The building



français

The old chapel, of which only the exterior structure has been left untouched by the developer who bought it, has had its interior completely remodelled, according to the plans of the architect Louis de Beauvoir. Today’s building has four storeys.

The visitor enters the chapel through a foyer (ground floor), which is used as a meeting and exhibition space. On the side walls are two papier maché models by Xavier Dijon SJ: the House of Europe and the Pascal Clock.


The liturgical main room is now located on the first floor and is accessible by an interior staircase and a lift.

The chapel having lost its previous height, the stained glass windows, work by the Viennese painter Thomas Reinhold and made by the workshop of the Schlierbach convent, in Austria, have become windows on the outside world.
The symbolism represented in the four stained glass windows: The creation, the Incarnation, The Burning bush, the gift of the Spirit at Pentecost and in the end window on the façade, The Resurrection.


The organ, constructed by Etienne Debaisieux, is placed on a gallery along the left side of the chapel.


Below a crypt with the Blessed Sacrament, inductive to personal prayer. The gold cross is the work of the goldsmith sculptor Philippe Denis.


May the road rise up
to meet you
may the wind be
always at your back
