It was built by order from Count Henrih Plater-Zyberk near the valley of the Daugava River in 1863.  Church  had been made in the Neo-Gothic style.  The length of the church is 17m, width – 10m and height – 7,8m (without bell-tower).  Over the main entrance is a tetragonal tower, which is 13 axes in height.  From 1956 the priest of the church was Antons Gerins, which funded the church development.  He obtained a new organ, in the Gothic style and built two altars – in the one side – the Virgin altar, on the other side – St. Anton altar.  There is a garden and a stone fence around the church.
