The church In 1925, the church acquired the land of the Quai d'Orsay and entrusted the architect Carrol Greenough with the construction of a large neo-Gothic building. Construction of the building was completed on March 6, 1931, although a groundbreaking (laying of the first stone) took place on March 1,er 1926. The church has an iconography of great richness. The north stained glass windows and those of the narthex all have the same dimensions. Some stained glass motifs pay tribute to American soldiers who died during the First World War. The organ Until 1988, the church had an electric-powered instrument, built by Abbey in 1931 (the organ case is still present in the nave). In 1988, this instrument was replaced by a new Germanic organ contained in a neo- Gothic buffet (design: Gunther Hamann of Bendestorf). It was built by the Von Beckerath House in Hamburg. The instrument was harmonized by Rolph Miehl and Timm Sckopp.
