Filialkirche St.Anna, Kattenes

  • Kattenes

The St.Anna branch church in Kattenes, Oberdorfstraße, was built in 1899-1901 (neo-Gothic style) by the Hatzenport master builder Peter Moritz in place of an old chapel. This old chapel was dedicated to St. Anne and St. Bernard and was located in the cemetery directly on Moselstraße. In the church of St. Anne there is a special cultural monument, one of the last three altars in Europe carved from a single stone, dating back to 1667. The altar was donated to the church by the monastery of Maria Laach. It depicts St. Anne, with the Virgin Mary to the right, both holding the infant Jesus together. They are surrounded by four angels and above the group hovers the Holy Spirit. Below them is the suffering face of Jesus "ecce homo". Two late Gothic wooden figures, Anthony the Hermit and St. Bernard from the second half of the 15th century frame the main image. Above the main picture, between the two figures of Peter and Paul, one recognizes the Adoration of the Three Kings at the manger. The finale is a crucifixion group with John and Mary under the crucified Jesus. Three windows behind the altar of St. Anne symbolically represent the Lauretan Litany. The fourth window on the right refers to the 7 sacraments. In the tower of the church there are three bells: The oldest bell dates from 1467, another bell from 1609, and the third bell from the year of the church expansion in 1972. Opening hours: The vestibule of the church is open and allows a view of the interior of the church and The Altar of St. Anne.
