Maria chapel Lambertusstraat Someren-Eind

After the church of Somern-Eind was demolished in 2013, it turned out that there was a need to light a candle and say a prayer in peace in the center of the village. That is why, at the initiative of the location council, work has been done on the realization of the new Maria chapel. 

The Eindhoven architect Maarten van Vroonhoven was approached, he designed a building of sustainable thermally treated wood: Fraké Noir. The gutter and drainage are ingeniously incorporated into the walls, the water is absorbed in the gravel tray that has been installed around the chapel and the back wall has window frames in the shape of a cross with attractive stained glass. The heart of this cross is connected in one line with the church tower further on, which has survived the demolition of the church building.

The heart of this cross is connected in one line with the church tower further on, which has survived the demolition of the church building.

With the help of a number of volunteers, a contractor from Eindhoven realized the construction. 

The interior consists of a candle table, a number of seats and a statue of the Virgin Mary. That image is on part of the old altar from the church and comes from the church of Lierop, later it went to the Pauluskerk in Noord. After the demolition of this building, this statue of the Virgin was moved to Someren-Eind. 

The daily opening hours of the Lady Chapel are from 09:00 to 20:00 in the summer months, in the winter it closes at 17:00.
