Square-headed doorway to porch having timber battened double-leaf door with raised smooth render surround. Interior has exposed timber scissors truss roof with painted timber sheeted ceiling, drip-mould to chancel arch, and with moulded sill course to backdrop of sanctuary.

A well-maintained modest Catholic church constructed to a traditional design, with nave, chancel, sacristy and porch. The plain facades are enlivened by the tall pointed window openings. The stained-glass windows are of some artistic merit and help create a bright, welcoming space. The church is a significant religious building in the district.
