The catholic community started building their church when the protestants just finished theirs, in 1740. It was dedicated to Saint John Nepomuk, his statue can still be seen on the streetside gable. It served as parish church until the much larger new church was finished in 1890, a few metres down the street. The old church was turned into a nunnery. The nuns ran a kindergarten and a crafts school for girls. Nowadays the building serves as parish centre and library. The choir, which still has its tall windows, contains a chapel. The restb has been divided into two storeys with smaller rectangular windows.
