Go to the 11 AM Sunday mass here. You won't be disappointed. Great organ playing and a congregation who sings the mass. Not being Catholic nor French detracts from the beauty and sanctity of the services here.

This church was begun about 1648 and has gorgeous stained glass windows added over the centuries. The church was bombed in WW1 on Good Friday so there were several new windows after that. You will be delighted by the vaulted ceiling.
