This baroque church is three-aisled, without a transept. The lower part of the fassade is a mix between the baroque and the classicism. The porche with Tuscan colomns carries a fronton. The fassade is flanqued by falling back wings, crowned with flame vases. The upper part of the fassade and the neoclassicistic lantern tower are dated from 1828.


The interior breaths baroque out, aswel the stuccowork as the wood-engraging. The choir stalls en de confessional are dated from the first half of the 18th century.

Near the right side-aisle there is a chapel with a little statue of the Holy Mary of the good luck dating from the 16th century. This statue comes from Aberdeen in Scotland.

There are several painting hanging in the church from the 17th and 18th century, such as 'our Holy Mary appearing to Saint Philppus Neri' painted by Gaspard de Craeyer.

The church posesses a beautiful organ.


Rebecca Sampathkumar: 'I have a strong connection to this church. Though born in a Christian family never attedended the churh regularly. This church made me draw closer to God. '
