This historical, classical church is in a depressed urban environment. The font welcomes all who enter with the opportunity to bless themselves and allows for the immersion of adults for baptisms. A statue of the titular, St. Francis De Sales, stands near the font as a sign of greeting. The font of Chemsford granite and the original marble bowl is a cost-effective integration of the traditional interior with the liturgical re-ordering of the church.
