The Church for Immaculate Conception in Eupen, Province of Liège/Belgium, is a Roman Catholic church building and a former monastery church in the Capuchin. In some sources and in the population as well as in travel guides, it is therefore simply called Eupen or Capuchin Church Eupen. Under her French name: "Sainte Marie", she is the religious center, especially for the Francophone inhabitants of the city. Today's church building was built between 1773 and 1776 according to plans by the Milanese architect Joseph Moretti, who lived in Aachen. The former convent building, which followed south, was transferred to the city in 1797 after the secularization and the withdrawal of the Capuchins and has served as a town hall of Eupen since 1863. Since the 1990s, the church has been part of the Eupen-Kettenis parish association in Deanery 05 of the diocese of Liège and has been a listed building with the former convent building since 1983.
