Once Pericei's inhabitants were Catholics, had a church built in middle Ages. As a result of the reforming current which spread here in 1543 the medieval church became in 1658 reformed. The present church's construction began in 1668 from the castle Báthory materials.

The works were interrupted by the Turkish-Tartars invasion and were restarted after the danger passed. First the roof was finished, afterwards the door in 1769 and the tower in 1774. The pulpit and the pulpit's crown were finished in 1782 and the chorus in 1809. The bell made in 1790 was offered to the revolutionaries in 1848 but because it was not used it was brought back in the locality. Finally it was taken in the First World War. The tower burnt in 1802 because of a lightning and it was rebuilt in 1826. The originally casetted ceiling was removed in 1884.

Organ built in 1936 by Wegenstein Lipót. At the entrance there are two sarcophagus lids made in 1570-80. Although faces, hands and legs cut off the knight's figures with armor can be distinguished on them. Probably one of them is the sarcophagus of the 18 years Bathory Elek's boy.
