The Église Notre-Dame-du-Mont is a Roman Catholic church in Marseille.


It is located in the 6th arrondissement of Marseille.[1][2] The exact address is 1 rue de Lodi in Marseille.[3][4][5] It is also located on a town square called Place Notre-Dame-du-Mont.[1][2]


A smaller church was built in 1586, where sailors would bring their ex-votos.[1][2] Over time, this tradition was moved to Notre-Dame de la Garde.[1][2]

In 1823-1824, the current church building was constructed in the neoclassical style.[1][2]

In 1839, Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849) played on the pipe organ inside the church, which is still there.[1][2][6]

It has four paintings by Barthélemy Chasse (1659-1720): La fuite en Égypte, L'atelier de Nazareth, L'adoration des bergers and Le mariage de la Vierge.[7] It also has one painting by Dominique Papety (1815–1849): Christ en majesté.

At present[edit]

The church building is open every day from 10AM to 12PM, and from 4PM to 6PM.[4] Mass is said every weekday at 8:30AM, every Saturday at 6:30PM, and every Sunday at 10AM.[4] The rosary takes place every at 5:30PM except Sundays, and the vespers take place every Wednesday at 7PM.[4]

The current vicar is Fr Jean-Paul Sorragi, and the deacon is Philippe Chollat.[4]
