Title
La religion, fer de lance de l’aide aux démunis dans la communauté protestante montréalaise au XIXe siècle et au début du XXe siècle
Abstract
A mixture of Christian duty, evangelism and liberal ideology influenced the social service network that was slowly developing in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in Protestant Montreal. Religion was the key to the work of secular charities, and its importance grew over the century as mainstream Protestant and Evangelical churches increased their efforts to reach the poor through aid and educational services. The author looks at these developments, focusing on the Anglican Church’s settlement house for immigrants, opened in 1895. She also highlights the work of the Old Brewery Mission and Welcome Hall, two Evangelical organizations whose mission strove to extend relief to the homeless, to alcoholics and to poor families, confident in the power of religion to save souls, change lives and eliminate poverty.
