Long Description:

"The current St. Wulphy church was built on the plans of the architect Charles Sordi, a native of St. Ediffice is characteristic of the neo-classical style.

It is built of brick and stone and has a parallelepipedic shape. Its stone facade, of great sobriety, is pierced by a portal framed by columns surmounted by a triangular pediment. A quadrangular steeple covered with slates dominates the facade.

The main altar is surmounted by a glory surrounding a carved group representing the Assumption of the Virgin. The walls of the nave are adorned with wood paneling, paintings depicting religious scenes and statues of saints.

The entrance to the nave is surmounted by a tribune where is installed an organ built in 1895 by Salomon Van Bever and was raised by Daniel Decavel. "
