E6 The tribune organ was originally an Abbey from the 1920s, bought in 1949 from the composer François Ninnin: it was then reputed to come from a Parisian cinema (either the Imperial cinema, the Capitol or the Luxor). The installation work, unsatisfactory, was completed by Louis Eugène- Rochesson who installed a new console. The harmonisation was done by Maurice Gouaut. The installed organ was inaugurated by Gaston Litaize on May 7, 1950. In 1961-1962, Beuchet-Debierre carried out a major renovation work on the instrument (in particular the wind chests and expressive boxes). In 1988, the salon organ of Mme Dujarric's mansion in Boulogne-Billancourt was donated to the parish of Sainte- Odile. Given the financial budget, the piping was not reinstalled, but preserved. In 1995 the instrument was enlarged by Daniel Birouste, with some stops from the Dujarric organ, in particular the beautiful Voix humaine and the reed stops. In 2021, the bell set from the Dujarric organ, which was located in Saint-Joseph-des-Nations (11th arrondissement) was bought by the parish and incorporated into the organ. Currently an ambitious project to reconstruct the instrument to rebuild the Dujarric organ, respecting its 1930s aesthetics, is being studied.

The church was built by Jacques Barge (1904- 1979)from 1935 to 1946 at the initiative of Bishop Eugene-Edmond Loutil (1863-1959) to pay tribute to the patron saint of his native Alsace. With three domes reminiscent of the Cathedral of Périgueux and the famous Basilica of St. Sophia of Constantinople, Jacques Barge opted for a mix of Roman-Byzantine style and Art Deco elements. The building is made of reinforced concrete covered with Saverne sandstone and pink bricks. On the left of the nave, the three side chapels - very stripped down - are fortunately illuminated by the large glass roof of 300m2 of François Décorchemont (1880-1971). This canopy, divided into three bays, is regarded as one of the masterpieces of glass art in the 20th century. For a long time Sainte Odile was the Alsatian Catholic parish in Paris.
