The colored glass windows come from the artist Lydia Roppolt from the 1970s. The chancel with its simple formal language stands out due to its island-like arrangement of the altar pedestal in the front area of ​​the chancel.


The popular altar is made of smooth, polished pietra dura . The tabernacle on the north choir wall consists of two interpenetrating stone blocks, the opening of which is covered by a glass plate. As a link to history, three figures of Saints Maria , Anna and Joachim from the original main altar by the sculptors Johann and Josef Rint have found a place on the choir wall during the redesign.
