CZ: Jednolodni pozdne barokni kostel pochazi z poloviny 18. stoleti. Je opatren vezickou se zvonici, kterou dnes kryje drevena sindel.
U kostela je jednopatrova fara a v popredi stoji cenne barokni sousosi sv. Linharta z doby kolem roku 1740. Hlavicky kostel byl v minulosti vyhlasenym poutnim mstem, kde se schazeli poutnici i se svym domacim zvirectvem, aby zazehnali zvireci mor.
