Church of St. Louis of the French

The Church of St. Louis of the French (Russian: Khram Svyatogo Lyudovika Frantsuzskogo) is a Roman Catholic church in Moscow, that was built 1790–91 in its historical center, in the neighborhood of the Lubyanka. The church was founded by and belongs to the French parish of the same name. By an agreement with France on December 31, 1786, the French nationals living in Russia were granted freedom of worship and permission to establish churches. The first French Church of St. Louis was established in an existing building and was consecrated on 30 March 1791. A larger building was later constructed and was consecrated on 24 November 1835 by the dean of Moscow, Archbishop Igor Motchoulevski, in the presence "of all city authorities". After the fall of communism in 1991, the church was returned to the French parish. The Catholic hierarchy was restored in Russia and a new priest, Father Bernard Léannec was appointed.
