This gable-fronted church has square, crenellated, corner towers of vastly different heights with Tudor-arched entrances. The gable front is almost filled with tall round-headed windows and is enlivened by slender stone pinnacles and bands. Inside, the auditorium-style sanctuary has been remodeled but retains a large group of stained glass windows, although those on the facade are interrupted by a balcony.
