The church In Paris, the Montmartre district had plaster quarries, which were widely used in the 19th century. Around 1860, with the increase in population, the need for a new place of worship was felt. But the city council rejected the idea of a new church. In 1891, the archdiocese expanded the former Chapel of Works, located within a hospital and served by the Augustinian sisters. The chapel was erected as a parish church in 1907 under the name of St. Genevieve. In 1908, it was expanded again. The shrine is built of grindstone and cement. The interior is beautifully decorated with arched arches in the middle of a beautiful whiteness, typical of the religious art of the early 20th century. Masses with organ Saturday at 6:30 p.m., Sunday at 10:30 a.m. The organ The instrument, originally built for the Berlioz Theatre in Clichy, was designed by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll in 1890. In 1909, it was transferred to St. Genevieve's Church, and the console was then modified by Charles Mutin. In 1955, Erwin Muller transformed the Octavin of the Grand Organ into a Doublette. In 1981, Barbéris was commissioned to carry out work on mechanics.
