Over the years, the interior of the church changed. In 1946, the interior was decorated only with a small mural of a dove above the altar and chandeliers. Subsequently the church would be further adorned with decorative art and paintings.

The church is seventeenth-century Italian Baroque in style.

The basilica type interior consists of the nave and side aisles with large rounded columns.

The main altar, the side altars and the communion rail are of imported Carrara marble.

The stained glass windows are painted in Renaissance style in very rich colors.

The Clerestory Windows are from ca. 1980.

All aisle windows date back from when the church was built.
