The ‘Chapelle de Jésus-Enfant’ was built between 1878 and 1881 by the architect Hippolyte Destailleur at the initiative of Abbot Hamelin, first Rector of the Basilica of Sainte-Clotilde, to accommodate the children of the Catechism. The Chapel is therefore also called ‘Chapelle des catéchismes’. Its style is English neo-Gothic.

                                                                        Photo: Jeroen de Haan The organ was built originally by Cavaillé-Coll as the choir organ of St Roch (Paris I) and was shown at the Exposition of 1839. It was bought by the Lutherian church Temple des Billettes (Paris IV) in 1842. In 1988, the organ was moved to the Chapelle de Jésus-Enfant by Jean Renaud from Nantes, who rebuilt the instrument in a new, neo-gotic case designed by the architect Mouffle. All mechanics are new, only for the stop-mechanics some older materials were used. All stops are old, with the exception of the Octavin 2' of the Swell. Site of the organ
