Évry Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church located in the new town of Évry , France. The cathedral was designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta. It opened in 1995, and was consecrated and dedicated to Saint Corbinian in 1996.
The Diocese of Corbeil, also known as Corbeil-Essonnes, was created in 1966, and the parish church of Saint-Spire was elevated to the status of the bishop's seat as Corbeil Cathedral, but neither it nor any other of the existing churches was suitable in size and location, and the bishop's offices were in a converted primary school. Évry was the natural centre of the area and population of the new diocese, and was accordingly chosen as the episcopal centre but lacked a suitable significant structure.
