In April 1909, the Real Estate Company of the Paris Region organized a competition with its architects to design a parish church at 196 rue de Vanves, whose specifications were inspired by Father Boyreau. The project chosen was that of the architect Pierre Sardou for a church in Romano-Byzantine style, probably with Roman- Florentin influences, inspired by that of the Holy Apostles of Florence. The church was built between 1909 and 1911. Unfortunately, the ciborium, the lights and the gates of the choir were removed in 1967, following the redevelopment of the choir after the Second Vatican Council. Fortunately, since the 2000s, the church has continued to be embellished by contemporary works of great quality. The "20th Century Heritage" label of the Ministry of Culture was awarded to the Church of Our Lady of the Rose in 2011.
C1 The organ was built by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll during the years 1880-1890 (exact date is unknown). It remained several years in the workshop of the famous organ builder at the Avenue du Maine, where it was used as demonstration organ. It was then moved to the Sacré-cœur of Montmartre in anticipation of a new Great Organ. In 1913, it was transferred to Notre Dame du Rosaire. Maintenance was done during many years by Gutschenritter, followed by Marc Hédelin. At an unknown moment, J. Picaud added a Plein Jeu IV at the Swell (perhaps replacing an Octavin) at the request of the former titulaire, Jean Fellot (probably in 1956, when there was an inauguration by Marcel Dupré). In 1968, the Bourdon 16 of the Great was replaced by a Doublette 2’. The latest restoration dates from 2004 by Bernard Dargassies : Removal of the Doublette of the Great Addition of a new Octavin at the Swell Replacement of the Bourdon of the Great, being in a bad condition, by a Bourdon from the former Cavaillé-Coll organ of the Opéra comique in Paris Removal of the Plein Jeu of the Swell, added during the 1950’s and addition of a new Plein Jeu IV on the GO.
