The Chapel of Saint-Roch

6870 Mirwart



Description

Saint Roch (+ 1337) is said to be protected from or cured of the plague. His cult was widely spread in our region, particularly in the 17th century period of epidemics. In 1636, the death toll assumed terrifying proportion in Saint-Hubert and the surrounding localities. In 1648, at the top of Rue du Mont (Mount street) a chapel was built in honour of the saint, and it was vowed to celebrate mass each year on 16th August.
