Long Description:
Fondée en 1913, la paroisse Saint-Marc situé à Rosemont (Montréal), a attendu jusqu'à 1931, avant d'avoir sa propre église. Bâtie dans le style néo-classique, cet église est une conception des architectes Donat-Arthur Gascon et Louis Parant. Elle est également l'une des rares, à posséder une magnifique orgue de Maison Casavant. À partir des années '60, l'église est progressivement délaissée par ses fidèles, et en 2008, elle a failli être fermée et vendue. En 2009, on annonça un projet de conversion en centre communautaire et culturel, mais l'idée ne s'est jamais matérialisée. Aujourd'hui, l'église est toujours active et les messes y sont servies regulièrement.

Founded in 1913, the parish of Saint-Marc located in Rosemont (Montreal), waited until 1931 before having its own church. Built in neoclassical style, this church was designed by architects Donat-Arthur Gascon and Louis Parant. It is also one of the few, to own a beautiful organ manufactured by Maison Casavant. Since the 1960s, the church was gradually abandoned by the parishioners, and in 2008, it was nearly closed and sold. In 2009, a project was announced, proposing conversion of the church to the community and cultural center, but the idea never materialized. As of today, the church is still active and masses are regularly served.
