In all this complex of the second half of the 19th century belonged to Trier Curia of the priestly society of Saint Carlo Borromeo, the principal building is the hospital. All other facilities play a supporting and, in fact, subordinate role. Except, of course, the church. Here they care not only about the physical health of their patients, but also about their spiritual education. Prior to extensive renovation, started in the complex in the last third of the 20th century there was a Renaissance (as far as can be judged according to the pictures) Johanniskirche. However, it does not fit into the expansion and refurbishment plan of the hospital complex, and was demolished. Instead, there is now Mutterhauskirche St Josef. This is not surprising, because Saint Joseph is the patron of the society of Saint Carlo Borromeo. The new Church is quite modest in size and decoration. Several sculptures on the pillars and on the right a crucifix in the altar room, not more. But it is very bright.…

I wished to see it from its interior but failed. The exterior caught my attention as it is for sure an attractive building. I later came to know that is a relatively new church compared to other churches in Trier but it is a structure that is for sure worth seeing.

In this church is the underskirt of Holy Elisabeth von Thüringen preserved as a relic. The fourteen stations of the way of the cross (master Potter Jacob Square-Wagner) were blessed in 1871. During the construction of the hospital in 1969 these were replaced, but the way of the cross made by Jacob is still on display in the monastery garden of the Borromäerinnen. In 1866 the Church had an organ (built by Breidenfeld) with two keyboards and 27 registers. 1971 Firm Alfred Führer built the current organ according to a former organ from a catalog that was designed by Diocesan architect Alois Peitz, published by Wolfgang Oehms.…
