The restoration of the exteriors of the church started on October 1, 2019. It concerns the main and lateral facades as well as the dome and the roofs.
Collectively financed by a generous patron, the French State and the City of Lyon, the works should last fourteen months. They are placed under the direction of Cabinet Architecture et Héritage.
