Officials with the Borough of Villeray/St-Michel/Parc Extension expect to issue a building permit as soon as April to reconstruct the Koimisis Tis Theotokou Greek Orthodox Church on de l’Épée Ave. in Parc Extension which was destroyed by fire in April 2015. And according to Parc Extension city councilor Mary Deros, construction of the new church will be quick. She told Newsfirst Multimedia that the first religious services could be held this August when the Feast of the Dormition of the Virgin Mary takes place.
Deros chaired a public consultation meeting of the borough’s urban planning commission on March 30 which was attended by more than 200 people from all over Montreal concerned about the reconstruction project.
When the fire destroyed the church last April, members of the Greek Orthodox community all over Montreal were deeply saddened and resolved to see the historic church rebuilt.
