Brigitta-Kapelle Macken

  • Macken

In 1910 we find in the chronicle of the village of Macken note: "In the woods above the village, a new chapel was built in place of an old one, using municipal funds." According to the information of older citizens, the old chapel was a larger "Materl" (altar with a small vestibule). The new and larger chapel was often visited by the faithful population of the village; especially by "women in hope" who prayed for a good course of pregnancy and for a healthy child. In 1980, a celebration was held for the 70th anniversary of the "Brigitta Chapel". The proceeds were used to install new wrought iron grills on the windows. In 1983 the "Brigitta Chapel" was placed under protection as a cultural monument. In the following year, preparations for the restoration, draining and repair of the "Brigitta Chapel" were initiated. Almost 1000 hours of work were done by the population of the village for the restoration of the "Kapelle am Wäldchen". And hardworking hands from the neighborhood still maintain the beautiful chapel on the outskirts of Macken today.
