“An oasis of peace in a peaceful town”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

The previous reviewer has given all the detailed information required.

Suffice it to add that this church is unusually compact, almost as wide as it is long. The (modern) stained-glass windows are delightful. On a warm June morning this church was a quiet haven of peace in a town - Meisenheim - which is itself quiet and peaceful. Whether or not you are religious this is balm for the soul.

“Noteworthy”
Reviewed October 7, 2011

This is one of those churches where one needs to take time to absorb its "aura". It is a large church which has a solemn aura. There is a lot to check out: many epitaphs, a beautiful altar, the finely decorated ceiling... After the transfer of rights on the shared Matthias Church in 1896 the Catholic parish built their own parish church, neo-Gothic style Hall church, architect Ludwig Becker. Consecrated by Bishop Michael Felix Korum. Interior: 1905 neo-Gothic winged altar, a 15th century sacramental shrine and a 1901 organ (Michael Körfer from Gau-Algesheim). The 59-metre high tower is visible from afar. All 12 consecration crosses are still to be seen on the 12 strong pillars, depicting the 12 Apostles of Jesus. A renovation of the Interior is scheduled.
