St. Francis de Sales Institute

Soeurs Oblates
Grand-Rue 40
1618 Châtel-St-Denis

The old church, recognizable by what remains of its bell tower and its circular apse, which once constituted the choir, now serves as a chapel for the Oblate Sisters of St. Francis de Sales.

In 1953, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Institute, two stained glass windows by Yoki were installed there, displaying a happy harmony of colors. They celebrate the role of Mary in the mystery of Redemption. The one on the left - to be read from top to bottom - up to the birth of the Savior; the one on the right - to be viewed from bottom to top - from the death of Jesus to the coronation of the Virgin in heaven.

In 1986, stained glass windows were installed in the choir. A fresco dating back to 1783, a work by Gottfried Locher, was discovered in 1999 and restored in 2000.

This fresco, presented in the form of a medallion, depicts the Last Supper.
