This church dates to his first building at the time where the area is very popular with workers working in factories and plants in the area by 1900. The Church is open in 1909 and the architect chose the Gothic Revival style with ashlars and meulieres on the front. The tower is square with sloping roof, and today it is completely crushed by the great tower of 30 floors right next door; This gives this set a friendly air in this world of concrete. It is a place of entertainment and sharing that honors this parish, with a rather mixed population. Next door is an annex, our Lady of China, created to meet the need of worship of the large Asian community in this neighborhood. The parish organizes many activities aimed at all audiences; The name of Saint Hippolyte comes from what the land of implantation of the Church was transferred by Hippolyte Panhard, boss of the plants on this neighborhood at the time of the industrial boom. The original church which includes a chorus and 4 spans turns out to be too small and in 1924 it was enlarged with 3 extra spans and sides down, that we see today. The nave is of style neo Gothic, with pillars to marquee decorated with carved foliage. The polychrome stained-glass windows, representative of the Saints are very well crafted. The apse is decorated with 5 mosaics "Girard" located in height, beauty and a picture of the French school of the 17 th century representing the Visitation of the Virgin, which is located in the "small choir". Finally, the low relief are distributed in the nave, representing the life of Saint Hippolyte.
