This original design takes place in the choir of the church, and is composed of the altar, the ambo and the celebrant chair.
Mainly made of kiln formed glass, an exceptionally rare case for liturgical furniture, they complement four large chandeliers also designed for the building.
In the centre, a Christ in glory celebrates the Paschal Meal, surrounded by his twelve disciples.
On the sides, the Angel of the Annunciation, with a lily in his hand, responds to the Angel of the Coronation of the Virgin.
The glass figures of the four evangelists radiate from the central gilded metal cross.
It remains simple in its design. The dove of the Holy Spirit is on her back.
Glass, whose reflections change constantly with the day's light, helps to give substance to the luminous dimension of the Spirit.
A lighting is integrated inside the altar.

CDAS of the diocese of Saint-Denis
Heritage monument – XVIth century
The oldest building in the commune, the church of Our Lady of the Assumption of Stains (France) was completed in 1560 and houses a high altar and an altarpiece classified as a Historical Monument. Closed since 1995, an exceptional renovation project was undertaken in 2012 by the municipality, which mobilized more than twenty different trades, and thus saved the building from destruction.
The restoration of Our Lady of the Assumption Church was awarded Le Geste d'Or Jury Special Prize 2014.
