The church was built in 1924 on the plans of architects Paul and Auguste Courcoux. The shrine is dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi to commemorate the seven hundred years of the creation of the Third Order of St. Francis of which Charles Tournemire was a member. The building, in the Italian Romanesque style, adopts the pattern of the churches of Umbria. Despite its franciscan sobriety, Saint-François-d'Assise is adorned with beautiful frescoes in the choir that contrast elegantly with the white walls and the dark hues of the ceilings. The interior is very bright thanks to the white stained glass windows above the aisles. Finally, six modern stained glass windows adorn statues of the Virgin and Child and of St. Francis in the aisles. Masses with organ Saturday at 6:30 p.m., Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. The organ In 1951, Louis-Eugène Rochesson installed an old house organ (probably built by Mutin) in the church. On the occasion of its transfer, it was electrified and its composition was rigorously transformed according to the neo-classical aesthetic. In very poor condition, it was replaced in 2008 by a new instrument built by Bernard Cogez.
