Our Lady of Lourdes Chapel, Scheveningen

The parish of Our Lady of Lourdes was founded on December 19, 1912, and already in 1913, the Lourdes Chapel, Scheveningen was built and put into use. This was the first part of the original building plans of architect Alexander J. Kropholler, which included the adjoining rectory and private houses around the church.

For the parishioners in the northern part of the Scheveningen chapel remained for years their place of meeting, because war and discord caused the delay.

Beauty Commission of the Hague could not agree with the plan, which Kropholler withdrew. His pupil CM van Moorsel Pzn. produced in 1920 a design that it could find favor in the eyes of the committee.

Yet it was still lasted until February 11, 1925 was laid the first stone. The solid-built church was consecrated on August 25, 1926 at the Lourdes Chapel, Scheveningen, for lack of money even without tower. Which only came in 1965.
