A convent of strict observance of the Order of the Frères Prêcheurs, it was founded by Father Sébastien Michaelis in 1611-1613. Closed in 1792, it gave its name to the famous Jacobin club which had appropriated it as a meeting place. Located on the present site of the Saint-Honoré market, it was destroyed in 1809. During the restoration of the Dominican order by Brother Henri Lacordaire, a convent was built at 222 rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré under the name of Convent of the Holy Sacrament. It regained its former title, convent of the Annunciation, in 1952. The neo-Romanesque church was built between 1877 and 1897 by architect Paul Marbeau.

The instrument was made by Merklin and inaugurated in 1879. In 1894, the organ was equipped with a new buffet, offered by a generous donor. The instrument was awarded at the 1900 Exhibition-Universal. Later, the composition was changed slightly by the house Cavaillé-Coll-Pleyel. Between 1953 and 1956, the titular organist at the time Xavier Guerner made a series of transformations with the help of Chéron in order to adapt the composition to the neo-classical style, in vogue at the time. In 1985, a restoration/reconstruction was done by Xavier Silbermann of Thonon-les-Bains, with a re- harmonization in the neo-Baroque style. In 2020, works were done to return to a more romantic aesthetic by Sébastien Braillon (Illfurth, 68). He replaced all the reeds of the Great and the Pedal with reeds according to Bertounèche's model and replaced a Voix Céleste on the Swell.
