Parochie St. Nicolaas

Meijel, Limburg Netherlands

Roman Catholic

Like most Catholic churches built after World War II, the funds were collected door-to-door from parishioners. One cent per day per child was the standard in Meijel for more than 10 years. The church, designed by renowned architect Fritis Peutz, was consecrated in 1955. The silhouette resembles a medieval church, but is made of layers of brick and marl with a reinforced concrete spire. The church has a St. Nicholas relic.
