The church in the style of late Expressionism was built between 1929 and 1930 according to a design by Felix Sturm and covered with Beuthenian clinkers. The relief picture above the portal, designed by Paul Halbhuber in 1930, shows the appearance of the Lord after the Resurrection. It bears the inscription Soli Deo Honor (Glory to God alone).

The interior of the church is largely original. The semicir­cular apse with its verti­cally upwards parabo­li­cally converging divisions surrounds the altar. The vaulted parts are self-supporting and made of reinforced concrete.
