Long Description:

"The entire glassworks of Saint-Sulpice was made between 1885 and 1926 with the exception of five fragments of stained glass dating from 1558, attributed to the master glassmaker Francois Pierre Symon and related to the crucifixion of Christ.

However, without being classified, the bays of the church are of interest as much from the point of view of art as the devotions to which they relate. Parisian workshops (Lavergne et fils, Henri-Charles and Emmanuel Tournel, Leon Payan and J. Guyonnet (1902), or the inhabitants of Ludovic Alleaume and Auguste Alleaume, were mainly illustrated.

The church has stained glass windows from the early 20th century, including the patriotic stained glass window of Joan of Arc, a vast composition that integrates the crowd of three hairy procession: this stained glass was donated to the parish by families fougeraies who had lost their son during the 1914-1918 war.

" L'ensemble de la vitrerie de Saint-Sulpice a été réalisé entre 1885 et 1926 à l'exception de cinq fragments de vitraux datant de 1558, attribués au maître-verrier fougerais Pierre Symon et ayant trait à la crucifixion du Christ.

Pour autant, sans être classées, les baies de l'église présentent un intérêt certain tant du point de vue de l'art que des dévotions auxquelles elles se rapportent. S'y sont essentiellement illustrés des ateliers parisiens (Lavergne et fils, Henri-Charles et Emmanuel Tournel, Leon Payan et J. Guyonnet(1902), ou encore les lavallois Ludovic Alleaume et Auguste Alleaume.

L'église possède des vitraux du début du XXe siècle, notamment le vitrail patriotique de Jeanne d'Arc, vaste composition qui intègre à la foule du cortège trois poilus : ce vitrail fut offert à la paroisse par des familles fougeraies qui avaient perdus leurs fils pendant la guerre 1914-1918. "
