La Congregation du Saint-Esprit — Interior - PARIS-2018-76 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

On our Paris Charms & Secrets electric bike tour of Paris we visited a very interesting church which Eric described as being the oldest in Paris. I believe it was the La Congregation du Saint-Esprit but I am not 100% sure.

It was interesting trying to shoot inside the dimly lit church hand-held with a F4.0-5.6 lens.

Église du Collège - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-03 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

The Église du Collège du Puy-en-Velay is a church of the Catholic faith. The construction of the church commenced in 1604 and was completed in 1635 and remains in use today.

In this parish church one will find the sanctuary of Saint Jean-François Régis, the apostle of Velay and Vivarais, who died in Lalouvesc (in Ardèche) in 1640.

Saint Jean-François Régis from 1636, apparently traveled the mountains of Vivarais and Velay to evangelize its inhabitants. He created a refuge on the Puy for repentant prostitutes, defended lacemakers by getting the Parliament of Toulouse the right to manufacture lace again of which Le Puy-en-Velay is well known for today.
