Designed by Anton Dohmer of Milwaukee in a blend of Gothic and Romanesque styles, this brick church was built in 1904.  It was built to replace an earlier wood-framed building completed in 1881.  The parish was first organized in 1879 to serve the Irish immigrant popluation building the Northern Pacific Railroad.  The church features 12 stained glass windows and wall and ceiling murals.  Many of the inscriptions stenciled inside are written in German.  The cornerstone holds a tin box containing relics from Rome, Bethlehem, Jerusalem, the Mount of Olives, the River Jordan and Lourdes in France.
