Église Saint-Bernard de la Chapelle, or simply Saint-Bernard-de-la-Chapelle, is a neo-gothic Roman Catholic church in the Porte de la Chapelle area of the 18th arrondissement of Paris close to the historic village church of Saint-Denys-de-la-Chapelle where Joan of Arc paused when entering Paris in 1429 and to the north-west of the Gare du Nord, the development of which was responsible for its creation. In September 1996 it was the scene of an expulsion by the police of illegal immigrants who had taken refuge there. Saint-Bernard is also the name of the chapel of the Gare Montparnasse.
