Notre-Dame de Calais
The font
The beautiful blue Soignie stone tank used to
stand on a marble pedestal dating from the
15th century.

This part had to be replaced but part of it
can still be seen.

The magnificent gilded oak lid has just been
made in conformity to the original one.

Yvonne Vendroux, who was to become
Madame de Gaulle, was christened here.
The Christening of Christ
“The Christening of Christ in Jordan by John the Baptist”
This is a painting by De Roose.

Christenings followed the rite of total immersion at the time.
