Behind a brick, neo-Gothic church facade one will discover a sanctuary and a parish hall on two levels. This amazing construction is the ingenious result of a fire in 1977. Instead of demolishing or reconstructing the church, it was decided to re-design it. A false ceiling was inserted into the remaining outer walls. Both levels can be admired from the outside through an enormous portal and the glass courtyard. Three windows in the sanctuary depict, in the form of photographic prints, the faces of 12 women and men whose lives had been exemplary in the christian and humanitarian sense.
