St. Stephen's Greek Orthodox Cathedral is the seat of the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of France in Paris. It is located at 7 rue Georges-Bizet, in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. It was consecrated on 22 December 1895.
Before the church was consecrated, there had been at least two attempts at creating a permanent Greek Orthodox place of worship in Paris. The church was commissioned by Demetrius Stefanovich Schilizzi, designed by architect Émile Vaudremer, and built by Guillotin. The purchase price of the site and construction cost amounted to F1,630,000 in total. The inside walls were decorated by Charles Lameire and the marble iconostasis by Ludwig Thiersch. Léon Avenet worked on the stained glass.
