We had seen this wonderful church at a distance many years ago - and were so looking forward to properly exploring it on this visit. We made a special time to see it - and it is TOTALLY covered in scaffolding and protective fabric. There seems to be some roofing problems apparently, but the notice outside in French did not seem to say for how long. We were there on a Sunday morning, and the Mass service was being conducted in the garden in front of the cathedral. You would need to check with the Tourist office I imagine, to see whether it is finished - should you wish to pay a visit.
