The celebrations attract many Christians in Saint-Eustache who are sensitive to the beauty of a liturgy that is being implemented to support prayer and meditation. The layout of the premises, the decor of shadows and lights, the movements of the celebrants, allow to live intense spiritual moments.
From one year to the next, in the course of the ceremonies, the space is renewed to stimulate the spiritual experience of each one.

We are often asked : "What subsidies does Saint-Eustache receive?"
Answer: None! Neither the state, nor the diocese, nor the Vatican. That is why the parish is very grateful to the more than 500 donors, on average, whose generosity helps to ensure the operating and investment expenses. Every day, the parish priest of Saint-Eustache must find 2 000 euros to "run the parish". It should be clarified that the Church's denier (average donation in 2017 of €438.74 per person, compared to €460 in 2016) is the first source of income, a quarter of the annual revenue.
On the other hand, the quests can only cover the direct costs of organizing masses (3 euros per person). Additional revenue is added: Sales of candles, real estate incomes, provision of the church for concert organizers. In 2018/2019, the IRS maintains this advantage: a deduction of 66% of your donations to the limit of 20% of income.
