Their purpose is to facilitate the use of these remarkable buildings protected as historical monuments, in compliance with the provisions of the law of 9 December 1905, administrative jurisprudence on the use of buildings of worship for purposes compatible with the religious use and the Heritage Code.
Theexecution of the works of any kind must be done with theservice agreement so that they do not constitute an obstacle to the free exercise of worship and the conduct of ceremonies. DRAC services inform the assignee when work is planned.
When of alteration work are envisaged (for example: order of stained glass windows, development of a sales counter, development or creation of liturgical furniture or an organ...), it is necessary to warn very upstream of the project, the State services (DRAC and curator of the cathedral).
