Known locally as Sint Michiel en Petruskerk, this church was built 1893-97 after a Romanesque Revival design by Belgian architect Frans van Dijk.

The interior contains mosaic decoration by Salviati designed by Henry Redig.

The half-dome of the apse portrays an enthroned Christ surrounded by his Apostles.
