It was under the impetus and tenacity of Father Simeoni that the architect Dimitri Rotter (1878- 1938) and his son René realized this church. They were inspired by Auguste Perret, who had designed the Church of Our Lady of the Raincy. The blessing of the first stone by Cardinal Verdier took place in March 1933. The church completed on October 10, 1937. It is considered one of the most successful and homogeneous churches of those built in the 1930s. In Art Deco style, it has a splendid decoration due to the workshops of the Mauméjean brothers.

The first organ of St. John Bosco had been built by Cavaillé-Coll at an unknown date. It was probably an old house organ. In 1959, it was transferred to a new buffet by Jean Jonnet. In 1991, the organ was out of breath, and was replaced by a new instrument built by Dargassies.
