In the 1920s, the Saint-Cloud Gate district was expanding rapidly. A new church was then deemed necessary. Luckily, before entering the convent of the Order of The Visitation, founded by François de Sales and Jeanne de Chantal, a Local Parisian made an important donation to help with its construction. She then asked that the church be dedicated to Saint Joan of Chantal. The architect Julien Barbier (1869-1939) was responsible for his elevation. The Byzantine-style building was not completed until 1962. The church has a concrete structure. The rubbing walls are covered with 'reconstructed stones'. The interior, very large, displays an elegant sobriety that allows to highlight the contemporary furniture of Jean Touret.

Masses with organ

Saturday at 6:30 p.m., Sunday at 9 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. (extraordinary form).
The original instrument was made by Victor Gonzalez in 1939. The buffet (covered with varnished zinc sheets) was made by the sculptor Jean Touret, author of the altar "face the people" of ND of Paris, which unfortunately disappeared during the fire. Slightly damaged during World WarII, it was restored and re-harmonized by Gonzalez in 1952. In 1977, it was completely rebuilt by Alfred Kern of Strasbourg. The latter added 11 stops and achieved harmony based on the harmony performed at St Séverin. It was inaugurated by Michel Chapuis on March 24, 1977. Originally, the instrument was on a small platform in the choir (now Chapel of the Sacrament) Recording by Michel Chapuis
