DSC_0071Welcome !

Our Anglican Services are in English and are held at La Chapelle de l’Assomption

In addition to the Chapelle there is also a large and flourishing school.  We are guests of the Communauté de l’Assomption and must abide by all the strict hygiene rules which are given to us. So cats and dogs are strictly not allowed into the grounds of L’Assomption.

If you plan to arrive with your cat or doggy friend then please park in the streets outside. There are usually plenty of parking places nearby particularly in rue Sainte-Germaine which is the turning to the right immediately before the entrance.

The temporary entrance which we previously used for pedestrians, cyclists and cars is now closed and we have reverted back to the normal main entrance entering via the large red double gates on boulevard President Wilson.
