He established canons of the Prémontré order there, a sanctuary whose Romanesque tower still exists.The hospital and the sanctuary were damaged in 1298 by the Strasbourg residents during the siege of Haguenau. It is included around 1300 in the Gothic church. In 1424, the church was enlarged. A small chapel was built by the Premonstratensians in 1785 and then in 1786, they added their buried funeral vault which was surmounted by a chapel of the Holy Sepulcher. The current bays and vaults are neo-Gothic in style and date from between the 19th and 20th centuries.In 1535 the convent of the hospital and the church were sold by the Premonstratensians to the city And in 1643 the Premonstratensians bought the whole. During the Revolution, the buildings were sold to an individual and then bought back by the administrators of the parish. In 1846, the neo-Gothic sacristy was built.In 1932, a neo-Gothic baptismal chapel was built.World War II caused enormous damage, the 13th century bell was completely destroyed and the tower was badly damaged. But the church was not restored until 1965, the original framework of the nave was removed as well as the painted decoration which was inside the church.
