Since 1797 the pilgrimage to St. Rochus has been on the program of the people in city district Lohausen. They asked the saint for help with a cattle disease and promised to walk the around seven kilometres each year on Sunday after the feast of the apostles Peter and Paul. Generation after generation has kept this promise. Today, after more than 200 years later, they got up early and had Holy Mass in St. Rochus at 8 a.m .
Little attention is paid to this pilgrimage. But by doing this year after year people testify to their faith – and they are a himmelsleuchten.
