Work of the architect H. Canivet de Binche, this neo-Romanesque church was built by the Hainaut brothers in 1858.
This church has not known the passage of Napoleon's troops. But the small cemetery which surrounds it shelters the tomb of the priest Jean-Nicolas Jénicot, whose legend says that he met Napoleon, offered him his best wine and talked with him. Impressed by his verve and intelligence, the emperor, it is said, decided to make him the next bishop of Tournai. A promise that, after Waterloo, he was unable to keep.
The layout of the building remains traditional. The church was badly damaged during the explosion of the ammunition trains in the village station on the night of 14 to 15 November 1918 (work of the Germans...). It was restored identically.
