The church In 1856, a first church dedicated to Saint Éloi was erected in the Reuilly district. A second church, with a wooden ceiling, succeeded it in 1880. It was to be provisional but lasted until the construction of the current church, consecrated in 1968. The architect Marc Leboucher uses metal as a symbol of Saint Éloi, patron saint of goldsmiths and metallurgists. The organ The instrument was built between 1967 and 1970 by Kurt Schwenkedel of Strasbourg- Koenigshoffen. The latter reused much of the sound material of the previous instrument that had been built by Mutin in 1910, for the old church (re-harmonized by the Steinmetz brothers). Following the great heat wave of the summer of 2003, the organ was restored by Swidersky.
