Our Lady of Lourdes Church

Our Lady of Lourdes is a Roman Catholic church located at 520 Sherbourne St (between Lourdes Ln and Earl St on the west side) in the Upper Jarvis neighbourhood of Toronto.

Built in 1884, architect Frederick Charles Law modelled the church after Santa Maria del Popolo in Rome. The Renaissance Revival-style structure cost was about $45,000. Later additions and remodelling, done in 1910, were designed by architect James Patrick Hynes.

Our Lady of Lourdes received heritage status from the City of Toronto in 1973.
