  • This became Chapel Church in 1865, is located in no. 214 Lafayette Street between "Louis Blanc" and "Jaurès" metro stations. Oddly, the need to build this church is linked to the important presence of immigrants of German and Austrian origin in this working-class neighborhood at this time, to allow them a better integration. With donations from these communities, the Church was built in 1865 and is called St. Joseph of the Germans. In 1925, she changes guardianship, the initial needs having disappeared with the final departure of the Germans. Property of the Prince of Saxony in 1865, she changes charge in 1958, to be under the supervision of the Archbishop of Paris. Therefore, it is not property of the French State. The Church is deliberately style neo Gothic, without a lot of ornamentation and is medium-sized (46 m long). She is in one piece without transept. The front courtyard and is two-tiered surmounted of a simple tent flanked of two turrets. The first level is the open porch under a large arch with tympanum framed of two reinforcements. It is surmounted by a cornice of intricate offset. The second level is open to a large stained glass window to structure in interlacing with rose window in Gothic style. The nave is with sides down, on three levels with Gothic arches surmounted of a gallery in the clerestory with stained glass high and clear in geometric patterns. The pillars are ribbed with hooks and floral marquee. The apse is three-square, polychrome historiated windows open and the chorus is simple without ornamentation. The stained glass windows were donated by the Embassy of Austria in 1875. They represent St. Francis of Assisi, and St. Joseph and St. Elizabeth of Hungary; These stained glass usefully remind the Emperor Franz Joseph and the Empress Elisabeth (Sisi). Similarly, the weapons of the imperial family of the Habsbourg-Lorraine, are stained glass in St. Joseph. The altar is same pretty stripped style, with two blind arches with apparent stones. Above the arches, painted murals chronicle the life of Joseph by the artist Adolphe Vasseur (1836-1907) the side bottom of the small ambulatory, are with apparent stones, but with neat joints. Stained glass very modern by spots of color in red (passion) in green (peace and perseverance) and yellow (resurrection and joy) by the artist Kim En Joong, shed light on the bottom right side. In addition, beautiful statues populate this church, including St. Rita, patron saint of maids, carved wood, by Chevallier in 1850. St. Joseph, is also present with a polychrome statue, in an expressive style, in the side lower left. Our Lady of Luxembourg is also a statue, offered by the Grand Duchy in 1977. Absidiales chapels, surround the choir with including one dedicated to the Virgin with a statue in Majesty quite successful. This church does not have a very strong artistic character. It was built to the economy and so "utility". But the marked Gothic style, gives him a certain charm, and a few works of canopy and statues. It is open daily from 8:30 to 20: 00. It is accessible from the metro station "Louis Blanc" lines No. 7 and 7B. Then, we must go back to the Lafayette Street North on 160 m.
