Damian Memorial Room in Werne

The Catholic Church Maria Frieden in Werne (Germany) has a long shared history with our congregation. In 1955, the Christophorus Gymnasium of our community was built near the church and a deep friendship developed. Generations of parishioners have received their education at the Gymnasium, and Fathers of our religious community have been pastors of the parish for almost 30 years.

Maria Frieden is no longer an independent parish, but continues to be used regularly as a church for the district.

A stained-glass window  in the church  shows Fr. Damian and commemorates the close bond between the order and the community. To bring out Father Damian's person, the faithful established in 20!8  a Damian memory room. It contains pictures, objects from the South Sea and literature about Damian de Veuster. The eye catcher is currently the altar with the chasuble of Father Damian, which was loaned by the provincial council. The large Damian painting from the chapel of Arnstein Abbey was given to the church as a permanent loan. During Lent 2019, the "evensongs" take place here. The companion is Father Damian with the themes: "Departure to the edges - service to body and soul – devotion withoput borders“.
