Description

Built between 1875 and 1882 by architect Clair Tisseur the entrances of the church have never been used, since there was not enough space for a parvis with stairs in the small street and it was not allowed to demolish the barracks opposite the church, as was planned. The church is since 1984 no longer used for services and vandalised.

At the top of the façade is a statue of the Good Shepherd, and the three entrances each have a tympan with a relief by Jules Campanat.
