  • The chapel of Saint Joseph, is part of a set of Conventual buildings of home and gardens, of the Congregation of sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny. Founded in 1849 by the mother superior Anne Marie Javouhey, this congregation has help and charity operations in many countries around the world. At Paris headquarters at no. 21 rue Méchain in the 14th arrondissement, you can visit the Chapel and gardens if you take go. The website of the congregation gives all the information. It is Sister Jeanne Marie, of Malagasy origin of the Betsileo country, lingerie and the visitor loaded, who kindly received me. We first talked about Madagascar I knew before making the visit. The chapel built by architect Lebreton, in the neo-Gothic style, contains all the attributes of this style with a nave with transept, rose window and Bell Tower in the shape of arrow on the roof. The façade on a plan is organized around the entrance portal surmounted by a tent, with a rose window of stained glass. The nave is flanked by collateral with many historiated windows. Inside, the nave is vaulted ceiling, supported by crossroads of warhead, leaving thin pillars entirely painted in the three colours, blue red and green in the form of liserer. The bottom sides are traditionally organized in three parts, with the arches, overcome a blind triforium, and above a row of stained glass. Numerous polychrome stained-glass windows are dedicated to saints and Thanksgiving. The apse is open from two rows of bunk windows reminding the Saints of the Gospel. The bottom of the altar is also open stained glass in geometric designs, the walls being entirely painted with friezes of plants and interlacing forms. The frames are decorated with balusters painted capitals to hooks. The altar is of Burgundy stone, to remind the Abbey of Cluny, the mother house, and has a hunt wood containing the relics of the founding mother. Two large frescoes of very good quality, surround the bottom of the apse on the announcement to Mary and to the Holy family to the birth of Christ. The statue of the Virgin Mary, is placed on a Board decorated with lilies above the altar. The sister Anne Marie Javouhey sculpted marble statue, is located to the left of the nave, on a pedestal.
