Above the door, to the north, are David, Simeon and Isaiah who declare the arrival of Jesus Christ, and opposite the altar of the Virgin appear Judith, Elizabeth and Esther who divulge the approach of Mary.

During a hailstorm, the windows in the south were split.

To the east, seven stained glass windows at the end of the apse, mostly hidden by the altarpiece, represent the seven churches to which John refers in the book of Revelation. The others are consecrated to Saint Front, by the representation to the North of the religious authority of Christ and to the South of the civil authority of Christ. "

"Deux groupes de sept vitraux sont situés à l'ouest, de chaque côté du Grand Orgue. Sur le mur nord, sont illustrées des actions caritatives par saint Matthieu citées dans l'Ancien Testament. Sur le mur Sud apparaissent les Béatitudes de l'évangile selon Matthieu.

Au-dessus de la porte, au nord, se distinguent David, Siméon et Isaïe qui déclarent l'arrivée de Jésus-Christ, et face à l'autel de la Vierge apparaissent Judith, Élisabeth et Esther qui divulguent l'approche de Marie.

Lors d'une tempête de grêle, les vitraux au sud ont été fendus.

À l'est, sept vitraux situés au fond de l'abside, cachés en grande partie par le retable, représentent les sept Églises auxquelles fait référence Jean dans le livre de l'Apocalypse. Les autres sont consacrés à saint Front, par la représentation au Nord de l'autorité religieuse du Christ et au Sud de l'autorité civile du Christ. "
