Monasteries, Religious Buildings of Montreal

There are many churches in Montreal, but there are also a lot of other religious buildings such as convents, monasteries and main building of religious congregations. Even though these organizations have fewer members then before and that many of their buildings were turned into places of education or housing, they still large landowners on Montreal island. Most of the time, religious communities own very old buildings that are part of Montreal architectural heritage.

Several things explain all these religious buildings in Montreal. The fact that the various congregations have been responsible for education and health care over several centuries partly explains but the main reason is: former bishop, M Bourget, during the nineteenth century invited many French religious organizations to settle in the city of Montreal to reinforce Catholic presence and power.
