Street GROU

City of Saint-Laurent

 

 

« Armand Grou (1892-1961) was pastor of Saint-Laurent from 1942 to 1950.  He did his classical studies at the Saint-Laurent college and was ordained in 1917.  Subsequently, Father Grou held various positions: vicar of Saint-Laurent, professor and Superior of the Saint-Laurent college, and Superior of the Quebec City and later the Montreal Scholasticate.

The Grous are one of Saint-Laurent’s oldest families.  Their ancestor, Jean Grou, was killed by the Iroquois in 1690.  At the beginning of the 18th century, two of his sons moved to Cà´te Notre-Dame-des-Vertus.  Pierre and Jean Grou respectively married Louise-Angélique and Marie-Jeanne Cousineau, the daughters of Jean Cousineau, the ancestor of that family.  They left numerous progeny.  Their descendants include J-A Grou, alderman and Mayor of the city of Saint-Laurent from 1917 to 1919 and 1921 to 1927 Â»

 

 

 

Grou Street was named april 14th 1950.
