The works on the church began in 1861 under the direction of the architect Adrien Lusson. After his death, they continued, until 1874, with Joseph Uchard. The Church of St. Francis Xavier was consecrated on May 23, 1894. The church is built in ancient styles, that of the classical period for the nave, that of the Italian Renaissance for the façade.

The organ was built in 1878 by Jacques Fermis using the new pneumatic tubular traction invented in 1866. In 1880, a restoration is carried out by Cavaillé-Coll. In 1923, Ephrem and Gonzalez rebuilt the instrument. Works include a revision to the voicing, the replacement of the pneumatic stop action system, a new layout for the combination pedals and the enclosure of the Positif division in a swell box. At that time, the instrument has 58 stops among which 31 are enclosed. In 1957, Müller worked on the instrument. In 1992, Bernard Dargassies rebuilt the instrument. Works included the renovation of the organcase, the complete electrification of the instrument, repairs or replacement of part of the pipework and the replacement of the console with an electronic one.
