget the Easter basket blessings they have on the Saturday before Easter Sunday. Beautiful to see all the families and kids enjoying the experience. Architecturally stunning! Minaret etc.!
