Saint-Dominique Church (French: Église Saint-Dominique) is a Roman Catholic church in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. It was constructed between 1929 and 1930. In 2014, the church was added to the Répertoire du patrimoine culturel du Québec.

History

The Dominicans arrived in Quebec City in 1906. They worked out of the Chapel of St. Dominic. In 1925, after nearly twenty years there, the chapel became home to a parish.

After a few years, the congregation became too large for the chapel, so St. Dominic's Church was built to replace the chapel. It was built in the style of English Gothic Revival and the first Mass was celebrated in the church at 25 December 1930.
