The church In 1859, the parish priest of the Madeleine Church, Father Le Rebours, created a mission and had a chapel built by the Lazarists, a congregation founded by St. Vincent de Paul. Father Le Rebours is a former secretary to Sister Rosalie Rendu (died 1856). The chapel was dedicated to Saint Rosalie, a 3rd century martyr and patron saint of Sicily.However the work by Baron Hausmann, which upset the capital, also affected the district. Sister-Rosalie Avenue was pierced and the chapel destroyed. It was replaced in 1867 - with expropriation allowances - by a building built in neo-Gothic style on the plans of the architect H. Marchand. In 1963, the church was erected as a parish. In 1971, the Lazarists left the site. Saint-Rosalie is a church with sober decoration. However, it boasts beautiful neo-Gothic capitals (enriched with a carved cornice) and a splendid stained glass window by Édouard-Amédée Didron (1836-1902) in the choir. Masses with organ Saturday at 6:30 p.m., Sunday at 11 a.m. The organ The instrument was built at an unknown date by Mutin- Cavaillé-Coll. Despite its current state, it has remained totally authentic and deserves a restoration.
