The name, "STE-GENEVIÈVE," was chosen because the whole region, at that time, was known as Ste-Geneviève-de-Pierrefonds. (Note that Ste is the abbreviation for Sainte.)
This Congregation was formed as a result of the vision and hard work of a few people in this area who felt called to establish a place of worship in the tradition of The United Church of Canada. The first members of the Congregation met in a local Fire Station and, subsequently, in one of the local schools. For a time, after receiving permission from the Montreal Presbytery to erect a church building, they held Sunday Services and Sunday School in a house which stood where the present parking lot is located. The present facility was built and dedicated in 1963. For a few years following its construction, much of the adjacent land remained as farm land, and St. John's Road (now a Boulevard) was a bumpy, winding country road.
We serve the western and central parts of Pierrefonds, the western part of Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Ile-Bizard, Ste-Geneviève, and part of Kirkland. We also have people coming from other municipalities of the West-Island as well as from off-island.
Our activities cover every age group. We have a place for the whole family, including, at present: Sunday School, Youth Group, United Church Women's Group, Discussion / Study Groups, Crafts Group, Pastoral Care Team, Mission & Outreach, Choir, Community Singing Ministry Group, etc. Another denomination and various community groups also use our facility.
STE-GENEVIÈVE UNITED CHURCH Is Dedicated To Witnessing To And For JESUS CHRIST In The Community, And To Co-operating With Others In Seeking To Understand And Serve A Needy World.
