The Church of St. Frances de Chantal is a Roman Catholic parish church under the authority of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, located at Harding Avenue at Throggs Neck Blvd., Bronx, New York City. The parish was established in 1927.

The present Brutalist-style church structure was built 1971 to designs by Paul Reilly. The identity of the architect is Paul W. Reilly, claiming the church as his own in the American Architects Directory.[2][1] Colorful chunks of stained glass are set directly into the concrete in the style of the then-contemporary European post-war stained-glass work.

In 2015, parish priest Rev. Peter Miqueli resigned after being accused of embezzling over $1 million to spend on a sadomasochistic gay love affair. [3]
