Kath. Pfarrkirche St. Quirinus ("Eifeldom") in Langenfeld

Langenfeld

The Catholic parish church of St. Quirinius in Langenfeld is popularly called "Eifeldom" due to its imposing size. It was built between 1894 and 1898 and is inextricably linked to the name of Father Thewes, who came to Langenfeld in 1884. With all his strength he enforces the construction of the present parish church, even without the permission of the authority in Trier. The church was blessed on 16.09.1899 and consecrated on 10.05.1900.

Pfarrkirche St. Valerius, Baar-Wanderath

The verifiable building history of the parish church in Wanderath begins in the 13th century. The original church is Romanesque, around 1500 the late Gothic nave, today's aisle, was built with the help of the Counts of Virneburg, who were the patrons of the church. When the church was enlarged by a south and north aisle around 1530, the side walls of the old church were broken through. In 1655 Wanderath becomes an independent parish. These include the places Engeln, Büchel, Freilingen, Nitz, Ober- Mittel- and Niederbaar, Herresbach, Eschbach, Döttingen, Siebenbach and Drees. Virneburg was added at the beginning of the 19th century. For this, Drees is assigned to Welcherath. In 1896/1897 the current, neo-Gothic main nave was built. The two Gothic aisles are being demolished. In 1921/1922 the church was expanded again. The then octagonal sacristy was torn down and the current one built. The main nave was lengthened by 10 m and the gallery was built. The tower was raised by 6 meters. In addition, the church received a continuous roof area. Since then, the outward view has not changed. Since Wanderath only consisted of a church, a rectory, a school and a residential building until the middle of the 19th century, there are many legends and myths surrounding the question of why a church was built in the poor Wanderath at all.
