Saintly & Spiritual Experience
Jul 2019 • Couples
This is a hidden gem and an under-appreciated church. If you are a fan of Tintoretto (1518-1594), you need to see a spectacular version of the Last Supper (La Cène) that is very different than those of Leonardo da Vinci and most iterations thereof. It is under lock & key; hence, only available when a docent is present. The docent who taught us was an absolutely charming & kind soul! Check the web site for additional information.
Coincidentally, there is a lovely version in one of the side chapels: “La Communion des Apostres” by Henri Lerolle which is worthy of contemplation and study.
TIP: Finally, take some time to sit, meditate and do whatever nurtures your soul and mind. This is the place and there is always a need for all of us to “pray”...
I know an offering will be appreciated too.

Came here with my parents for a mass and had an experience so much better than expected! Beautiful peaceful mass, even we understand very little French, very beautiful building to observe with so much details to see and after mass there was an unexpected organ performance and I talked to the church staff and the staff actually called the organ player for me! He then brought me upstairs and actually played a song for me, i am very overwhelmed by how friendly people here are, even as an English speaker with a little French! If only I can post the video of Monsieur Leroy playing the organ... it was breathtaking!

Beautiful Impressive Church
Jun 2018 • Couples
My partner and I are spending an extended stay in Paris and have decided to try a different church each week. This week we chose Église Saint-Francois Xavier. Beautiful and impressive church.

We attended the 11:30 service which was a high mass meaning the mass is sung not spoken word. There were 5 priests, many alter boys and a small choir that sounded like there were 25 singers. The pipe organ was so beautiful, impressive music.

Great way to start the day.

One of my favorite churches in Paris

The church is absolutely stunning outside and inside. It probably does not get the same attention as the other tourist favourites but this one is definitely worth a visit with fewer or almost no crowds.

I had just arrived in Paris. Wandered past by chance. Impressive for me. Learned that it was just a hint of things to come. Still very worth seeing!

Very interesting church right on the green way leading to Les Invalides. Not super rich in its interior, still definetely worth to see. Don't miss it.
