St. Mary's Chapel Voort

During the war pastor J.C. Verhoeven promised to have chapels to be built if the village of Riethoven would come out of the war unscaved.
After the war it appeared that indeed there were no victims from Riethoven, nor was there material damage.
The pastor kept his word and a local builder built four little chapels.
The chapels are being taken care of by people in close by.
