    J'ai eu le bonheur de chanter avec mon groupe DOMISOL le 30 AVRIL et j'ai été trés surprise de voir combien cette basilique avait été rénovée.car dans ma jeunesse j'habitais rue du Touat et je me rendais dans cette église. Ce fut un plaisir de voir les travaux effectués.Il faut espérer que les donateurs seront nombreux pour que la rénovation continue.
