Pancratius Church - 's-Heerenberg

N 51.875462006169 / E 6.2426638991

From 1259 to 1895, the old church at the Hof van Bergh in 's-Heerenberg was used by both Protestants and Catholics. As the population increased, joint use of the church became increasingly complicated, not least because it was forbidden to profess the Catholic faith in public. Only after a constitutional amendment in 1848 did this change.

Because the vast majority of 's-Heerenbergers remained Catholic, there was a growing need for a church of their own. It came in 1895. After years of tug-of-war over the church bells dating from 1495, which originally belonged to the Catholics, they now hang proudly in this new three-aisled cruciform basilica in neo-Gothic style, the Catholic Pancratius Church on Hofstraat. The windows were stained glass by Heinrich Geuer, the ironwork is by the Brom firm and the organ was built by Maarschalkerweerd.

In this church, you can see an exhibition of priests who died in concentration camps during World War II, there are also changing exhibitions.
